I tried to love you, to love myself


You’re everything  
I hate in the world  
 
But when I felt
Your personality drip
Against my lips
Suddenly, I was dying of thirst  
 
You’re everything  
I hate in myself  
 
The world seems  
Cold and empty
There’s pain everywhere  
It lingers on everything  
 
I hear your smooth voice  
In my head  
Telling me that
You wish I was dead
 
I never want to  
Open my eyes  
 
I tried to love you
To love the world
And myself
To turn the dark into light
 
But my love drowned  
In heart wrenching agony  
Into the deepest depths  
Of a pitch black ocean

How can you love what’s terrible?
But everything’s terrible, so how can you not?
