    I feel small when I bear my soul,

    and you don't see it. I feel small when you laugh at my tears, I feel small when I sit alone in a dark room and confess my feelings on ep.

    Or Unimportant

    Sometimes, when I look around and see the sky, calm and blue above the immense amount of people rushing from place to place, it makes me realize how big and complicated the world is, and how little it would matter if I wasn't there. I sometimes feel like I'm being swallowed by...
