im ok.

If you haven’t gathered from my very depressing posts, 2019 was a bad year for me. As far as I can remember, I’ve never had a year as bad as 2019. There was so much stress, heartbreak, and long nights that a lot of it is honestly a blur. I thought about listing what happened,…

a glass box.

Have you ever felt trapped in a glass box while everyone’s success surrounds you? You’re stuck while everyone reaches for the sky. All you can do is watch. You try convincing yourself that you will be that person one day, but years go by and you realize you were lying to yourself. You are still…

the bottom of the ocean.

The bottom of the oceanIs where I reside.Dark and scaryWith creatures lurking.It gets lonely down hereWhere my only friend is a fish.I might just give in to the creatures.The creatures waiting to attack,They smell my fear.They love it.I might give them what they want.I don’t know what else to do.I’m in their habitat.I’m lost with…

It’s like I am the next graded testWaiting for the shredder’s next appearance.I’m just waiting for that student,The…

im a lover.

They all tell me I don’t need anyone to be happy, but loneliness tears me down so what other choice do I have? I need a shoulder to cry on. I need someone I know I can call at 2 am. I need someone that can make me smile by just a touch. I need…

history is useful.

One bad day can kill.It can kill your hopes and dreams.It can kill your smilesAnd replace them with frowns.But there’s something history class taught me:You can lose a battleBut still win the war.

F*CK ANXIETY

As he walks up to me, anxiety, my closest friend, says hi. Hands shake. Voice Breaks, Heart skips. Tears drip. I want to talk to him, but I can’t. Anxiety wants my attention. I really wish I could get his name, but I am distracted. I can’t do anything I want to do. I can…
