Erin | 123 comments The Beginning Of Moving On

My secret is out
She learned about my suicide attempt
She learned that I hated my guts
I was so afraid
Yet all she wants to do is make it okay

I didn't think being okay would ever be possible
I thought I'd be stuck in that void forever
But she held out her hand
And looked me in the eyes

She swore it would be okay
And for the first time I can actually believe it
And so now I am taking a deep breath as I announce,
"This is the beginning of me moving on!"

I am moving on from all this
I am moving on from anger
I am moving on from hate
Strange fruit and cold eyes and hands that don't know what they're doing
Hearts that don't even care
Wicked smiles sharp teeth and jagged edged lies
Jagged edges tears that tear you apart inside
Birds and shoves and ridicule
I am moving on from this

I am moving on from all this
I am moving on from despair
Black holes inside that take you down to the grave
Seeing tearstains reflected in every face
Rain
That doesn't stop
Even when you beg it to, and people who hold you down in the pit with both hands
I am moving on from this

I am moving on from all this
I am moving on from envy
Her hand in the back pocket of your jeans
Scores and scores of girls with perfect stomachs, perfect thighs
Magazines and hairstyles and makeup just to make you feel ashamed
Freedom in dark blue eyes
A freedom I will never taste
I am moving on from this

I am moving on from all this
I am moving on from assumptions and doubt
Whispers in the locker room, fingers quickly hidden, smiles wiped up with a napkin
As you turn to see
They aren't talking about you
He didn't do that last week
She's not evil enough inside to have made up such a story
About you
That you can't possibly be good enough to stand on your own two feet
I am moving on from this

I am moving on from all this
I am moving on from fear
Lightning in the middle of the night
Dark cars parked outside on the street, windows rolling up when you walk by
Ten fingers, four with heavy rings, that roll up into fists like heavy muted bricks
A lock on your door that doesn't work anymore
I am moving on from this

I am moving on from all this
I am packing my bags
I am lifting my head
I am dreaming of a better life
I am looking for a better me
Sharp fingers, sharp questions thrown like daggers, don't bother me
It doesn't matter where I'm going. All that matters is
I fought you long enough
I stood there long enough
I hid my face long enough
I drowned my sorrows long enough
I laid alone long enough
And I am moving on

So here goes, this'll probably be terrible but I'm too tired to care

Goodbye

You always said I was your best friend
But I think you didn't realize,
it was because I was the only one
who let you push me around
But I guess that'll have to end

Because I'm tried of taking crap from you
When I am always friendly to you
And I think
You're going to realize just how cold I can be
How fast I'll ruin any chance to start anew

You tell me you're mad
But I know it's because
I stopped being so easy too push
I gave up being your friend
You're upset? Oh, well that's too bad

Not like you ever tried to break me down
Not like you ever were cold to me
Or made fun of every mistake I made
And every one of my flaws
So, goodbye, hopefully I won't see you around


I stand by my previous statement lol it is terrible but eh
