    I can sing well, dance well, run in heels and learn instruments quickly. I can sleep completely comfortably on a hard surface and fold T-shirts with one hand, cook anything that you can think of and touch my feet to the top of my head. These are some of my talents. Random...

    Running From Everybody

    I am so lonely, but I can't and don't know how to let anyone close to me.  I change jobs often because I don't develop relationships with people I work with.  I am married to a man that doesn't care that I don't communicate.  I stay busy all the time to avoid...

    It seems like it's all I can think of now-a-days. I'll be sitting in class and I'm like, "hmmm...I bet if I just get up and walk out no one will stop me. I won't even answer if they ask where I'm going. I could get on the bus too, it's totally gonna be outside in like 10 minutes...

    Obsession With The Idea Of Escape

    I'm sick. I'm sick of the world around me. Every day I see something in the media (in some form) that causes me pain. Every second of alone time I get with my mind is spent thinking of ways in which things could be different to how they are. I'm not happy with anything as it is...

    It Only Hurts More, The Longing.

    It is truly an addiction. Escaping occupies so much of my thoughts, along with the loathing. I think of going far away from people and civilization to just be......without complicating anything else or dragging anyone else down. I feel like a failure-anchor, I am not just a...
