Favorite Quote:
“She was ready to deny the existence of space and time rather than admit that love might not be eternal.”

Never enough.
to want
to need
to love
to please.
The burn is life.
I am nothing.
shallow swords slice the air
walking on tiptoes
dont wake the monster. dont want the monster.
kick out pull in
I ride without scream
strength is needed
is wanted
is hated.
To scream with release
would be drowning. Voice lost.
Away to run forever tomorrow
cannot come quickly to my grasp.
plotting planning hoping dreaming
keep me alive one more day
so I can want.
Eternally burdened.
Eternally lifeless.

The author's comments:
I was pretty upset with somebody in my life, and when I get really upset I write out the feelings which I can't describe in words. I hope people can connect to me and know that even though it's hard to feel like you are never enough and it causes you to feel lifeless and worthless, there are other people out there too. I think its encouraging to know that there are other people struggling with the same feeling that you are.
