I am the worst
She is the best
I hate my teeth
I love her smile
I’m so fat and ugly
She’s so beautiful
She’s the smartest person I know
She has the cutest quirks
I’m not funny
She tells the best nerdy jokes
I’m too quiet
She doesn’t pollute the air with useless gossip
I have nothing interesting to say
She says the most profound things
I’m not enough
She’s so much more than ‘enough’
Will anyone ever notice my pain?
Will I ever ask her why she hurts?
Will someone ever even acknowledge my existence?
Will I ever have the courage to say ‘hi’?
Will I ever be loved?
Will I ever be brave enough to tell her how I feel?
How much longer can I handle being alone?
How much longer can I handle leaving her alone?
I have to punish myself
What are those wounds on her wrists she tries to hide?
For not being enough
Why isn’t she eating anymore?
What else can I do?
What is she doing to herself?
I deserve nothing
She deserves the world
Not even life
Where has she gone? Where can I find her?
I am nothing
She is my everything, I must tell her
Not even alive
I found her too late
