Twisted

You’re sick

And twisted

With your mind games

You control my every move

Your selfish needs

I am forced to prioritize

You have me

And it’s still not enough for you

You need to drain me

Of everything I am

Of everything I ever was

I am nothing more to you

Than your favourite toy

To play with

Than destroy

But I won’t let you win

I will never let you win

I will fight you

Maybe not today

Maybe not even tomorrow

But one day

I will break free

Europe!

I know I don’t usually post on Saturdays but I just decided that I’m gonna be travelling to Europe in a few weeks so I just quickly wanted to ask everyone if they have any suggestions for what places I should visit. Like are there any particular places you loved seeing or even any places you want to really see. Any suggestions are appreciated! Thanks a lot 🙂

To The Men I Once Loved

The first man I ever loved

Was to busy trying to get popular

To notice that I existed

The second man I ever loved

Was too busy learning who he was

To notice that I existed

The third man I ever loved

Was too busy studying

To notice that I existed

The fourth man I ever loved

Was too busy loving himself

To notice that I existed

To all the men I’ve ever loved

Who were too busy to notice me

Thank you for teaching me

How to love myself when you didn’t

Your Eyes

Your eyes

Shouted the truth

The truth that you

Never had the decency

To tell me yourself

Your eyes

Gave away

The disappointment

The grief

The anger

And the hatred

You felt

When I chose to be myself

When I chose my own path

When I stopped blindly obeying you

When I chose to be me

Your eyes told me things

You were too afraid to tell me yourself

Since a lot of people have been asking me about the images I have been using you can find out more about the image used and artist here.

Not only does she make funny comics like the above one but she also makes some very relatable ones that I feel like most people can really relate to. She tackles everything from social awkwardness to a bad hair day.
