why do (we) romanticise our tears?
(are) our laughs not beautiful enough?
is blood and bruising all we are (after)
in order to deserve (the) love
only (wounded) people receive?
my smile, voice (and) heartbeat
should be enough for (you).
we (are) more alive
than a human with (no) feelings
and someone who no (longer)
has hope (in) life.
I don’t need any more (pain).
