Favorite Quote:
“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.”
― Robert Frost

I feel empty inside,
My emotions have calmed.
Everything is quiet now.
How I used to like not feeling.

Now I wish for something.
Anger, pain, sadness.
To show, that I,
Am still alive.

Breathing, not feeling.
The numbness that fills me,
That surrounds me.
Is my heart’s last defense.

For I cannot deal,
With another heartbreak.
So I put up my walls,
My heart is protected, from you
