When nothing goes right... go left. :)


Head is hurting, back is aching
Please don't tell me that I'm faking
Hands are burning, body's cold
This pain is getting really old
Seeing memories that are not mine
Wish I had some place to hide
My throat burns, I can't see straight
I feel their grief, love and hate
Why does this happen to me?
I can't see through the misery
I become numb- what a relief
Tomorrow I relive the grief


The author's comments:
This is how I experience it. Most people (that have empathy) can't look into other people's lives but I do it without meaning to. My parents never believe me when I tell them that I'm hurting because it happens every day. Enjoy!
