By Cheyenne Pilarz

I am so happy you made the choice to stay 
Even when life felt grey 
You washed your eyes, 
Filled with lies 
Swallowed the pill of change, 
And it was strange, 
how life 
completely washed away 
my pride. 
All aside, 
I couldn’t cry. 
To my depressed self, 
You won 
Darkness has been gone 
When you didn’t sleep til dawn, 
came when it felt over 
God, if I could just be fucking sober.  
Scars on my body remind me of you 
But, some things don’t hurt like they used to.
