test results and tears and teal eyeliner

by lv.slghtr | Score: 4600

i'm sitting here in the car outside of every high school gym that's got a party inside, checking my wristwatch and realizing that im late while my dad just sits in the driver's seat and cries. 
the lab tech sent the results back, i'm going to die soon and i think i don't want to hear about the rest. my friends are in there, and we listen to Gorillaz and laugh and i pretend that everything is fine. i won the lottery for deadly rare disease huh? 
hit the snooze on those tears and get me outa here and into the zebra print, cheetah print glammed out war zone of a music scene. you're crying big rhino tears and i guess that there's something about having a dying daughter that makes you look at me like that. great god-tier grief and misery await us.
split a wishbone with me and pick a star for me i tell the silent paramedic as i slip under the glycerin glow, there's a lot that you dont know.
