    I cry myself to sleep

    and my husband makes no effort to comfort me. He will always say later that he cares but never enough to stay awake. He has caused me so much pain, and then leaves me to cope and grieve on my own. Always later telling me he loves me..but showing it is a different story. I feel...

    Lately it seems that

    whenever the darkness comes, I just get even more depressed and replay the pain in my head. It's like I'm being attacked by these thoughts, and it makes me physically exhausted to fight. I'm continually breaking, and I guess I shouldn't be surprised by this newer development...

    It's so hard to fall asleep

    when all you can do is pull the blankets over your head and weep over the emptiness you feel. I hate not being wrapped in his arms. Not whispering in the dark till sleep captures us. Hate rolling over to an empty bed. Eventually these thoughts just pile up till they avalanche...

    I talk to myself a lot,

    and when I'm tired, the things I talk to myself about get sad, so I cry. I've gotten good at crying silently so my parents won't ask me what I'm crying about, because there isn't always a definite reason.

    Let me cry myself to sleep in hopes I won't

    wake up the next day. Let the tears fall down my face and leave the trail they left behind. Let me cut myself a little too deep and let the scars show. Let my rage free and don't cage me no matter how much blood I spill. Let them kill me for what I am and don't cry when I'm...

    to let go. I am very different from others and some people don't really like that and try to hurt me for it. I never know if I might turn around the corner and have to run. I can usually either talk my way out of it, bluf, or fight. I try not to hurt anyone for good, just to get...

    I must admit that I've had sleep problems

    for the past few nights. I almost don't know where to start, but I'll keep this short by saying I have had the worse life lately. And although I stay in my room all day, my mind is adventuring in places of danger. I feel elderly and fragile now, as if the wisdom I have compiled...
