    Meaninglessness, Emptiness

    Emptiness, it's like a base state. When I am truly alone and have no reason to be anything to anyone, all of the layers of disguise, emotion ... they just fall away, and I find that I am really ... nothing. Without any outside exertion, I fall into a state of inertia. Social...

    My Heart And Soul Have Gone Into Shock

    After so much emotional trauma, my heart and soul have finally gone into shock. I suppose that they thought it best to shut down and cool off for a while, although in the process, have left me here in this meaningless world to subsist off of my thoughts and flesh alone, coating...

    Walking Dead

    Everyday that passes I slowly feel my spirit dying. No more crying, no more pain, just empty. So many people hurt me, leave their mark and leave. Asking "why me" is pointless. Trying to understand what my role is leaves me more confused. When many things keep happening from...

    I feel like my heart isn't there anymore

    though it still has a heart beat. I feel like my blood no longer circulates through my body. I feel like everything is lost, like I'm just a shell. It's like there's a black hole where my heart is supposed to be. I'm void of any emotion, I can no longer cry, I no longer feel...

    Gun to head. Crying. Screaming.

    Arguing a subject I'm sure to win. Time slows. Hearts beat. Sirens. Turning to make an escape. I'm surrounded. Exchange of glances. Cold dried tears. I kip and hit the ground running. Chasing chasing chasing. I'm cornered. No where to run. Only one thing to do. Leave the world...

    They say its better to have loved

    and lost then never to have loved at all. However, I disagree. Cuz love gives you hope. Hope that maybe you aren't as terrible as you think you are. Hope that maybe its possible for someone as messed up as you to be happy. And then just like that, its all torn why. No...

    I had an abortion 4 days ago,

    and now I just feel empty all the time. I've locked myself and just haven't talked to my roommate or seen any of my friends, I hardly eat. I just want everything to stop, the person I was seeing hasn't talked to me since I told him I was pregnant. I feel alone.

    This emptiness inside me is becoming too big.

    It chokes me, it makes it hard to breathe. I feel like it's slowly crushing me from the inside out. I'm so scared and I'm so alone and I can't do this anymore it's killling me I can't do this anymore

    I keep having dreams about him

    and everytime I try to get close to him he disappears. I want to say something to him in the dream because I may never see him in real life. But I recall our whole past life, I was married to him. And in this life both of us fall out of relationships of every person we are with...

    I have everything I could wish

    for yet I always have this empty feeling inside. I feel like sad but I don't show it. I always hide my feelings I don't wanna come across as weak. This feeling I have just sucks and I feel like it will never go away.

    The girl in the mirror stares at herself again.

    Her eyes are dull, she just stares. Her smile is fake, because she doesn't anyone to know how she really feels. She hates herself, she hates the way she looks, the way she talks, she hates way she thinks. Her skin used to be so pretty and flawless, now it's covered in ugly scars...

    I have nothing I'm good at at all.

    I was a lazy brat my whole life, and boy is it paying off now... I feel like pure **** watching anyone do anything, knowing they've done it their whole life or at least are committed to it. I wish I at least had one obvious talent. I'm such a piece of crap... T~T

    It's like I realized that way down inside, I've always been lonely for something. But I don't know what for. It's like everybody in the world want's something. Only they never really know exactly what it is - they just keep finding out what it's not. You know how, when you turn...

    Have you ever felt like you don't know what's

    going on anymore? Like you don't care about anything anymore. You lost your motivation to do anything. You are confused about your feelings, and you don't know how to express it. You get the feeling of emptiness, and the feeling that no one is there for you. No one understands...

    "Why?" "I don't understand!

    " "Why is it like this...?" "Why does it have to be this way...?" "What's the point?" "Why am I here?" "What's the point of dying??" "What's the point of living??" I can't seem to understand the reason anymore, if there's any, it all seems so senseless to me.

    I feel so empty inside,

    I've been depressed for so long now, I don't feel anything. I'm just a breathing blob of nothing. i hope one day, I'll wake up one morning and actually like who I am. but until then, I'll just feel like an ugly self hated nothing.

    I'm the one being abused by him

    but he's telling everyone I'm the abuser. He loves to play the victim. It's what he does best. Will I ever get help? Who knows. Nobody believes me because of him. I'm alone in this battle. And everyday is like reliving a nightmare.
