Favorite Quote:
"Everyone says love hurts, but that's not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Envy hurts. Everyone gets these things confused with love. But in reality, love is the only thing in this world that covers up all the pain and makes someone feel wonderful again." - unknown


A well full of tears,
Filling up as time passes
With the release of misery and
Contents of half-empty glasses.

Closer and closer
It rises to drown;
You have to keep climbing -
Try not to look down.

Beneath the depths below,
Demons reside.
You know their appearance;
They don't need to hide.

Their pull is so strong -
In whispers they call,
Enticing and urging
You to let go and fall.

Sometimes they relent -
Let you feel joy, hope, again -
Then yank you down farther,
Though you resist as hard as you can.

They trick and deceive:
One step forward, five back.
They're wearing you out
Before their final attack.

The well continues to fill,
As you struggle to climb -
Claws stretching for your limbs;
You're running out of time.
