will you give me a dose of inspiration?

her watercolor tears ignite your paper lies

nineteen | lost | dreamer

Air concealed by velvet smoke. Her tongue dances at the bittersweet taste of caffeine and champagne. Translucent words paint her pallid face. Dark circles obscure her knowing eyes. Those protruding bones of hers shatter to the rhythm of their lullaby.

Having late night free writes, staring out the window, drinking earl gray tea, getting lost in the pages of a paperback book, finding shapes in the clouds, and drifting away from reality are some of my favorite things.

I feel numb.

He was yelling at me again. He was in an all right mood earlier, but out of nowhere, he started yelling at me. He first started yelling at me for sleeping past 3 AM and waking up at 1 PM. It’s not my fault that I can’t fall asleep at night. It’s not my fault that I have insomnia. I don’t even like taking sleeping pills because they make me feel dazed the next day and impossible to think straight. He moved on to lecturing me about my eating habits and how watching me eat makes him feel uncomfortable. No one said that he needed to sit next to me during meals. At least I’m even eating. I can’t even process the rest of what just happened.

I feel cold. I feel empty. I feel numb. And this is the way things should be. Void of emotion. Even if it burns to choke back on stubborn tears.

I have so many thoughts running around my mind, keeping me awake at night. I stare at the ceiling, entering the void where everything is empty and nothing hurts. I want to know what it’s like to feel alive without feeling like a half-awake, half-dead zombie.

7:07 PM

I no longer feel lightheaded as I did before. I was lying down on my bed earlier, feeling dazed and numb at the same time. Everything felt so slow, but it wasn’t like the other times. My heart was restless inside its magnolia cage, beating quicker than it should have. It felt like I was trapped in the confines of vertigo, and confusion entered my mind without panic. There were no attacks, no screams, no cries. Just nothingness.

Shadows dance underneath my eyes. I feel alive.
