Dark Paradise

"All my friends ask me why I stay strong// Tell ‘em when you find true love it lives on// that’s why I stay here,

And there’s no remedy// For memory// Your face is like a melody// It won’t leave my head// Your soul is haunting me// And telling me// That everything is fine// But I wish I was dead,

Every time I close my eyes// It’s like a dark paradise// No one compares to you// I’m scared that you// Won’t be waiting on the other side// Every time I close my eyes// It’s like a dark paradise// No one compares to you// But there’s no you // Except in my dreams tonight”

A rib cage.

"Dear daughter," they said,
“Please never wear your heart on your sleeve.”
But compassion drove me to sew it there. I wore it like an accessory. It was something I was recognized by; until one day
I gave it away.
I watched it grow I learned what love was.

But my heart was handed back to me
Because it was no longer needed.
No longer wanted.

I took it back; broken, beaten, different.
I tucked it away where it should’ve always stayed,
In the darkest part
of the meaty center of my body
Barricaded by bones that bend and do not break

They call it a cage for a reason
It is meant to lock away your pain
Your love. Your soul.
You in your purest form;
Your heart.

"My family is suffocating me with pressure to be a perfect student and daughter." (r.i.d)

people always ask me why i’m going into teaching instead of being a writer.

the number of notes on this in less than 24 hours and the number of people who said “same” or “exactly” or “about me” - that’s why. there is so much fundamentally wrong with our system. The only way to change it is from within.
