    Heatbreak

    The distance sound of a heart shattering into a million pieces. That heart, my heart-- It's the worst pain. As if no one cares for you, even if you have people there to comfort you, to support you. It doesn't feel like it. It's just cold, and lonely. Numb. It isn't easier, it's...

    The Feeling

    Heartbreak. It's more than just a pain in your chest. It's forgetting how to survive. You're not sure how to breathe except for the moments you spend sobbing. Food is out of the question, cause you know you'll just throw it back up. Sleep is uneasy as your dreams wander. It...
