    It feels like the last 11 months I have been

    wandering alone lost in an unknown world. My mind is in a haze with a dense fog surrounding me, everything exist yet there is nothing around me, and it's all in slow motion. I'm on the outside of myself, watching it all happen, watching as the world spins around me, and...

    I am in the ocean. The spray of salt water

    finds its way to my eyes as they close, trying to stop it. I have sharks nipping at my skin as I scream and the water turns crimson. The people on the shore are laughing and playing, watching me as i come closer to death. I can feel every razor shape tooth plunge into my skin...

    I can't breathe. I can't see any "dry land." I'm tired of going through the motions, paddling my feet, swimming w/ my arms. I want to scream but I can't find the energy to do so. I want someone to rescue me bc I really don't think I can rescue myself. I'm terrified of...

    I don't want to be sad anymore.

    I don't want to be on the verge of an emotional spill from every single moment in my life, happy or sad. I can't take the thought vomit that my brain spews at me without warning. Ive been swimming for so long and I'm still in the middle of this vast sea of heartache. My arms are...

    I am just too old. I am too old

    for all of it. I am too old to be feeling this way. I have been feeling this way for too ******* long, and I just want it to stop. So desperately I want it to stop, and I just don't know how to go about fixing myself. The misery is such a burden - so inconvenient. I can't do the...

    And She Still Doesn't Know Why She's Drowning.

    It feels like a hangover. Like a thin, grey, half-a-day where a head and heart heavy of thoughts and emotions from the night before could mill about in a satisfying sluggish monotony. Whenever the room started to spin, or the yellow-tinted paint started dripping off the walls...

    Sinking Slowly

    I feel like I'm in the middle of the Atlantic treading water, just trying to keep my head up. But my legs are getting cramped and my arms are so weak and I just want to give it up... Each wave that comes takes me under just a bit more. I gasp for that breath as I push myself up...
