    Am I That Insignificant??

    I don't have the creativity nor vocabulary to make my story something worth reading.. All I can do is just tell it like it is and hopefully someone will relate.. My name is Morne Liversage but my friends call me "Bones" not because I do cool stunts and break bones, no.. But...

    Emotional pain is killing me right now.

    It hurts so bad to feel so empty. I can take a knife a broken arm but this is just awful.

    Makes It Feel Better... Makes You Forget About The Other Pain....

    That Doesn't Mean I Like It, Though

    I just seem to be able to deal with physical pain a lot more easily than emotional stuff. Cuts and scrapes, falls and tumbles, they all hurt, yeah, but I can deal with them. They go away. Scars fade. But, for me at least, emotional pain stays far, far longer. I don't know why...

    Kind of ironic, isn't it? The way we cut to stop pain. We inflict pain to forget pain. Trade emotional pain for physical pain because it's easier to take. But people don't see this...
