new school = new people ... out of sight out of mind
losing her too f-a-s-t no more talking [secrets] easy laughter
no more small baby bunnies so so small grow up and -suddenly- gone gone gone
            [disappear like friends]
she has new school new life new friends; gone is lex and bekah bex
replaced replace just no more s p a c e her life is FULL i am not there [no room for me]

she thinks she knows his story [[she doesn't know everything does she?]]
miss him lay awake and think of him running laughing talking screaming: memories thoughts wishes [tears]
[cry at night.]
miss him ... bet he doesn't miss me

paige & ainsley : age & pains-ley <sm>tiny children</sm> grow up too f a s t
[time flies when they're having fun]
no more messy cartwheels lisping laughter rocking you to sleep
then when i think i've finally lost them
ains c r a w l s into my lap when she cries
paigey breaks a brittle wrist bone needs a hand to hold
maybe ... one more year of small?

losing things like friends and kids and stupid grades are s l i p p i n g a w a y
but memories stick - for better or for worse - don't know which - maybe both

skits in class -- irony she says? well here's irony indeed: i am a murderer
words can hurt and some cut like casual knives but no one sees the scars
they make fun of me for being quiet [don't know how much is hiding in my head]

love if held too tightly d i s s o l v e s
                         slips away
                         disappears like smoke
             hold your breath don't let it go
             what if i make a mistake? slip up? let her see who i really am?
                         what if she doesn't love me anymore
                         is scared of me
                         hates me for what i've done & who i've been
keep your distance and don't be a burden [easy just don't be a person]

am i not a real person? but
people are whole.

bad day bad
start again + make a wish and vanish day [should have just stayed home]
do-over day fail at talking fail at writing fail at working fail at life
he asks what is wrong do i want to talk about it ... gentle words slice me open
bolt before you f
                l apart go to bed get up and do it all again

<nail-gouged arms> <rubber-banded wrists> <scraped knees> <scraped knees> <bruised thighs> <sliced ribs> <penciled skin> she SEES mad hands bad hands flat on desk! no hurting no hurting stop stop stop
i want to say: i can't stop.
i make mistakes / i screw up / i fail / i fix [fact of life]
no harm won't last fade away another day
and then i'll start all over again [and again and again]

walking a c r o s s the field wind screams in my ears but quieter that way
                blessed silence [the world is gone]
electric shadow, wild-blown hair everywhere [still not enough wind to pull myself together]

she moves with the l o o s e limbs of a body [remembering] the weight

That was written really well. The style of it is really amazing. I wish I could write like that... ;3;

Thanks. I wasn't really capable at that point in time of writing anything more coherent than that, but it expressed what I was feeling surprisingly well.

Yeah. It's really quite awesome.
