    Not Intill Now

    I'm falling in love with a tortured soul. A intelligent minded man. This is also his downfall, his intelligence causes him to over-think at times. He ends up questioning himself, his purpose, his accomplishments, his true worth in this life. He tortures himself with his failures...

    Typical

    I don't know why. Maybe I just need to take care of people. Maybe people can read from my face that I understand heartbreak. Maybe, on some subconscious level, I attract tortured souls. I just know that I always seem to run into the damaged ones. Even my friends are never...

    Truly Damaged!

    Because of my dad I cannot trust men. I stay wary of all men that I meet. I feel as if they are all individually are hiding something. Whenever I get a little bit close with a guy I straight away back off, I feel like they are putting up a front just to get to me e.g. They are...

    Beautifully Damaged

    Call them the rebels, call them the bad-boys, call them the emos, call them the emotional wrecks, call them the psychos, call them whatever you like – they get me. There’s something about a “damaged” guy that just draws me. Without me even realising it, I become...

    If you're like that you have a big heart!

    Problem is it's a tough job to try mending or healing those people that have been hurt. The effort will pay off later in life.

    Damaged But Cute - Can I Survive?!?!?!

    What I didn't realize when I entered into this relationship was that he is damaged from his childhood. Once he said that - it kind of made me realize why I'm not 100% comfortable with him sometimes. He has serious trust issues and trust no one. He definitely sets the tone for our...

    I feel inadequate in my attempts to convey

    myself to him. Even though I have a passion for writing, I can't seem to find the right words to tell him what I need. Furthermore, in his ignorance, he continues to hurt me with his coldness. I love him... Even worse, all the signs line up. So I think that there is only one...

    Lol. Lmao. Because society is wrong.
