    It's A Bit Sad.

    The only place I've ever felt safe, is at school. Now that I've graduated, I don't feel safe anywhere.

    I just realized that with you ,

    for the first time in my life I felt safe. I never really thought about how important that was. You kept me safe. And now it's gone. That is why I'm broken.

    It's Such A Fragile Thing

    Through all my life's experiences I just realized that this morning. About five minutes ago, to be exact. I have been searching for safety for so many years. To feel safe in bigger chunks of time, rather than just here or there through the days. At the time I didn't put two and...

    When I Was Eight

    I haven't felt safe since I was eight years old. Everyday I feel like disaster is right around the corner...just waiting for me to let my guard down. There's a constant envelope of dread and anxiety that surrounds me and I just wish I could be free from it.

    Why Prison Is The Only Answer

    He doesn't care about me. I honestly don't think that he ever did! I thought that he just didn't realize what he was doing, how selfish he was and how much pain he caused me... NOPE! None of it was an accident, it wasn't even just him being opportunistic and capitalizing on...

    At night it's hard for me to sleep

    if I can't hear my brother in the room next to me. It helps me sleep to know that if anything were to happen I could just yell & he'd be there. It always comforts me to hear his tv quietly playing through the walls. I'm not sure how I'll be able to sleep if he's not here anymore...

    I Just Need It

    It's probably the one thing I've felt the least in my life, but probably one of the top things I crave. I hate being scared. I hate being unsure. I just want to feel safe for once, protected from the bad things that happen in the world. It sounds unrealistic, but I'd still just...

    Day and Night

    What is a person to do when a person or people are supposed to make that person safe and it isn't being done?  Where does a person go from there?
