    And Don't Know How to Change..

    I need to find something fulfilling. Nothing has been fulfilling for me. Nothing really sparks my interest very long...I'll get fascinated with something, then get bored with it almost as soon as I get interested in it. Same with people. I'll like them until they're boring, then...

    I suppose I’m just hoping that…

    that person, the one for me, will pop up round the corner one day and I’ll finally feel something more than the emptiness I currently do. It sort of sucks when all I look forward to is sleep… is my dreams, and even that has lost its light. I don't feel like I *need...

    I cannot recall the last time I woke up

    and didn't feel so completely empty that I wished I'd never been born. The most rewarding part of my day is the several second period between waking up and opening my eyes, where only a sub-level of consciousness exists and I swim contentedly in a cloud of pre-alertness. It's...

    My life is fake. My entire person is fake, an imitation of what I think I should be like. I think that I cry at the right times and smile and laugh at the right times but inside it echoes around me like I have, in fact, no internal organs whatsoever, merely a cavity filled only...

    the kind where you can feel the energy emptying from your eyes. The kind that rattles through your bones, to the core. I had the first dream I've remembered in years last night; It was about me and my best friend Luci, who I haven't seen in a couple years. She had this awful...

    Empty. Devoid of true love.

    Unattainable self-love. Why would anyone love me now? Worthless. Empty. No reason to live. No deities believed. Will death provide me with release? Hopeless. Empty. I have pills by my bed. I have a gun, manual unread. Even my family expects me dead! Death wish. Empty. No one...

    Sometimes the silence of loneliness is

    My mind is fading away, And there's all this empty space. My vision is clouded, With empty promises and words. My heart is broken over the swords That cut my soul into pieces. I am nothing but flesh, I am nothing. Just another autumn day, The leaves dying and falling away...
