    The past few nights have been awful.

    People are bullies and just don't know how much a simple lie can hurt someone so much. Can I handle it? Yes. Do I want to handle it by crying? No, but that seems to be how my body wants to respond. And whenever I cry my body responds with a panic attack. I know I will be fine in...

    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.

    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.

    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...
