    It hurts me so much to see people in pain.

    I just want to hold them and tell them everything is going to be alright.

    The capacity of pain

    and suffering that can be put on the human heart breaks me. I can take my own pain but it's the struggles that I see others in that tears me down day by day. There is no heartbreak like looking at the world and wishing you could take it all away and knowing that you can't...

    To feel so deeply through the depths of your

    eyes. The ups and downs, bliss and blah, at your best (first thing in the morning of course) and sick with the flu. Just wow... Sadly at this moment this nothing more than a daydream...

    Is it me or is there a lot of severely

    depressed people on EP? Perhaps it's just helpful to share that experience with others for support I suppose..

    Because I'm a naturally caring person,

    nothing hurts me more than to look into the eyes of the one I love and see her in pain, but it gives me a purpose and determination to make you happy again.

    If I could just take

    that pain in your place to see you happy and smile; that would make any pain bearable.

    What is in a word? Sometimes something hurtful.

    Your heart is torn, and I caused it. There is no excuse, no alibi. All I can say is that I am sorry. Hopefully, my feelings shine through the darkness and are a beacon for you this time. My feelings for you are more real than any word. What is in a word? Sometimes an...

    Any Eyes, Really

    I dated someone once who thought revenge was natural and that most people sought it when wronged. I'm not sure if there's a part of me missing that is supposed to understand that, but I don't.  Maybe I just run away when things are bad and I don't feel justified in exacting...

    Best friend. I love you

    so much. I saw you cry today and it killed me inside. You don't know just how beautiful you are. And anyone who turns their back on us is missing out on two amazing people. We're the strongest when we're together, and that will never change. "Til' the end babe."

    I can't stand seeing people suffer.

    So, as a result, I devote all my free time (or as much as I can) to helping people who are upset or in pain and trying to help them. This has influenced my entire life. It led me to my intended career path; nursing. It also led me to go on the Internet and meet new people, to...

    The human eye. A portal to the unknown,

    varying within each soul. But pain can both be the enemy and an ally, shadowing your every move. It follows you, a ghost, hardening any means of personality. My own eyes have darkened, a combination of deep greens and browns...such a glaze of continuous depth yet... The wall of...

    See The Pain Through My Eyes Always trying to

    I don't like to see people cry.

    Especially women. It's clichéd, I know, but I really want to just give some people a hug sometimes when I see them sad. Probably because when I, myself, am sad, I don't seem to have that luxury.

    Sometimes when he laughs they look like little

    kid eyes. Sometimes, when they look at his girlfriend or his little sister they're warm and deep. But sometimes when he's failed a test or gotten high again or relapsed, they look like the eyes of an old man, someone who's been to hell and my quite come back yet.
