using

i’m done… with being manipulated, with people that pretend to care about me, with people that run the second things go wrong, with being not seen as worthy and beautiful, with people who can lie straight to my face and not feel an ounce of regret. it’s a new year and i refuse to let you mess this year up for me too
—  i’m done with you
Just when I think I’ve learned from my mistakes, I find myself staring up at the ceiling of a strange room. With a stranger curled behind me, his arm resting on me. Trapping me to him.
—  Excerpt from the book I’ll never write // I’ll never learn

Started loving again
Thought when I lost that will to live I could never feel again
I’d give it one more shot and let someone in
I started loving again
I started loving again
I started loving again
I started loving again

I stopped wishing I was dead
Learned to love myself before anyone else
Become more than just a burden
I know I’m more than worthy of your time
I’m more than worthy of your time
I’m more than worthy of your time

Using

I started using again
Left my heart in rocky hill and a whole burning in bed
Needed a distraction from my head
Devil on my shoulder said try this instead
So I started using again

I started sleeping again
Traded late nights and sheep for vicodin
The guilt burning in my chest set in
I started sleeping again

I stopped wishing I was dead
Learned to love myself before anyone else
Become more than just a burden
I know I’m more than worthy of your time

I started smoking again
Guess I missed coughing my lungs up every morning
Needed anything to keep my breathing
To prevent my blood from bleeding
I started smoking again

I started loving again
Thought when I lost that will to live I could never feel again
I’ll give it one more shot and let someone in
I Started loving again
I started loving again
I started loving again
I started loving again

I stopped wishing I was dead
Learned to love myself before anyone else
Become more than just a burden
I know I’m more than worthy of your time
