    I'm done allowing the same person to hurt me.

    I may still cry over you, think about you, miss you but I will move on in life and find someone that appreciates me for what I do and give.

    Silence And Alienation Are Soul Crushers

    I have been on such an emotional roller coaster ride today. Yesterday was my 4-month-anniversary-of-separation from my wife. I just wish that I could move on and find peace and at least start down a new path of life. I wish she would just file for divorce and let me go. She says...

    Drowning In Tears

    Emotions flying, Anger seething, Thoughts in a whirl. Running forever won't make them stop and if I give in to the urge of screaming at the top of my lungs, I fear I'll go insane. Feeling the need for a straight jacket. Fearing myself more than my nightmares. The nightmares...

    In this world there are those

    who is trying to drag you down and those who already did but still trying to take every single thing left of you. You might tell me 'What do you know, you're still a kid.' Technically it is illegal to be young and have experiences in this ****** up society.

    Being Gay....

    I have known i was gay as soon as i found out what sex was. I grew up in a pretty religious household (well, they tried) and i think it has a lot to do with this apprehension, anxiety and depression. BUT my largest gripe is how gays are treated. GAYS DO NOT CHOOSE TO BE GAY! Yes...

    Sometimes the pain outweighs my desire to live.

    The depression is so strong. I think "Why did God even make me?" I'll cry for hours in sheer despair. I feel it in the core of my being like it's something alive that wants me dead.

    Because of him. He caused me

    so much pain. I can't sleep and can't stop my tears from falling down. He lied about everything and I believed him when he said that I'm his dream. I wish him pain and sadness. I just wish, only wish to happen to him what he did to me.
