"For, me, it's easy. Just close your eyes. And fly."


I trace blue,
Intertwining crossroads
As they
Ramble past
One another

I haven't slept,
Eaten or bathed
In three days straight

But this is okay.
This is freedom.

It is manageable
Because
It was given to me

It is manageable
Because
I am strong

I am strong
Because I have suffered

This is okay.

Have you ever felt like you needed to lie to yourself to make everything at least *seem* under control?

Wow. I'm glad you could relate to the poem, but make sure you take care of yourself! I'm sure you have a great mind and great talents. I can also tell that you have great potential. Remember to never sell yourself short!

I think this explains a lot about you. And I can relate to it. I think it's great. Keep writing!

Yeah I have... As much as I hate liars if I didn't lie to myself I'd be in a hospital because of a suicide attempt.
