~ I could say....

I cant breathe, I cant sleep, I'm falling to pieces,

I'm lost...

But those would be unnecessary lies. Romantic cliches that could easily slip from my lips and you would accept them. Understand them. But for me, lying and survival have too often ran hand in hand. So using unnecessary, even if harmless, lies seems overdone.

So I'll say this instead....

I'm still breathing- I'm still sleeping, haunted by dreams new and old, maybe Ive never really woken up- I don't even know if I can fall to pieces, I still get burnt, but I always make it through, I don't think I really have a choice-

And as for being lost...

I may not be found, but I'm far from giving up ~
