    1 and a half year ago I was involved in an

    abusive relationship. At the time, I didn't realize it was one. So many days I felt like I deserved it and deserve to be treated like a toy that you use for a couple of days then throw away. It was normal. Nothing was wrong with that. And today I take a look back and wonder why...

    She was born, found herself in the hands of an

    unclear present. With a scar on her arm, and with a tongue that had to forget saying the word “mamma”. She left. As she was crawling, angels looked, and the great up above, smiled. Innocent eyes, and smile, that understood nothing, but some sort of living, they had no hand...

    ...at Least For the Night

    Sitting, legs crossed, back bent, arms wrapped around with my chin resting on my knee… a tight ball, rolled small, trying to become invisible. The water as hot as I can stand, stinging, beating, scalding, cleansing the pain away. I don’t believe in a god but at this...

    It's amazing how many things I survived.

    I attempted suicide various ways and didn't even reach a near point of death. I ate poison, tried choking myself, walk through a street that's always busy without looking both ways, went down a hill while riding a cruiser and jumped off to cause brain damage so I can die. It's...
