    Bottle

    I imagine my heart, my mind, as a bottle. All my thoughts and emotions are put in. The worse, the bigger. But I shove them in anyways. I don't know how to handle them, so I hide them away. Then, once in a while, my bottle cracks. It cracks and explodes. I break down,everything...

    I've Broken A Lot Of Stuff.....

    When I'm upset it's like everything's foggy and it's so loud even if I'm alone. I can't think straight nothing works. So I end up trashing my room or kicking a hole in the wall or breaking a window. I get very violent. But I'm getting help for it now.

    Just Take 'em Away

    I really want to take those meds that numb out all of your feelings. I don't want to even be happy. I just want to be able to function with the breakdowns or the crying or the suicidal thoughts. I just want to stop being so sensitive and emotionally unstable.

    Holy Moly

    Emotions are becoming too much to handle. I recently found my birth mother online and cannot reach her, I feel like I've hit a wall at 500mph. I don't know if I want to cry, or be happy... this is not a new feeling.

    I really miss my friend. He's the only one who ever could fully understand my emotions because he's experienced them himself. And it just sucks and everything sucks.

    I think one of the most cruel actions is when someone strings another person along and plays with their emotions disregarding the pain and suffering they inflict.
