Sick From Them and You

cabin fever should not be a possibility
with so much family around.
their presence should simply counter the lonely
the madness

I am at home now, technically
but I feel so cold and no one notices
you would notice.
you call me from your house
and tell me you want to go home.

my stomach is sick and empty
I just don't get hungry anymore
my head spins as laurie tells me i'm going too fast
ease off the gas
don't use the brake
look over your shoulder
listen to my exact instructions.

fuck you, laurie.

I am going to crash on purpose
just so I don't receive that certificate
I will be the first one to scar her perfect record
because we just passed your house
and instead of pulling in the driveway
she made me drive right past

of course laurie can't know that my whole body hurts
my arms are itching, my back is twisting
my eyes cross without you to look at
my tongue aches for your taste.
this is the worst
but the worst part is
the worst is not even the worst part
the worst is
I can't stop it from getting worse

the only thing that helps
is when you sing me to sleep
with your breath in my hair
after your hands were running over me
waves of heat were washing through.

that touch is so toxic.
but your anti-venom is all i think i need

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
i don't know about this one. but i have to go to band practice now, so i'll look at it again later :P
Editing stage: 


A very emotive piece with many points that show a different face,
One of being left out of life at home ,
another missing someone so bad that life means nothing.
thoughts of not listening to anyone as no one listens to you and then Laurie who has moved a little to one side and left you with love memories that devour you..
A grand mixture of many of lifes problems, I hope most of this is fiction lol as some always are part of us its just how we deal with them.
Sorry I have read this a few times and hoped that someone else would have commented by now, but No so just let me know what gives with this one it is very interesting,
Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

thank goodness that's over! haha I had a terrible time with her. we drove past my girlfriend's house a lot and the class was the main reason I didn't see her for a while, and that's just no fun :P thanks for the read!
