"I don't think that being a strong person is about ignoring your emotions and fighting your feelings. Putting on a brave face doesn't mean you're a brave person. That's why everybody in my life knows everything that I'm going through. I can't hide anything from them. People need to realise that being open isn't the same as being weak."

Dark Shadow

Someone once told me
That little girls want to marry their fathers

I found one just like you, you know
When I was a little girl

I never knew when he would snap
I never knew if he was hot or cold

He was just like you.

And when I swirled on ice
(Not that you ever saw)
I was never afraid

I am not afraid of pain, or failure
I have had enough practice as your daughter.

You are my darkest shadow
And my deepest fears
You are screams in the dead of the night

There is too much of you in me
But without you, I am incomplete.
