Overbearing

this

girl

is

driving

me

crazy!

(and

that's

the last time

I'll confide

in you, by the way)

Cus you're making it worse

And I don't have time to do worse.

So next time, leave me alone.

I hate you

So god damn much

And I hope you die

And I hope I do too

I hate my life

I hate it

And maybe I'd be

Better off gone anyways

If I go

I hope you never get over it

Cus you're disgusting

And you deserve it

And I hope the guilt

Eats you away

Cus you did this to me.

American Daddy

I look at that hand on the bible 

An oath country sworn your wrath

And upon the steps of the Capitol

There lies the words of Plath:

Not God, But A Swastika.

I hated that Plath, nursery rhymes

Thought we were better with the times,

Didn't want to believe in that fat black heart

Or in the love of a fascist, tearing me apart

But the people here are cheering

While the eyes of Lincoln laugh

And the reflecting pool is cruel

Showing on our votes behalf.

Not

-------God---------

                  But

                          A

swastika.

Upon my foolish dreams -

on the worn pedestal seems

ideas, fair freedom schemes

But all they are are dreams.

There is no heaven

in the capitol today -

just union of me to you

sealed with those words, I do.

And as I watch this theater change

actors unable to touch, arrange

One stubborn thought bursts through:

You

are

not

God,

but

a

swastika

Ach, du.

lie to me

tell me I'm good enough

I'm young

and drunk

and desperate for attention

tell me I'm pretty;

I'm fucked up

and insecure

and got a bad intention

tell me I'm skinny

I'm not eating

and scared

I never did mention

tell me I'm strong

because I'm weak

and breaking

need an intervention

tell me I'm smart

cus' I feel dumb

and unimportant

a point of contention:

tell me I matter 

cus I feel small

and insignificant;

And like I don't matter at all

The Hardest Easy Thing

I'm laying here, trying to keep my eyes closed and ignoring the time - when I look at the time it makes it real, and I'm not ready for time to be real yet. But I do look, of course I do. And it's 2pm. I still can't get out of bed.

There are things I need to do today. Lots of them. Reading to be read, homework to be finished, errands to be completed. I don't have time to be a nonfunctioning human. I think all of this as I make no move to get up from under the covers. I'm not hungover, but I never took off last nights makeup and I'm sleeping in a dress. I desperately need a shower. I desperately need to clean the apartment. I desperately need to get my shit together.

Now I feel anxious, and it's 3pm but I'm still here. There comes voices outside my door - my roommates and some friends. I should go out and talk to them. Socializing is normal. I should do that. I'm hungry now, too. I could eat. We don't have much food, but I could get some. Stop at subway or something. Yeah I should do that. 4pm comes and I'm still here.

Most stores close at 5, and there are places I could go. I need some books for school, and I could go grocery shopping. Start the week off with real food, not just shitty over priced take out salads. I'm not a big salad person. It'd be nice to have a break from them. Voices come back my door, asking if I want to go out to dinner. I say no.

It's 6, then 7 and there's no point in getting up. I wasted my day. Again. We all get a set number of days here, and this is what I did with mine. Again.

It's not that hard. It isn't. It's not that hard to get out of bed. Billions of people do it every day. Billions. I'm just one person. What makes me the glitch? why is it so difficulty for me?

Hate

I'm done playing this game.

I'm walking away from the board.

If that means I never see you again -

See either of you again -

Then that's all the more reason to go.

Don't mistake this for a goodbye

Because you don't deserve one

But I'm sick of feeling this way -

All the time around you.

So fuck you both, I'm through.

Unanswered Texts

You can't make me smile

Like you used to

And I don't know

If that's my fault of yours

But I want to try on

A life without you

For a while, Cus maybe

I'll learn to laugh again

And stop thinking

These ugly things,

Because all I know

Is that I don't like

The not eating

Or cleaning

Or showering

Or not being able to get

Out of bed,

Feeling hungover

Till 3pm

And sitting in this

Black walled room.

Maybe it's not

You're fault at all

But I feel the dark

Pounding harder

Whenever I'm

With you -

And maybe I'll feel it

Less, without you too

Fuck the Sign

So it's nice to know

I can change

Hollywood

to hollyweed

And get

Six months

For the deed

But rape a women

And serve three

Then get

Out early -

democracy

Justice

is the exception

So get up

that erection

It's not

like we care

Who your rape

Will scare

This ain't

a fair trail

Sallow back

that bile

And violate me next time

Instead of

arranging words

Cus chances are

You won't even

get convicted.
