Existence

I need a reason to exist.

I thought you could give me one.

But instead you showed me my nightmares.

So I hold on to you more.

The fear of letting you go is haunting me.

Why do I want the thing that makes me fear?

Why do I want the things that hurt me...

I continue to sleep only to dream of a perfect reality.

But the moon threatens my deepest secrets.

The stars remembering my sweetest memories.

But the dark night itself chooses to show me my fears.

I've heard that pain makes people change.

But it only makes me weak.

I won't waste any more days cherishing your existence and the pain you gave me.

It only makes you push me away.

But at this point...

Your existence only makes mine want to end.
