    Louder Please

    Incomplete figures that linger aroundSilently following through dim and delightThe fleeting figures that hide in ripplesThe lasting ones in the broken wallsThe moving shades in the passing cloudsWhat are you telling meLouder please , I can’t hear you

    Satisfied, Not Happy.

    On the exterior, i'm just a normal girl, And yeah, most of the time, sarcastic, mean, and self-centred. But underneath it... Well, the name of the group says it all.   People who know me would say, "But what have you got to be unhappy about? Your life is fine!"...

    Right now I am not me.

    Yesterday I wasn't me. Last week. Last month. Last year. I was never me. I was, am, and will be what my parents want of me. What my family wants of me. But someday, I'm going to fly high. And be myself. I will leave them wondering how I flew higher than they wanted me to.

    These last three years have passed

    so fast, yet so slowly. I am alive, but I don’t feel like I’m living or that my existence means anything at all. I have no friends that really care for me, or that I care for deeply. I am eighteen, in two weeks I’ll be nineteen – yet I’ve never been in love. There’s...

    Numb And Clueless

    It's almost as if my emotions don't exist anymore. When I laugh or smile the feeling isn't entirely there. My heart aches in pain, but the tears and stress just won't give in. I keep trying to get myself to feel something, anything, but it never works. My motivation to work or...
