I Fucked It Up
I really, really, fucked it up... when I let the wrong people in. I fucked it up even more with all the suicide attempts, I didn't win. I didn't know how to deal with the turmoil my mind was in. Eating at my soul, tearing at the outer layer of my emotional skin. Consumed from the inside out ... dying within. Nobody. Not even my kin, nor Bill Withers, to 'lean on me, when I'm not strong...' Not one person could just... be my friend, or help me carry on. Seriously, broken into shards of glass on t...

Superheroes fight crime... I fight my own crime without wearing a mask. Villains will attack me with words of hate or looks of disgust, just because the costume I wear isn't the same as those that sha...

Happy Birthday Mum
F*ck the New Year... I have the same feelings of worry and fear as I did the year before. To expect the same f*cking disappointments from humanity... nothing more. Tis the season of broken promises and false hopes. Yet another reason to put yourself, so to speak, up against the proverbial ropes... in this ring of life. To be honest, I don't ever see myself, being a wife. I don't have the heart to do it to myself... the endless soul-crushing heartache and pain masked as love, like the kind I saw ...

Stand Up
Synonyms take the place of what the disaster of the word alone stands for. All negative conjunctions towards each other interfere with the slow climb up the stairway to gold. A state of mind no more r...
