"I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for what I'm not"
~Kurt Cobain

I want to be

someone's princess

beautiful, perfect, flawless


I want to be

the reason they get up in the morning


I want to make them smile

even when mine is fading


I just want to be loved

like the ocean loves the shore

always reaching out to wash it away within



Like the sky loves the stars

clearing spreading itself thin

just to allow them to be seen


Like the angels love their wings

the reason they can feel the wind in their hair

the reason they are free.




I want to be that for someone

I want someone to be that for me.


I’m nothing right now

but still everything

somehow seems to go wrong


Where’s the love?


Did it just

fly like a bird from a cage

dive off the deep end forgetting

to take a breath before it struggled

to death?


Well you know what?


I’m done.

Done loving you

loving myself.

I can be plain plaid and straight jacketed/


I’ll just watch


But I’m left wishing

I wish I could be your princess

as the crown drops and shatters

splintering and slicing me

until I bleed into the ocean you bled before


Funny the blood is black

perhaps some of my soul leaked onto the asphalt

by your toes

And maybe when I die.


You’ll understand as I whisper

As. You. Wish.


Because I’ll never be a princess

But perhaps I’ll be serving you until the end
