    Music Saves Me

    Whenever i feel lost or empty, i just have to plug in my ipod listen to my favorite bands and its almost like it fills a hole within me. I love music, and im not sure what kind of place the world would be without it.

    Will Anyone Ever Understand Me?

    I feel so broken and hurt. The thing about it is..... I don't know.... Why. I am pretty sensitive, naive, emotional, and insecure. I feel like a broken glass. I've been fixed, but now I'm being chipped off piece by piece. It kills me. My broken heart feels like broken lungs...
