    Am I Dreaming Or Is It Me?

    I fall asleep to wake up to this dream. This dream of me. This dream of me falling off the track. Of things I can't take back. It's just a list of faces and known places. A heart that cannot be fixed. A mind that's on the fritz. What is this. What is this hole you've dug...

    I Do Know What It Feels Like. ...

    I do know what it feels like. I'm not there right now, but I certainly know what it feels like to not want to wake up again. Its a dark, dark, distant place and I could never wish that on anyone else. Its hard **** but you can get through it. The worse thing is it that you...

    Everybody is always so fuc*king "fine".

    But we are not. Sometimes, we are hurt and bruised and nearly completely shattered and this, sir, is not what one calls fine... No one knows what's happening and you have to wear that fake smile so you don't hurt others..

    Sadness is tears after losing a game

    or a broken bone, depression is sobs at 3 am when you're all alone. Sadness makes you blue, depression makes you numb. Sadness loses to happy, depression loses to none. Sadness is the curious neighbor, depression is the unwanted houseguest. Sadness is your hotel room, depression...

    Stuff Is Making Me Mad

    I've had issues with depression since I was 11. I eventually was put on medication when I wasn't self medicating with other things. I was forced to stay off my mood stabilizer when my mother went all nuts and threatened a lot of BS if I filled my prescription with her insurance...

    I Am Depressed

    I still haven't went to get help,

    I can't bring myself to do it. Maybe I don't actually care and want to feel this way. I don't see my future, I can't see myself doing anything "happy and productive" in the next 5-10 years if I do live. I'm useless, not really good at anything. Although there are positive sides...

    Sometimes, what we need to do to survive,

    is to believe lies what people have made, lies that we have made, things we end up believing by repeating them too much, because that makes us close our eyes and avoid reality, because reality is too cold, too hard, too empty. Who would like to face reality when it's like that...

    I woke up from my coma yesterday.

    I have been trapped in my head. Seeing the girl I pushed away for a month and a half. She was crying infront of me. On we knees begging. Her brown eyes haunting me. I can't stop the dreams. The pain. It's all back. And it's killing me. I lost all my family. None of them even...

    for most of my life. I've tried medication, the works. And it doesn't get better. I don't want to, can't ask my friends for help. I'm too worried what they'd see if they glimpsed my fractured psyche. Now I've resorted to pushing others away. Why do I keep doing this? Honestly I...
