    Let's Avoid The Crap

    You'll hurt me or I'll hurt you (which will hurt me by adding to my shame). Let's just enjoy one another's company for a short while and then just keep passing by. I'm sick of hurting, is all.

    i feel I can get myself together just

    when I am on my own. :( Letting people in my life often drags me down...and being a loner drags me down itself. I cant find the right balance. I either lose myself and get faceless in someone else , or manage to keep this delusional level of happiness, that sometimes backfires...

    It can be difficult to let someone in. Even if it’s only part way. Once inside I let them see all the things I hide away from what most see as me. There’s so many thoughts, emotions, raw pain, that I worry once unleashed it will overwhelm and wash them away.

    It sucks when you want to spend time to get to know a person and yet he doesn't seem to give much importance to it. I don't know if he became too comfortable with what we have.

    It hurts badly when people so close to you walk out of your life out of the blue; without uttering a single word. The unanswered questions they leave behind them never die.
