    It's easier to hide behind a fake smile

    than it is to tell people how you feel. You can feel the loneliest person in a room full of people. Some days it's easier to hide away than socialise with friends and do other things. I hate the fact I have so little motivation anymore. Constantly stuck in a rut, people...

    Not being pretentious

    but rather I value my privacy... I don't want to talk about it with other people especially if they are nosy and notorious for being backstabbers, blackmailers and gossipers. But I guess maybe that's why I'm slightly depressed I don't trust others easily...

    Sometimes I wish I could cry,

    only the tears can't be found. I'm surrounded by a thousand screams, but I can't hear a single sound. I'm walking through a land of darkness, without even a flashlight. I'm hit by a thousand fists, and I've forgotten how to fight. I know that I need to breathe, but my...

    Sometimes its hard to hide my feelings,

    so I close my bedroom just to cry. At this time I just want to be left alone. No one can understand the feelings I feel. Sometimes I don't understand them myself.
