Sometimes, when i'm on the edge of falling,
My mind wanders back, to all the mistakes,
The irreparable, the foolish, the wise.
They follow me, as shadows I cant hide.
Every person I've hurt creeps at the corners,  
I see myself now, as I was then.
When a drip of red was all I was,
And I expected black to seep into my veins,
Because the only power I had, was those words.

I'd write all the things I wanted to be,
Onto my skin, until there was nothing but black,
And inside, my heart would sink,
Slowly, it would fade, and everything I wanted,
Washed away. Replaced with grey.

My name's Emily,
I'm twenty
And I write.

There's a beauty in silence,
In our room late at night,
When the tyres stop their screeching,
And dust motes dance in light.

I know it's a pain, but it has to be said, please don't steal my work, or use it elsewhere without asking me first.
I never wanted to love,
I wanted to believe that nothing was that pure
That even daisies, all pure and white,
Grew as a product of our spite,
Cause after all we're the weeds,
Soon to implode, because, what else?
We're the blight of blood white
On grass we promised to leave as our
Neutral ground,
The place we were both free,
Back before I was you,
And you were me.
