Listen With Your Irises



Beauty doesn't usually walk to you
You need to bend to see the appeasing
The hurt that your brain cells undergo,
Let me help you find your meaning

So here,
F*ck your ex lover
They are lower than dirt and scum
And if you are still close
Be kind but NOT in love

F*ck your past mistakes
They’re aloud to still sting and hurt
Ignore people who rub it in
Or
Rub THEIR shame in dirt

F*ck the tears you cried and shed
Over a smudged morsel of a longing
Just hope the next set of tears
Find where they are
ACTUALLY belonging

F*ck the restless nights
Getting caught up in your brain
Tell the stupid lonely silence
To f*ck whoever let YOU
be in pain.

Oh and
F*ck the little words
That wiggled in your mind
That said that no one loves you
Because that is also a fucking lie

But most of all
F*ck the people that didn’t stop
Those thoughts right in there tracks
F*ck the people that say they care
But they leave and don’t come back

So now
You pick your broken heart right up
And glue it back together
The best revenge for a broken care
Is them seeing that you got better.
