    To see your lips murmer words of sweet

    hopefulness or mere nonchalance, but have your eyes say something different, A mask is truely the most hated thing. Why hate? Because it is feared. No one wants to feel blocked out...and I would hate to see your eyes screaming under a mask. I think of no one in particular, but...

    The people experiencing the most pain tend to

    be the ones who are always trying to make others smile.

    And when I say those eyes,

    I'm referring to the eyes of abused animals. I hate seeing the pain in their eyes. It just crushes my soul.

    I wish I had the power to mend all the broken

    hearts in the world. There is so many people hurting, so many people suffering and smiling through it all. I wish I could be more helpful than I am.

    I've come across quite a few people during my

    short time on EP and I never thought I'd actually connect with some of them in a real way. This is the Internet, after all! ;) I mean sure, I knew I'd come across men and some women who maybe would spark an interest in something that I'd have to say. But never did I think I'd...

    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...

    that pain to someone I love, I would hope I could remove any pain instead.

    It's a caving heavy feeling deep in my chest,

    my throat begins to burn and my body aches to the core. Even if we never met and I happen to look up at the ground I have chosen as my path in public, and the music in my ears to silence that what is around me. I can't do this at work, I have to face it head, I provide comfort...

    I’ve seen when I look into someone’s eyes and all i can see is sadness/pain/tears! That moment when you look into their eyes and they look back at you with their eyes they know you know what they’re feeling and saying please don’t say anything! so instead you stay quiet...

    You can easily tell when someone is hurting

    just by their eyes. Eyes reveal everything, even if the mouth won't. I look into my dad's eyes and I see how hopeless and depressed he feels. His eyes help me understand how hard he works and how scared he is. I love looking into the eyes of the children I babysit because they...

    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...
