I Sometimes Can't Talk About Whats Hurting Me

When the words just won't come out 5,811 People

    deep in the sygian void.

    a tiny glowing spirit sits. scarred and bleeding..broken yet still shining. he reaches out from a rocky outcrop in the dark to feel the swirling maelstrom that surrounds him. a storm of thought...words and memories. words lash out and carve new bleeding wounds... useless...

    You ask me how I am, I say I'm not feeling the

    best.. im not fine. it takes so much of me to answer that in honesty. But then you ask me why.. what happened... I smile my tears away... i want to tell you that if you've just been paying attention to me or even listening to me for all the times we've talked, then maybe you...

    Emptiness

    Every day, I am feeling more and more distant with him and my reality. Last night, I walked without him with my dog. He was waaay too tired so I told him to rest. I was buried in thoughts during my stroll. Many have asked me that I needed a "strong enough reason WHY I wanted to...

    Damn it I don't want to fight.

    ..... I'm so tired of fighting. .... every time someone mentions her I get so angry because no one is worthy of talking about her to me. I don't want to lose anyone because of it but she is something no one is allowed to touch and I'd rather die them let it happen. no one can...

    I Can't

    And to be honest, I don’t want to.   I don’t want to see you, hear you or hear others speaking of you. I don’t want anything to do with you. For now.   I realize that that sounds extremely harsh, but I know no easier way to say how I feel: I, with the vocabulary I possess...

    The Words Don't Come

    I get quiet when I'm hurting...don't have a lot to say. I get lost inside my feelings and the words don't come.

    If you believe in God,

    or nothing or some other deity, I feel like it's a cruel piece in our genetic make up for us to seek companionship. It's something we have no control over, someone else wanting us. It just leaves a hole in you where someone should be but no one wants to be, and the unfilled...

    we fight so much about little things and I'm tired. there's no more "faults" or any more "blame games", both of us equally contribute to tearing each other down. we can lay in the same bed for hours just making each other angry. I'm tired. I want peace, just emotional peace and...

    It's eating me up inside.

    And I can't talk about it. I know it's my own fault too. I never should've done it. And I'm getting exactly what I deserve. My heart broken to smithereens. It took on a life of it's own and became this panther ripping me up. So now it's time to pay and it hurts. Bad.

    How can someone be this sad.

    ...I don't understand...why can't I just be happy. I try and try my best to lift my sprits up but then they just plunge right down. And the only person holding me stable is my teacher, who I will eventually have to leave anyway.

    Because

    It's not because I'm not articulate. It's not because I don't understand. And it's not because of fear. It's because sometimes discretion is the better part of valor.
