inkskinned

see, i felt like
there was a big fucking hole
right in my chest
a shadow i could not
outdistance

see, i made jokes all the time
because i was already so bruised
why not make myself
the punchline

see, i’m one of those
“burn out in the glory of fire”
types, always the
funny man, always
quick with a smile,
always full of liquor
by the end of the night

nobody even noticed
when i wanted
to die

you can’t hurt me worse than i’ve already hurt myself, my love // r.i.d (via inkskinned)
