"We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken." -Looking For Alaska, John Green

I scream myself awake
the words stuck on my tongue
it burns until I feel no more
it burns till I am numb

I hate that you don't see me
and the fire flush on my skin
but through it all
beside it all
beneath it all
with out it all
I still hear your name
and grin.

Not gonna lie, I was inspired by a JohnxSherlock fanfiction. (Sorry not sorry.)

This is really cool :) I love the repetiveness of the last few lines especially.

The idea of this poem is really novel and inspiring. Love how you kept us engaged!
