    What's Your Is Mine

    When your heart is breaking, mine breaks. When tears are glistening on your cheeks, you know there's a few to match on mine. When you feel that the world is against you, remember that they must be against me, too. When you feel like you're completely alone, you're not. I will...

    Part of Me

    My closest friends are like family to me.  And I love them like family.  And they are all hurting so badly right now...and there is nothing to be done about it.  Absolutely nothing will ease their pain.  And when their hearts hurt, my heart hurts.

    Sometimes I Feel Like

    I'm supergirl and I'm here to save the world. I love helping people, and listening to others' problems, but I hate hearing about their pain. I empathize with others' pain and I know for sure, if I was in their position, I would not want the pain they feel. Terror strikes us all...

    I Would Take That Too

    I have a theory about taking on more pain. It's like when it gets so cold outside that 10 more degrees either way does not even matter anymore, it's effing cold. Same with pain, at what point is there any more or less than just hurting? It never ends.

    There Must Be More

    I'd like to think I'm easy to talk to... And I suppose I am, sometimes even strangers come to me and pour their hearts out. And I don't mind listening. I just wish it made a difference. I'd love nothing more than to fix everything for my friends. Unbreak their hearts and lighten...

    I met a friend that I really cared about,

    but I guess it was never enough. I want to help her, to save her, to be with her, to be her friend. Yet I have disappointed her. I cannot be in EP anymore since I can't watch her destroy herself. I just hope she knows that I really did care about her.

    It Hurts

    When they cry, I can't help but feel their sorrow. I can't help but understand the suffering they go through. It hurts me to see them hurt. I wish the world could be kinder. They do nothing to deserve the pain. I hate it when people do that to my friends. It's just not right.
