    I Suffer Inside, In Silence

    Yeah, the title pretty much says it all. I guess i'll just fill in the blanks. Basically what's happening with me is that i'm struggling with depression and my self injury addiction. (Yeah it's become an addiction.) It really sucks because now i'm like, 'Oh god now i'll never be...

    Deafening Slience

    I'd like people to think that I really don't care what others think about me...but that would be a lie. I care. People who know me know that I get paranoid about how my words and actions effect others...and I even worry that that annoys them too!...I can't win. Recently I have...

    Suffer In Deadly Silence.

    There's nothing good with suffering in silence.... there is nothing good at all.... I wished you would just listen.... But of course, for the past 2 years we've been together, the only person you'd listen to is yourself or those who can benefit you (money, grades, etc.) For you...

    The Beauty's In the Breaking..

    I'm tired of keeping up this facade.. smiling constantly is annoying, but at least it fools the people around me.  Never let out the truth, give them pretty gems of lies that convince them you're okay.  I want to just be honest about my emotions  but they would...

    6 years ago I gave you a choice "him

    or me". You chose him, I knew you would because I was leaving for who knows how long. I promised to come back and marry you as soon as I possibly could, it didn't matter. We tried to be friends from afar but as time went on our exchanges became less and less frequent. I tried...

    They Can't Say I Didn't Try

    PAIN has an element of blank;   It cannot recollect   When it began, or if there were   A day when it was not.    It has no future but itself,Its infinite realms contain   Its past, enlightened to perceive   New periods of pain.

    And Nobody Knows...

    When I was 8, my parents got divorced, and they figured it would be good to tell us a week before christmas. This seemed fair to me, because they only got married because my mom got pregnant, and I figured since it was my fault they got married, then it should hurt me when they...

    For You

    I'll suffer in silence for you. I know, you already told me, that you're sick of my bellyaching, my bitching, my moaning. You're sick of me not eating because I'm "Not Hungry". So I lied. I lied and said I was getting better, than I would eat, that I wouldn't cut anymore. Good...

    Nothing To Look Forward To

    Once again, there is nothing to look forward to in life. I don't see a reason to type out the whole situation. It won't make anything better. I can't talk about important issues with my partner, he just gets very angry if I do. I am supposed to be happy all the time when our...

    Sometimes when it’s quiet

    and I am all alone all I do is sit back in the stillness to just stop and think and survey the view. A few moments to reflect on where I am going, on where I have been,how I have travelled so far with only memories. Removed from the chaos. far away from the crowd, in rare...

    Antidote For Suffering

    The tested and valid way to bear suffering is to "Be still and know that I am God", a.k.a., “I Am Who I Am”, in “the kind of death Jesus suffered” (Psalms 46:10; John 3: 1-15; 8: 21-32; 19: 30-37) coming back full circle to the “life-giving breath” with its “tree of...
