    Died Inside

    I am like a beautiful coffin Filled only with my own dead bones. I have been forgotten, neglected Rejected, and torn up. I'm told I'm beautiful, Then why do I feel so ugly? You say nothing's wrong, Then why do I feel so bad? But I am Radiant, Not just decorated, Skillfully carved...

    Fitting Words From A Song

    "Many times I've tried to tell you. Many times I've cried alone. Always I'm surprised how well you cut my feelings to the bone. Don't want to leave you really. I've invested too much time. To give you up that easy ...to the doubts that complicate your mind...." Knowing you...

    Not Done Yet.

    There are people out there who push me away from death. They want me to live. They will me to keep going, no matter how tired I am. Some of them have no idea that they are my motivation. I see their faces in the blade of my knife. I hear their voices. I can't hurt them by leaving...

    It'S Evident That I'M Broken

    The title tells it all. Battered and broken is what I am. I and broken, and I want to give up. Today was the first day I've ever gotten physical with my mom. I would never hit my mother and what I did is non excusable. I snapped, I broke, I unleashed and all the things I've...

    Love.

    I have been asking myself: If you really, truly love someone, would you ever give up on them? My answer to that is, No. You wouldn't. I had my heart broken once. It wouldn't have been so bad, except the circumstances were awful. It was very public and I was in high school...
