Teenage Heart

Craving solitude
Desperately in need of your rejection to feel perfect
Needing a reason to extinguish the pain by lighting my own flame
Coughing up the burning sensation of my mistakes. I feel at home
I don't think anyone can save me
Too lost in the pain of my past and buried underneath my fear, I am
Don't try to save me
Nor am I dying nor in the need to be rescued
Survivor, I am, making my way through the dark and feeling alive
A woman but not human, quite
One in the world with the voice of them all
My flame is lit
And may it burn on
