    What It Takes

    I have always preferred physical pain much more than emotional pain. Not that I'm a big fan of physical pain, It's just all that emotional pain takes away from me. You can almost always heal from physical pain, but for me, emotional pain seems to always be there, on the back...

    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...

    Gah

    Emotional pain makes my brain turn into ****. My internal self slowly destroys itself like tar in lungs. alternatively if I physically feel pain it is MUCH easier to express the discomfort. If only I knew how to handle emotional pain

    God, do I?! I can handle the whipping, and the binding perfectly, but the emotional, just shreds me. Why?! I still have yet to figure out..
