Can You Help Her?! ... Anybody??

Black clouds creep up over her cold, frostbitten heart. It seems everything she touches turns that dark shade of grey.
She can't remeber the last time she smiled. Maybe never.
She welcomes the feeling of pain, because it's better than feeling nothing at all.
Her eyes are painted black, her cheeks are tear-stained.
The cuts only help for that second. For that one second she feels all the pain ooze down her arm in the form of the sticky, red blood.
But when it's gone, she has nothing. Nothing but her tears. nothing but the pain.
But the pain is better than nothing.
When the pain subsides, her mind fills with all the nothingness that her life has become. An empty balck hole, seeming to never end.
She wants so badly to get out of this vast gulf of black that entraps her heart. She longs for something more in this life. She searches but she doesn't find. All she gets is more pain and hurt.
She asks herself every day if there is more to liffe than this, but she comes up empty handed.
Blood-curdling screams fill her ears and she realizes that it's coming from her.
She screams for someone.
Anyone
"HELP!" it's all she can sya. All she can think.
She wants it and desperately needs it.
She yearns for a way out, an escape from all the pain that she feels.

I can relate to this! You are strong and determined Jess. Keep fighting and when you fall, I'll catch you... I'm crying now. Somehow all your work makes me cry because it's so beautiful...
