    We were distant. For the past 2 weeks I barely

    saw her and barely messaged her. I don't want to lose her. I don't want to be alone. I'm sorry for my imperfections. If only I could tell her how much she means to me. I'm so scared. Please come back. We talked yesterday. She promises to get closer from now on. But she...

    I don't want to be this person.

    I feel bad as though I have trapped you with me in this craziness. If I knew how messed up I am, I would have warned you. I love you, I know you love me...but sometimes I wonder if I should just tell you to go find someone who will not be so much to deal with. I would be civil...

    This traffic light inside my head Is always

    green and never red. My thoughts, my dreams and all my fears They all speed past my listening ears. I close my eyes to block it out But inside my head they rush about. I take a breath to slow it down But upon my face appears a frown. My heart beats fast But my breathing slows...

    I Am Scared.

    I am scared that those honest stories that I have written are a figment of my imagination. I am scared that if I make the sacrifices today to go for what I think is true today it will not be worth it. I am scared that one day I will wake up and realise this was all just a big...

    Trusting someone with your heart

    that you've never met is probably one of the scariest things.

    I Am Scared.. For My Result.

    My 10th grade results come out on 17th May. I am scared. I know I didn't do well. I'm an average. I've been an average. I don't really fail, but I don't do well either. And I hate being this average. I don't find anyone like me. It's either topper, or failure. My whole life...

    Bravery is not about not being scared

    but rather being scared and still facing the challenge. Bravery is waking up in the morning knowing the Indians are just over the hill but putting your boots on and saddling up despite your fears. It is about accepting your fears and strength is found by facing them. I’ve...

    When I was a child people would tell me

    that one day I would be a heart breaker. I didn't really understand what it meant but it didn't sound appealing to me. I was confused as to why they had huge smiles on their face while exclaiming this. To me it seemed like a horrible concept, breaking peoples hearts. Whatever it...

    I don't really know why.

    All I know is that I have this feeling of fear with no legit reason. It dwells in my gut and chest. How do I stop being afraid, if I don't know WHY I am afraid?

    Hate

     I'm afraid of me, and honestly - afraid of living. The ever-lingering feeling of total inability to escape from being alive. Though, I feel no want for ending it, it's just a sad shame for it all to continue. The feeling is tremendously bitter, the soul is ripped apart...
