Giving up on optimistic dreams,
This girl's always goes to extremes.
Wanting to be a normal part of society,
My fallacious sanity lies to me.
Chemicals idle in a scattered brain,
Keep doling negative pain.
Borderline personality defines my soul,
Labeling me UN-whole.
A chemical suicide is fitted,
But I refuse to be committed.
I've hurt the ones I love,
Society is normal? What was I thinking of?
Others undoubtedly can sense,
Broken parts of me so immense.
They've their own issues to contend with,
Sanity is just an over-rated myth.
So why should I be anyone special,
I'm just another human vessel.
Just another anxious bag of bone,
Trembling in the darkness alone.
