    I Have No Answers.

    There is this emptiness that I cannot fill. I feel like a shell slowly collapsing in on itself and dying. It is just all hollow and empty. I feel as if I have done something that has mutilated my soul. It makes me so incomplete. This is a world of bleak grey without senses.

    The End Is Near

    I'M Full Of Emptiness.

    I remember once feeling alive yet now I have this emptiness inside me. I feel numb, cold, and dead within and it's all because of him. Maybe some of me too, but because I'm crazy for you.

    I'm Messed Up.

    I have terrible thoughts. Sometimes I wish I was being abused, or raped, so people would feel sympathy for me. I'm a sicko for thinking something so terrible, and I know this. I also wish people around me were smart enough to see me for me. Because I can't. I don't know who...
