    Loneliness Is Killing Me...

    Place I Feel Safe

    It's like my safe zone. Nobody can cross it. My personal space, where I can relax, be myself, reflect over things. You know, just to be alone, I don't have to worry about things until morning or when I have to leave my room. Normally, on a good day, I'll isolate myself in my room...

    Most of the time i'm in my room. I'm usually on the computer looking up stuff. Sure i could be outside but i would only go walking or something. I can't play sports with my friends because i'm not good at it. I wish i could just get out of my room some more and do more things

    My Song Ends The Same

    When I come home every day from a long day in classes, and everything else, I go to my room or the den in my house and seclude myself there as I watch TV or look on the ipad. This describes everyday for me for my life now. I've never really been invited anywhere and when I do, I...
