Your love was all I wanted.
Your approval.
To hear “ Im proud of you son “
To be raised by you.
I wanted to come home and run to your arms.
And to work in the garage with you.
I wanted you to teach me to drive my first car.
And how to shave.
And help me with homework at the kitchen table.
For so long I dreamed of having that.

Watching from the corners like creeps
It's so scary and it's shameful I wish I had a family who wanted me
Home, I just want to be home

Somewhere in the garden
by Author Reinvented

Till the gold has all been stolen,
The clay is cracked and broken,

Kill Me, Please.
by Frangipani Retrograde

I wrote some words
From the deepest of my soul
Wrote them on my right knee
Should I stay or should I go

I've had showers and
I've changed my clothes
But I keep them where you can't see
Let me die. Kill me, please.
