please be my vampire,
my blood is in these pages.

*wanting What I Have Vs. Having What I Want

how often have I thought I knew what happiness was?

and best friend?

and lovers are kissing

How Does Love Grow?

How can I live each day as if it were my last
When I haven’t had my first

How can you hold my heart

My heart askew and my brain out of place
I narrowly escape insanity on a daily basis
fuzzy clouds of sorrow and regret
that I lay my head on each night

Drunk And Alone On A Saturday Night

a few glasses of wine is all it takes
its feels so good to ease the pain
he's thousands of miles away
