    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...

    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...
