    Life Would Be Easier If I Didn'T Think So Much

    I wish I could just turn my brain off, just for a moment so I could sit in silence and not have a million things running through my head all at once. I cannot even focus anymore, my eyes dart from left to right, I could be staring right at you and not even see or hear you because...

    " I swear me being a brony might kill me

    someday, I saw this because what if I leave the wrong night and then someone found out then I might be beaten to death, this is probably me dramatizing but I think someone gets it"

    Right now try and recall a memory from your

    early childhood. Perhaps one of the earliest memories that you can recall so vividly that you can literally feel yourself there. Any doubt that you aren't there now is abolished with the reinforcement of any familiar smells you can recall, sounds you hear, people you remember...

    I remember, some months ago,

    I was late-night talking on the phone with a young lady I liked at the time. She asked what I was doing. She heard no music singing me to sleep, no flatscreen lulling me from TV Land to Dream Land, a strange opposite to the sleep experience she created for herself every night. I...

    They say you never know what you had

    until it's gone. Truth is you knew exactly what you had, you just thought you would never lose it, and took it for granted while you had it.

    it lets me think about what I'm writing and over think it, I don't know if people would understand if I wrote something in a certain way or if I should change it, then I become uncertain and change it, then it happens with that sentence and then I mostly give up and just delete...

    Being alone is detrimental.

    My mind replays every mistake I ever made. My mind goes back to me messing up in the school talent show in the 4th grade or to me saying the wrong thing last week. It constantly reminds me how much of a screw up I am. Which I know I'm not. But. It's hard to ignore those...

    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.

    There's nothing in the world that's worse

    knowing you're perfect for each other.... Just staying together is the hardest thing, when we seem to just end apart. I'm guessing it's time to close this chapter and just move on to the next chapter in life. Ugh.
