"There is no greater agony than an untold story within you" - Maya Angelou


set down 

       the razor 

your perfect skin

       is not paper

please, please don’t 

      scar it. 

I know you 

       are hurting. 


i’ve seen the 

      way you gaze

at stars, like they 

      are too far away to 

ever help you. 

        but i believe 

they are here 

       for a reason, 

just like us. 


it’s okay 

    to cry sometimes,

we all get high

     and low. 

that’s the beauty 

      of tomorrow, 

we get to wake up

      and start again. 


you are not


please don’t go.

     i need you.
