Favorite Quote:
"A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."

Everyone thought i was impossible to break.
I was always the solid one.
But unsinkable ships sink,
and i'm tired of being strong, of having to think.
I want to be empty, it's easier that way.
Call me crazy, I don't give a damn.
Because one day you'll see,
we all bleed.

The author's comments:
This piece was written after a really bad breakdown. I'm the one everyone thinks is so solid, the one everyone comes to for advice. i guess i never really realized it annoyed me that they assumed i was "perfect" until i broke down.
