Sometimes, when things don’t go right with life

Times when you find yourself waking up on the wrong side of the bed more often than not

Times when you wonder if you weren’t meant to be born as who you are now

Have you ever had the gnawing thought that you have been living someone else’s life all along? Another child’s, perhaps...

Maybe then you wouldn’t have gotten compared all the bloody time to other children from other families who seem more put-together when in reality, everybody is just playing a game of dollhouse

Maybe then, there wouldn’t be any such things as monthly shrink visits because your mental health would be in tip-top condition

You’re seen as an ordinary person for once in your damn life- another Jane Doe instead of the socially-awkward teen you’ll always be known as even though you’re no longer a teen

Perhaps then, nobody would treat you as the rare jewel you are but a simple rhinestone

Perhaps then, you wouldn’t have the depth you have right now to be even writing this

Perhaps then, you might be 'just like everybody else'

I am metaphorically dying of a metaphorical form of cancer. Half my brain cells have been metaphorically eaten up by it.I keep suffering from metaphorical focal attacks in the form of panic attacks and have to undergo metaphorical radiotherapy in the form of psychiatry every few months. Only, unlike actual cancer, I don't have metaphorical sympathizers. Instead, I get stigmatized as a weirdo just as AIDS sufferers get stigmatized as dirty crackheads. Instead of prayers, visits, and flowers, I get gossips, stares, and when I was younger, cane lashings.
Don't get me wrong, though. Just as a cancer patient would, I stay at home most of the time. And just like one, I get pity and concern for all the wrong reasons.
The only difference is that when I do die at the hands of my disease, (touch shoot that that doesn't happen) instead of a man on a throne welcoming me into his arms as a whole new being, I'd get snubbed and then thrown into the depths of hell
...for "self-murder".
Social anxiety is like an everyday tightrope act where the spectators are the whole frickin' world. Below me is a lake of depression. One wrong step- one dumb action or word- one "full retard" incident and down I plunge into the cold and dark depths like a fall from grace, drowning in worry over how disappointing a performer I am, how the whole show is now spoiled, all thanks to me...
Suddenly, like a miracle and without warning, I'm whisked out of the water, bone-dry by some invisible hand and thrown onto the trapezes instead- my next act- so as to sway as high as I can from mood swing to mood swing in this circus of disorders I work in day to day, travelling from gig to gig in a cage of painful memories
...with a smiley mask painted on
It doesn't take a genius to know that I'm dead.
You can tell that from my cold eyes, my frozen-over brows, and the way I don't think twice before practically throwing my hand into a stove just to feel some warmth that I desperately need someone like you to give me but can't because everytime you try to let me in through your window to shelter me from the cold around my bare shoulders, I always either vanish into thin air or fall off your window ledge like a residual haunting.
Looks like your hotness was never enough to combat my chill- like we always joked about.
Only now, it isn't a joke.
I keep trying to find that warmth in places that I shouldn't and I suppose that was in you because you melted me and then left me lying on the ground for someone else to clear up
...someone as cold as me to freeze me back up again...
Cobwebs for hair,
Candlewax for tears,
Broken windows for a mouth,
Tattered curtains for garments,
You're not a girl,
You're an abandoned house
Waiting for someone to come a-knocking on your boarded-up front door of a heart
Who'd bothered to scale the high walls you've built up around you
And now stands shivering in the cold air that is rumoured to surround you everytime someone comes near, keeping trespassers off your property for good,
The cold air emitting from the "ghosts inside", all of whom are just really lonely and sad spirits and not the least bit frightening- at least not to him who stands at your doorstep
...just knocking,
Let him in.
