Nothing That I Am - Poem by Alyssa Rieper

Never thought that things would seem
Vital to a daytime's dream
Hacked into a massacred heart
Talk to no one you can't tell apart

Carmine paint left in the sun

I will leave the hopeless with only a gun
I will cost everything that one can own
And I give nothing but a life alone
Is that me, to let one die?

Not to be my hated lie?
I will not go and give it all
I am not one but will I fall?
