    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...

    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.

    *sigh* Just Need Someone

    Seems no one is ever there for me in my dark moments or when I need literally a shoulder to cry on or people do not actually want to be there for me. I'd love for someone to take the time to get to know me, attempt to understand me and just be there. Seems everyone wants someone...

    I am ok for now. But at times

    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...

    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...

    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

    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...

    With everything going on in my life, I feel I can only turn to two people, one of them moved away. I don't feel I can go the others and have a shoulder to cry on... I feel they don't care and they would just turn around and walk away... especially with the person I have always...
