Every morning,
she wakes up to a
hollow chest & stormy,
red rimmed eyes.

It's so easy to be in love
with being in love;
swallowing fake truths
& sincere lies.

But her heart—
it forgot how to smile
two years ago,
because no one can tell
the difference between
imitations & reality.

please find me;
I'm lost between the cracks of
dying stars."

Desperate to breathe
yet wondering how it would feel
to drown,
she's never belonged
in this universe.
Or any other universe, for that matter.

This is really good. It  describes the feeling I once had, and still partially do. Really deep and meaningful.

A long time ago (it at least FEELS like a long time ago), I was really unhappy, just because I didn't like myself and figured no one else really did either. I'd see a car drive by and I would wonder what would happen if I stepped in front of it. If it would swerve and miss me. If it would hit me. If it would hurt. If I'd die... If I'd care. I knew that I would, that I wasn't really suicidal. That there were things I wanted to do and people I would meet and that none of it would happen if I got myself hit by a car. But I couldn't help but wonder. The last stanza just reminded me of that...

This was really beautiful :)
