Out on a ledge

Feeling lost in a foreign country again and I don't speak the language. I tried to eat dinner tonight but my mouth wouldn't stop trembling.
It was supposed to be better.
There's a stack in my room a foot and a half high of catalogs and letters. I sat in the corner this afternoon, staring at all the different lives I could have.
Put them in a hat, shake it up and pull one out, they told us.
I dumped 3 bottles of pills that I never took down the sink last month and I watched the sink froth and the water tint red and white.
I thought that I could do this but I just don't know anymore.

    That's beautiful, though i can't say i know what you're going through, I've found that if you fake it till you make it...it can work.
    But even if you do that I suppose you're just pulling away even more, losing yourself even more.
    It's okay if you get lost, but don't lose yourself because that's something you may never relocate.

    With love,
