    i think so much, it makes me stupid...

    i've always seen things other people didn't, felt things, questioned things - and while that set me apart and made me horribly lonely, sometimes, i valued it because i didn't want to be another mindless individual and because it made me who i am. but there is a point where it...

    Thinking...

    Pause tick. Pause tock. The sound embraces this unfaltering clock. Ages raging forward with feral unconsciousness. Silence holding a sweet regress. Winding, monochromatic and gnashing. Each moment my madness lashing.

    They say you never know what you had

    The most painful thing is losing yourself in

    the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too. Yes, help others; but help yourself too. If there was ever a moment to follow your passion and do something that matters to you, that moment is now. Stop putting your own needs on the back burner
