    my self hatred has soared.

    beyond a reasonable amount of questioning. put a button in front of me that would erase me and memories of me from all and i would be slamming my fist on it over and over again. i dont care for this world but am trapped here.

    Sharing A Life With Somone Is Far Different Than Them Completing Yours...

    I guess I changed when the realization that a single individual can't complete another person, finally kicked in. They can only make them better, improve them, or in the words of the lyrical "genius" that is Beyonce: upgrade them. I guess that's what they had in mind when they...

    I Had A Dream

    Today , I had a dream, That made me to scream; Sitting in the full moon night alone on the beach, Chilling weather and a complete silence prevailed all over, As if the whole nature was sleeping taking its blanket over; Then a bird captured my sight , Trying to find a place to...

    It's complicated. I was young,

    open-minded, curious, alive. I figured out I was a therian. I kind of got to know myself more, I changed. I turned into this dark, sadistic, self loathing thing because I didn't know how to feel about myself. Also, everything that's happening in the world. War, starvation...

    I Changed Many Times... For The Worst Most The Time

    I changed when she lied to us about the divorce, then changed again dressed in confusion when I found out the truth... I changed when I found the truth that drugs can distort your reality. I changed when I found out I was a drug addict, getting high wasn't for fun it was to live...

    Bittersweet Symphony

    I think I was born into this world with great cards to play with, not the best, just great. I had been given a family who loved me, some looks but not the finest. I had been given athletic genes, I have stamina, strength - but can't grow big muscles fast. I have been given a what...

    I'm A Werewolf

    Sometimes it skips a generation, like it did with my mom. My sisters all have it. In my wolf form, I have grey and silver fur. My eyes have always been a weird green color, sort of glowing. I used to only change on the full moon, but now I can change any time I want, and it's...

    Never Doubt/The Mind

    Mirror on the wall. Tell me what you see.

    Can't even recognize me? Can't blame me. Dazzling smiles turned to sour frowns. Bright eyes turned to dark stones. Can't blame me. This is what happens to good girls you see. Busy pencil in my hand turned to burning cigarette. Can't blame me. That's what happens when you play a...
