She always fell for boys who needed saving.

Giving them kisses in the dark
to numb their headache from
drinking too much and yet
not enough to kill lust.

She was always adored by boys, who,
if given the chance, would rebuild
the world for her.

But she wanted to be the heroine
and refused to see
she needed saving, too.

Powerful. Reminds me of myself when I was blindly in love with a guy who was suicidal and depressed enough that I was never noticed and it took me a long time to realize just. THAT. "she needed saving too"

Wow! Beautiful!

This reminds me of my boyfriend and I. He's on the edge sometimes, whether it be depressed, suicidal, or just upset at himself or whatever and I'm always there to get him back on track. I've saved his life before. This may be profound, but the thing I saved him from was himself. And I've finally found a poem that sums it all up, pretty much.

I am so sorry to hear that :( He should get some professional help. He can't always rely on others, he needs to overcome this by himself, it's the only way. I was in depression as well, but sometimes life needs to shake you up so you learn to become stronger :) I wish you both all the best~ :heart:

Thanks, chica. He actually says professional help didn't do anything and that talking to me as done more for him than talking to professionals.

This is probably why I have yet to find someone. </3 I'm always wanting to save another person who's broken, but I often forget how I'm still broken myself. D;
