“Am I better off living through death,
Or dying an invisible ghost?
Am I better off speaking in silence,
Or screaming so loud no one will hear?
I fake a smile,
But it's killed by you,
I fake a soul,
But that dies, too.
So I fake my life,
What else can I do?
Take me in, spit me out,
And I scream and scream and shout,
But you can't hear my pain,
My blood's nothing but a worthless stain.
I fake a smile,
But it's killed by you.
I fake a soul,
But that dies, too.
So I fake my life,
What else can I do?
And if one day I wake up gone,
Maybe people will see through,
But until then the lies will rule.
And sometimes I think
I'm better off dead,
But then I realize
I already am.”
Olivia Rivers, Tone Deaf

“Close your eyes
When clarity's gone and logic is done and love flees out the doorway,
When kisses hurt and your heart is cursed and so carelessly cast away,
When life's tumbling down, down, down,
And nothing's there when you look up,
Except the innocence you let life corrupt.
Just close your eyes,
Feel my hand in yours and know you're alive,
Just close your eyes,
Feel my lips on yours and know you'll survive,
Oh, close your eyes,
And in the darkness of the hour,
Know that I'll be here forever,
Forever yours,
I'll never go.”
Olivia Rivers, Tone Deaf

“Her gaze flicks back to my lips, and for a moment, I think she’s waiting for me to respond. But then she throws herself into my arms and kisses me.
Finally. That’s the only word running through my head as I kiss her back. Maybe not the most romantic sentiment, but I can’t help it. All those times we’ve kissed, she’s felt so hesitant. Now she’s just as desperate as I am, and her lips are sweet and incredible.”
Olivia Rivers, Tone Deaf
