    How do you tell a friend you need them?

    Like, how? They're busy with their own things, with their own issues, what makes me special enough to put more pressure on them? How do I tell someone that I'm just hardly holding together? How can I when they're already falling apart? Or worse, when they're all 'better' and...

    I suffer alone, carelessly destroyed by love.

    This world a passing enigma I must endure until death steals my heart. This wasn’t how I imagined my life to end, but end it has, and I am lost. I can not dream for fear of loosing you again, I can not wake as the pain would grow to eat my very soul. What’s left is emptiness...

    I have this severely nihilistic feeling that all is lost. I have no idea where I am, where I came from, where I am going, or why I am here. Nobody does. Oftentimes, I think of the allegory of the cave. Are we all in a place that is only a fragment of reality? What is reality...
