Words From A Borderline

Today is another

Day like yesterday

I try to find something

Anything that will make me want to get up

I try to think of things in a positive way

I still sit here empty

I still sit here in sorrow

Longing for a life I never had

Because I need you more in this moment than I’ve ever needed anything in my life before. But I’m too scared to admit to myself that I’m desperate for you. Like I’m freezing and you’re the warmth that will soothe my aching bones. Maybe, if I’m brave enough to let your name escape my lips, that will break the spell and bring you back to me.

Because now, without you,
all I feel is lost.
And lost…
