in an attempt to find comfort in the beautiful effects of being alone, I write. I write of the life that’s raw and unjustified. These passages are the only things I take pride in. But what good will that ever do If I never shared any of this mess with all of you?


And here she goes down the rabbit whole again. Like Alice chasing the unknown. Desperate for change but not knowing where to find it. My vices are hidden like phantom dragons. Coming out at night and leaving me with self loathing like a bad habit. No one knows the truth. Excuse excuse excuse. The things I say don't match what I do. They don't know that my innocence was robbed with my youth. Alice. Why do you do what you do? Alice why is darkness something you cling to? I pride myself on ideas that I don't see through. Alice, where does the rabbit hole lead to? Hurry quick I'll make the noose I'll stand there alive while you try to tie it loose. I say I'm lost but that's not true. I'm self aware of the self abuse. Alice will you always judge those that remind you

That's funny, that's exactly what I do too. It's almost always the rhythm first.

Jason, thank you so much! That’s my favorite part as well! In most of my entries I almost sing them while reviewing. It’s a style of write I almost can’t shake!

Hi Chelsea, really, really good sample. Favourite line, for it's rhythmic beat: "I'm self aware of the self abuse." Very hard hitting though but I do love the dark edge to it.
