    I don't know what it is about me,

    but people just institutionally turn against me for reasons I never find out, if the person ever actually knows why they hate me. Every time. I try to open up, I think that this person will be better. I want to make friends. It's not like I don't try. It seems pretty good at...

    I don't feel attractive.

    Not even a little bit. There's just certain things that keep happening, and no matter how hard I try to make myself seem attractive the same thing happens. He's doing such a good job at pretending that I'm not the issue, but I know I am. I feel a bit helpless. Purposely...

    I hate waking up every morning feeling worthless, trying to get out of bed without struggling. I hate knowing that today is just a repeat of yesterday. That I'll wake up tomorrow and continue on with nothing really changing. I just wish the pain would end. That the fear would...

    I don't want to hurt anymore. I cry every day and it's hard to remember what life used to be like.  I awake every morning to his beautiful face and am quickly reminded of your absence. He has your eyes, your smile.  I touch his cheek and wonder how it could have been, how it...

      Im not sure I would know what to do if the pain wasnt there. I try so hard not to feel it, not to let the pain take control of me, the lonliness, the emptyness, the knowing my world will never be more then it is right now. and yet,    Now the numb is wearing...

    Pain pain pain pain pain.

    That's all I feel is pain. I want to scream it hurts so much. Pain inside. Driving me crazy. I want others to see my pain. Know my pain, but I can't tell them. Sometimes I wonder if the only way I can let them know is by showing them. Then when the pain is gone, I'm numb. So...

    Deafening Bliss

    Alone with my thoughts echos run scared shadow beneath my feet falling rain sear my eyes as I look to heaven for an answer that will never come. Painfully, but with a smile I grow deaf from the silence for I know it will be over soon. Gone.

    I Don't...

    When you are Born you are crying. Eventually you stop crying, than you die, and others will be crying. For me, if I were to die, No one would cry. For me, I am not able to stop crying. The pain is intense, I am slowly disapearing. I just don't want to hurt anymore.
