    A dark presence is within us all,

    It's those who fear the night that make the call. The darkness covers your eyes making you fear, There are more of them; soon they'll be here. The demon asks you about your greatest regret, He likes to torment you, play with a memory you try to forget. He makes you feel used...

    I'm Scared Because Everybody Dies

    Everybody I love, everybody I care about, everyone who has ever inspired me, everyone who has ever smiled at me or lifted my spirits, everybody dies. The older I get the more I face the profound loss of everyone I care about. Either that or I face the only way not to experience...

    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...

    Blindsided, Bushwhacked When I Least Expected It

    But isn't that how it happens? What an emotional roller coaster! From the depths of despair to undeserved happiness. I don't know what I have done to meet such an awesome person but I need to continue doing it. My only fear is I will wake up and it will all have been a dream...

    I am scared to start school again.

    I dread going to school everyday because of my social anxiety and I don't know what to do about it. It's killing me inside. I just wish there was a way it could go away.

    Everyday for the past four years,

    I have been scared. It has basically just been my mom, brother, and I, and I became my mom's confidante when I was 13. I had to grow up really fast and worry about our money situation. I know that isn't why my mom tells me things, she doesn't want me to worry about it, but...

    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...

     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...

    Does anyone else ever fear of being replaced?

    Even though you know the person you're jealous of could never be with the person you're with, yet you still think about that "what if". I seriously don't even know how to say this but this feeling SUCKS
