    All I seem to do lately is cry.

    I've cried for 16 days straight cause I missed my boyfriend who was in America and then the day he came back I found out he's been on here messaging other girls and lying to me.

    When there is nothing to do,

    no reason to live, some people become reason for it. Then, this thought saves us that we are their love, their need, and a whole world to them. If we do not want to live, We have to live for them. When our souls cease to live, these people revive our dead spirits and give us...

    I know it's not true,

    that there are so many people going what I go through, but sometimes I do feel like no one understands how much I'm secretly hurting inside.

    I punch walls at night

    and hit my legs and arms (including ankles, hands, and wrists) against metal so I hurt myself and I cry in silent. Crying myself to sleep. I learned to not to cry so im not weak in front of people at 10 years old. but now all I've done is cry.

    Unfortunately, the people

    Do I Always Need To Explain?

    I try so hard to be strong for those around me. To not show how much I'm hurting. When I need to break down, I always do it alone, out of sight, out of reach. I don't want to burden anyone with my problems. But occasionally, I just break, like I did yesterday. One person, anyone...

    battle, I hear it said a lot. Perhaps that is why I shrink back into myself when I am hurting and depressed. People are not equipped to help or love. There are so many messed up, wounded people walking around it's not funny. The older I get the more I see what we are really...

    Every day I carry so much pain with me.

    I hide it, because some people abuse the knowledge. They will pour salt in the wounds that cause me pain. The people I usually trust simply give me the usual 'cheer up', or 'you'll be fine', and the best of all is 'you're a strong person'. Yes of course, but in the mean, I'm...

    Secrecy and the time being.

    cant seal a single jar. pulling me apart is the onlyway you will see my spirit ajar. Taketh thine hands and delve them into my feeling. My soul will be cleansed in the end free from every wrong doing and sentence ever said but why does love have to be hard all the time?
