    Except I've already grown

    so cold that I can't, it's like the saying "like putting your hand in cold water" most nights. If you understand that quote, generally I've found those are the only people that can relate to me on that level. Most can't though It's not exactly a pop contest. Wouldn't wish it on...

    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...

    My husband doesn't make time to be with me.

    It hurts me and makes me feel so alone. I would never cheat on him I truly love him. Why doesn't he want me

    It's hard to sleep. It's hard to wake.

    It's hard to get through the day.

    I attempted suicide in late November 2014.

    I was battling clinical depression that I was born with and have no way of controlling. After the hospital my sister said "I have my $10 from when mom bribed me" I asked what she was bribed for "I didn't want to see you" I ran up to my room crying. I didn't eat for a month but...

    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.

    Every night I cry over you

    and my lost ones. I miss our fun times and even some of the bad. I've loved you more then flowers love the sun. Now it's time that I walk away even though you're the best I've ever had. You broke my heart once and for all I bet you're proud. It's time I moved on to different...

    Mi Luna

    Before I met him I wouldn't cry. No matter what , I kept the tears in. Then I met him and it was always nice to go to bed , I had no regret and always smiled. I had no more reason to cry because I had him. Then he left. I now cry every night. I curl myself up and think of him...

    I cry myself to sleep way too often.

    I am way too young to feel so much pain. I hate living way too many days. I sjould just end the pain once and for all. I am a big screw up and no one would miss me because no one even cares about me. I will always be alone and hurt by everyone.

    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...
