    The Endless Maze

    Feeling Hopeless to Finding Hope It was an unforgotten night in November 2008. I sat on the cold, hard kitchen floor, with my back resting on the cabinets, knees pulled to my chest, with my arms holding tightly around them. Warm tears flowed down my cheeks as I sat there...

    Lost Reality

    No one seems to understand, they believe i mean it as a metaphor. i truly feel disconnected from this world. i feel like i'm not here, this isn't my body, i'm not in control. Everything feels like i'm reviewing an old memory. Everything is surreal, so much so it is physically...
