    Throes of soul a searing agony,

    Awake drenched in night-sweat, Reliving a surreal heinous nightmare, A fiend purloining innocence cherished, In perpetuity wails a tortured existence, A scar visible in every reflection, Fractured beyond any mending... I am... I am.

    I have been broken once again.

    The pieces ever smaller. Sweep them up and start again. Never whole. Missing pieces or pieces that have been shattered to dust never to fit in place again. No bandage or glue will completely hold me together. So I will sweep up the pieces and start again. And leave the shattered...

    There's just so many things wrong with me.

    I am always defensive and feel that if someone knew a lot about me, they would hurt me so I try not to have deep relationships with people but I tend to hurt the ones I love and I hate it

    I've been called paranoid recently.

    And the truth of it is I am. My life thus far has caused me to be. I wait for the bad to happen, for people to leave or disappear, I wait for the eventuality of disappointing everyone. I'm a pessimistic person with a lovely, absolutely fake smile. This world and my experience in...
