    A Night Waiting For A Star Bright

    It's already a deep night and everybody is sleeping soundlessly. I can't get away from the pain from an arrow shot right inside my heart. My heart is dripping in blood right now. No one cares to listen to my same old first love story anymore. They were fed up because I refuse to...

    A Simple Escape

    it's 2 am in the morning... and i can't sleep. i just cried over the phone, again. i guess it's easier to pretend that you are fine, yet you are not. it's easier to smile than explaining the reason behind it. i don't know what to do anymore... i don't want to be alive right now...

    Slips Through

    The darkness descends slowly stripping unending skies of all companions. weariness grips,heart hurts,silence sings as within locked horizon vows of ‘forever’ are crushed as sand. I try to reach for your hand It slips through my fingers ... the sand

    Last Night

    I lay awake thinking of you, of the times we shared, of the times we will never share again. I know I will still see you, but it won't be the same. I cried myself to sleep last night. I don't know how or when I eventually fell asleep. And then I woke up again in the middle of the...

    Absolutely This....

    It's funny as I can close my heart off at times but at night lately, I am finding that I just cry. I cry for me and for what I have become. For being such a 26 year old loser. I am hopeless and pathetic. If people knew what I was really like, I am pretty sure they would judge me...

    More Situational Than Personal

    college, honesty, surgery. all so called sure things that were supposed to set me up for happiness. all of which broke my heart and left me without motivation, faith, or hope. for me, losing those things cut deeper than any fledging romance could. for as long as i can remember, i...

    Sleep Comes More Easily Than It Returns...

    Over the last month my heart has been completely broken...maybe remade, but in what fashion I am unsure. All of my priorities have changed. I stopped sleeping, I stopped eating. Ive lost so much weight; all of my clothes are too large. This week I got sick - which probably saved...
