    Just Hit Me Already!

    Time and time again I've felt the lash of words.  Words meant to hurt, to wound, to damage.  It got so bad that I'd deliberately try to provoke the person yelling to just hit me.  Physical pain is something I could understand, something that went away quickly. ...

    We Know The Truth.

    The truth is that you have nothing to better to say than point out what we already know about ourselves. But it works, because it hurts. Your words hurt. They hurt so much that we restore to hurting ourselves, we become isolated, and how many of us break down so bad that they...

    I Don't Mean To Be So Cold

    I have always been blunt, and mostly it's the brutal kind even though I try my best not to sound so harsh but it really just gets the point through. I don't have to repeat myself, I do have to explain but no repeating. But sometimes even with an explanation people can only focus...

    I have a love/hate relationship with high school. It can be fun, exciting, and you also gain a lot of good experiences from HS but on another note it can be boring, depressing, drama-filled, and you can gain alot of bad experiences. I've had my fair share of both sides and most...
