    And I Know It

    I distance myself from people, I'm a closeted gay and it's killing me. I have trust issues and anxiety and I have been to mental hospitals, and been suicidal, cut, and have scars. They tell me that I'm not screwed up, but I am. I just can't believe it. And who wouldn't? If...

    Yesterday

    Sitting in the car with him, explaining why what he's doing is wrong. Listening to his rationalizations, his excuses. Growing tired and weary of it all. Hearing the same promises all over again and wondering how much more of this I can take. I am feeling very alone, with no one...
