Favorite Quote:
As we grow up we learn that even the person that wasn’t supposed to ever let you down probably will. You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it gets harder every time. You’ll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You’ll fight with your best friend. You’ll blame a new love for things an old one did. You’ll cry because time is passing too fast, and you’ll eventually lose someone you love, so take many pictures, laugh too much and love like you’ve never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is one minute of happiness you’ll never get back.
-Andy Biersack

When you look at life through some one's eyes

You may expect the unexpected

But when you look through mine

The unexpected is truly


A never-ending hole

One million feet deep,





Looking above from the top of the trench

In the pitch black darkness

A little faint glow

Illuminates the first few feet of the prison.

A little gleaming hope,

Encouraging, lovely, spirited,

Yet unreachable.

That, is the unexpected.

My world, revolves around this.

A deep hole, an unattainable moment of joy

I climb, claw, grasp, hang

On the walls

To get to that light.

As I reach for the top, I can feel the warmth of the light on my sunken cheeks and cold fingertips.

I embrace.

I laugh.

I love.

I live.

Not a moment later,

A dark shadowed entity cackles it bloodcurdling laugh,

And pushes me back.

As I fall back that one million feet

Time stops.

It goes on forever.

A repeating cycle.

Irrevocably deplorable.

If you were to see my life from my eyes.

The shock and the pain I have witnessed

Is truly unexpected.
