So much hurting to get to this moment,
when I'm beneath you,
wanting it to go on and to end.

On the vanity, a tube of Love That Red,
a cake of pale pink powder,
and scribbled across the mirror

No regrets

Day 8:
She just stared at me
as if she didn't understand.
But she did.
She gave up the Emerald City
for a memory.


Day 9:
If you suffer in the grave,
you can kill from it.


Day 10:
Sorrow had never knocked on my door
and if it had, I wouldn't have answered.


Day 11:
Lord have mercy, I'm still alive, I thought,
As I floated into the street beside the body of someone familiar,


Day 12:
It simply put on a new mask
and now it feeds off fear
that is mostly justified


Day 13:
They call me a cruel sonofabitch
just to aggravate me,
but my strength is the truth.


Day 14:
Those scissors you wielded like a surgeon
cut away that version of me
and now you don't know who I am

Day 1:
anyway, we were sick of bullshit rules
that make a girl go crazy.


Day 2:
They didn't worry about the future,
or what that lie might mean to me.


Day 3:
a member of the audience holds up
an object from your past
and you identify it with charades


Day 4:
"But I've already been tempted twice and given in.
Sin is so delicious,


Day 5:

Then as if on command,
I start running from childhood


Day 6:
Nobody believes the lies you tell,
but they want to
and that's enough.


Day 7:
After he told them, "Go ahead and kill me. I don't give a damn."
I am not that courageous, or am I.
