Regress
JKWeb

in my fucked-up years
 1
as a sub-adult
 2
I so wished to die
 3
have the scars on my arms to prove it
 4
 
 
desperate attempts at love
 5
acne, crooked teeth
 6
fucking awkwardness of a teen
 7
 
 
needing more
 8
than a hug from mother
 9
 
 
getting drunk at a party
 10
a fatal bow to beauty
 11
 
 
staggering home lonely
 12
wishing to God
 13
I’d get swept away
 14
in Nordic wind
 15
 
 
crawl in a cave
 16
die in the dark womb
 17
from where I was induced

this is a brooding rant and you dared to say it and for that I am giving you kudo's for the masterful bitch session you've managed to capture the terrible teens ex-aspirations -- it's authentic
