Do I look happy inside?
Can't you see the tears,
That just want to run down.
I stop them to look strong
And it's all because of you.
'Cos you're ignoring me,
And you won't kiss me,
And I can't take it;
And I won't take it;
If you make me feel like this.
It just won't do...

The edge of the bed was wet with tears and my cell phone sat untouched; still lit up from the numerous amounts of unwanted texts and calls that flooded the screen. I stared at the wall. I felt polluted, pale, and as though the person who had just walked out on me had taken the one thing that really truly belonged to me; and me alone.
I was raped. The blunt words still hit me like a bullet train speeding down coal mine tracks, headed to nowhere. With time the pain eventually led to me learn that the people you least expect will be there; and the experience, however difficult it is, wil

and hope for a stronger one to rise from the ashes.
I could burn all the evidence
but I could never scrub the remembrance off such unreachable walls.
With memories, you can run but never hide.
They will find you amongst the shadows;
they will cover your eyes and ears from outside distractions.
You'll spend your time in the company of those who you used to know,
of those who are nothing but ink-blot notes on shredded sheet music
(you can never seem to hear them in the right key)
of those who are nothing but grainy photographs on yellowing paper
(you can never seem to see their faces just right)

I have a secret, and as secrets go, I cannot tell a single soul. More importantly I can never tell one person, my boyfriend. Where do I begin? What really started all of this? There had to be something that triggered all of it. Something is there, buried deep down in my memory, that began all the pain. But, what is it? Somewhere along the lines a rift started to form in my heart. Now my heart is in war zone and I am trying my hardest to stay afloat in the sea of pain and emotions, but most of the time I feel myself sinking. Water fills my lungs and I go under into the darkness of the water. Sometimes I dont even get a chance to close my
