    I dont feel this all the time

    but right now it is oppressive. I think I will just sit in my closet and cry till it goes away.

    I'm just feeling so down right now?

    I have this great guy who I like and he feels the same but even he can't make me laugh right now, I just want to drink and go numb just to feel happy or feel something, I don't know why I feel like this :/

    Is it weird that I have friends

    yet I feel so lonely and depressed most of the time and I can't really explain why. It's like no one really knows or understands me and I can't connect with anyone. Well... No one cares anyway.

    A close friend of 6 years deserted me

    after I told her I was in love with her. She doesn't respond to text messages or calls. I never expected her to feel the same way, but somehow telling her (while at the time may have seemed selfish), was rather cathartic for me. I don't regret it. The silence on her end has left...

    A shadow in the day, a face in the night.

    You hold me close, but sometimes I pull away. Lately I haven't. I let my guard down and opened my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my heart. Can I show you all of me without you running away? Your presence creeps up next to me quietly but suddenly, lifting me off my bed and suspended...

    I am too sensitive and too emotional.

    I care about people too much and I have so much emotions that I cannot control. I am a guy so I always get told to 'be a man' since most people expect men to be tough and confident. Never cry and positive all the time. Sadly, I don't have any of those qualities no more because...

    How Do You Define Loneliness?

    I get along pretty well with my friends.

    .. but only when I'm in certain moods. When I'm spontaneous and fun, everyone loves me and laughs and all that, but any other time I just feel useless... I contribute nothing to any other conversation... it really makes me feel boring and worthless. :( I don't talk to my friends...

    who hates being sad and getting my feelings hurt but yet I'd rather be sad than get better! I am always wanting time talk about my problems but I don't and when I do it's because I want attention! that's my main problem!
