    Worn Down

    Maybe because I sleep less than 5 hours a day, Maybe I'm just overwhelmed with all the things I have to do, Maybe it's the responsibility of those tasks not finished yet, Maybe because I don't enjoy anything I do during the day, Maybe it's the weight of forgotten dreams...

    When I see certain movies. Or certain scenes. Or stories. I haven't figured it out yet, so that's the "no reason" part. I'm sure there's a  reason though, there always is a cause. But it really feels like something gets tripped deep inside, and I start bawling for...

    It's Weird?

    Sometimes I'll cry because of things that I'm feeling or thinking that have nothing to do with whats happening around me. Like I can start crying about something that I thought because I feel like the thought makes me a bad person. Or, if I'm in a situation with someone where I...

    Sometimes I'll just be sitting just enjoying

    whatever I'm doing and within a split second I will start crying. Why? I'm not really sure. I guess maybe it's my brain telling my body to do it... cuz I don't cry often. I try to hide my true emotions thru a mask. Everyone sees me as this happy girl when inside I have stories...
