this time last year

its been a year and a day

i say

since they held me down

since they put the needles in

since they told me id make it out again some way

it was her birthday

i was her baby all blue and cold

iv bruises

hospital gown

im glad i forgot

how long ago it was

what the beds smelled like

what the ambulance sounded like

she had chicago on her arm

why would you do it

answers are silly

why did she really name me emily

pills in a plastic cup

no shoes and nothing sharp

did you know you can drink conditioner?

looks like im better now, scars what do you say?


im glad that she forgot about last year yesterday

 and how she spent her birthday


About deadendemily

Emily lives in Austin, TX. She has a minor in chaos and a major in spray paint. She likes Vincent Price and ABBA. She enjoys being covered in fake blood and writing horror stories. Most of the time she just hopes that her cat is not plotting to murder her, her cat being a minion of Satan and all. They would never suspect the cat.
