I Am Emotionally Exhausted

    It’s 5am and I’m lying drunk watching the

    sun come up Through the half-opened blinds of the basement windows. The summer and all we’ve left behind Is just a pounding headache behind my temples, A constant hammer glancing off the innards of my skull. Your name is a dull thud when I murmur it in my brain But when I...

    Enough Is Enough

    I have been trying to hard lately to stay positive, but it just seems like life is taking every chance possible to bring me down. Every day I am faced with yet another struggle that I feel unable to handle. The stress from this builds up inside of me, and I just randomly...

    I am so tired of being

    so tired. Some days I just want to curl under my covers and never come out. Never see the sunshine again. Just lay under my duvet in the musty air and cry. Those days the hardest thing to do is let my foot touch the floor, because that means I have to stand up, put a smile...

    For the last 3 days, I have been sleepless,

    broken, crying every now and then. My eyes are tired and whenever I cry it's like there's something inside my chest. I am so tired of this misery. I lost a father last 2013, and I didn't be able to fix the gap between us before he died. I always remember him, the day I saw him...

    Emotionally dead. I have been

    for a while. I spend many days trying my hardest to zone out, especially last year. I often ask why bother. Why not just give up? The only thing that keeps me going to false hope for the future. I've considered giving up many times, but I've been too cowardly. I decide to wait...

    is reality really an awerness?

    could it be we each are lone beings and all experiences are illustrations of the subconscious mind?

    I think I finally hit my breaking point.

    I'm now at that point where if people want to actually be a part of my life, they'll make sure they talk to me and try to act like they care. I'm tired of the fake people. I'm tired of the lies. I'm just tired. I'm worn out and I'm emotionally broken. I shattered. I'm completely...

    It's crazy how much has changed

    since Christmas. I feel like my heart has been ripped out of my chest, stomped on repeatedly and then forced back in. It's ironic how the first time I fall in love, that it ends so horribly. He went away for Christmas and slept with someone else. I can't even explain how it felt...

    Emotionally. Physically.

    Mentally. Everything. I am freaking cooked. I do it to myself. Sometimes I feel like putting out fires is my only job, or preventing the onslaught of ones to come. I have to remember I'm doing this for a greater cause and that these efforts will pay off. I'm giving everything...

    At times when I become overwhelmed by emotions

    I completely detach from the world. At first it wasn't too big of an issue. But longer I'm here and more often I return, the harder it is to return back to earth. My body numbs, my head aches, I feel a pain yet my soul is detached. I have a form of amnesia, after a certain...

    and so many things have happened, unfortunately nothing on the positive end. I met you recently, and somehow when I first saw you I had no feeling. It felt as if I didn't know you. We exchanged brief hellos and that was it, until I got my **** together and spoke to you. I miss...

    Of all the things that I cannot change,

    myself is not one of them. It has taken me so long to accept that I am in control of myself, my life, and my future. I have never been good at decision making, I’m unsure if anyone is. Decisions are painful. For so long I have been unhappy, which I can blame entirely on my...

    Letting myself go means forgetting my feelings,
