    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...

    The first day we met eachother i resented him.

    Empty | Numb

    So empty and numb. The inaction borne of fear and anxiety is grinding out a screech of discord that I want to KEEP AWAY. Bingeing and purging keeps it, and everything else away, and the only thing left is numbness and emptiness. Just like being in limbo, nothing...

    A Story You Probably Won't Finish Reading

    Dead inside, empty. That is me, I am that. My life goes in a cylce, from depression at dawn, to anxiety in the morning. From self-disgust at noon, to self-hate in the afternoon. From emptiness in the evening, to yet again anxiety at midnight. If i can't sleep, the anxiety turns...

    I don't date or flirt with girls. I don't enjoy life. I send most of my time behind my keyboard. I am a teenager, I should be living my life. But I am not. I'm alone and scared.
