    What Now?

    Erm...this is akward. I'll start from the beginning. My father passed away when I was nine, than my grandmother when I was ten, than my grandfather when I was eleven...near my birthday... Through my teens I felt as though I was living in someone else's shadow. I used to comfort...

    Belonging

    The night has deserted me and left me far behind. No darkness overtakes me. I am no longer alone because I know that you are there for me. I like this feeling of belonging.

    I want to be in a relationship.

    I don't want to feel hideous or ugly or feel rejected at all. I want to feel like someone wants to get to know me, that someone wants to be with me and love. :(

    Alone

    This pain continues to fill my heart. I want it all to just go away. I want to have someone tell me that I am strong, that they're here for ME, like I'm here for them. When will this pain go away? When I'm six feet under? Will it stop then? I don't want to be alone.  ...
