    Needs A Shoulder

    I need a shoulder to cry on. I wouldn't cry alone, cause it would make me saddar. Sometimes, it is essential to find someone who cares about you. I don't care who it is, but I would like a shoulder.

    Ok I think I have only cried on two people's

    shoulders my entire life. The first person being my mother. The other person being my crazy ex girlfriend after my brother died. I was in such a state that I just broke down and she was there. She held me and I felt such a sense of comfort that I haven't felt for a long time...

    When Will I Succumb?

    I long for a moment to allow myself to feel, truly feel my emotions, to sink into the arms of someone who would let me just cry on their shoulder.  I am not allowing myself to grieve the loss of one part of my life --- instead I put on a happy face (well not truly happy...

    when something is on my mind, I really need a nice woman to have next to me and her hold me in her arms, and I cry on her until I feel better even if it is for hours... But I am dreaming in a dream world now.. No female wants me, No female loves me, No female likes me, so I...

    Every night I am just

    so sad. I scream but nobody hears me. I wave my arms but nobody sees me. I am dying and nobody is there to save me. I have so much I want to say. I have so much that I need to release. I don't know why nobody cares about me. I don't know why everyone pretends there's nothing...

    I hate judgments like 'it's not a big problem' ,

    or 'you're in a mess' or anything, I simply need someone to whom I can vent and I can trust
