This poem is inspired by “Before You Start Your Day” by Twenty One Pilots. It’s one of their most melancholy songs and brings me to tears just about every time I hear it. I listened to it on repeat as I wrote this poem. It requires deep introspection, allowing yourself to really feel what’s going on inside. This poem was hard to write but sometimes those are the most important ones to get out.
Sleep well, my friends.

Beautifully written and passionate.
You’re welcome 🙂
more painful than love 🙂
‘But her heart refused to live only in ink, rebelling in her chest’- This touched me beyond words. What’s better way to ease the pain but through ink!
On a side-note: I think we share same musical taste- alt-rock with pop punk influences ( ur 21 pilots reference!)
Baller! Yeah I’m an alt pop punk girl through and through! Thanks so much!
Welcome! I’m obsessed with OLD Avril Lavigne (stress on the word-old), Paramore, Tonight Alive, We are the in crowd.. Avril’s first 2 albums had empowered me a lot, so much that I had written a poem on impact of music on my poetry, coz of her song I’m With You.
