    My eyes hurt from crying,

    my heart hurts from trying. I look so tired & worn out because inside I'm dying. I miss you, I need you, but I'm better off without you. Days will have to drag on longer, but eventually I will stop thinking about you. I wish I knew. I feel broken and unwanted, like it was easy...

    Whenever I'm awake at night (so most of the

    time) I feel like I'm about to break out into tears because at night my mind is full of so many thoughts and then I literally feel alot of pressure inside my head. I feel like I'm gonna cry but I never do I don't really understand it much myself so I can't really explain it..

    You would never guess

    when you are around me I'm near a panic attack, looking for the nearest exit, and often sobbing on the inside. All the while I'm sobbing on the inside the inside. The confidence you see and many say is very intimidating is really titanium wall around me.

    I Love This Quote...

    Tears are just getting harder by the second to

    stop, I don't even show them but I can just feel them on the inside of me wanting to come out all the time lately. Though I hate crying in front if people, because when I can't tell them what's wrong they worry and then I get even more upset on the inside.
