    Don't believe the labels that life imposes upon you. Just be whatever you are.

    You don't have to fit into a box.
    When society knocks
    and demands to know your exact label
    tell them "I don't know."

    You don't have to be just one thing.
    You can be anything, everything,
    if you'd like.
    You don't have to decide
    on a single identity.
    There's too many
    anyway.

    Headspace

    I'm taking some time away
    to find a peaceful place.
    To free my mind again

    from the tangled web;
    To clean up this mess.
    And be me with full clarity.

    Letter From the Darkness

    I am the blackness swirling, concealing any and all meaning. I prefer it when you can't see because that means that I have you and you have me. We can stay this way for all eternity-
    No, don't reach out to the light. Stay here, let me cover you with my night. The brightness does damage, at least with me you don't have to see how brilliantly destructive life can be.
    Stay in bed, don't ever venture out. It's not safe out there. Here there may be plentiful misery, but
    at least in the dark you know where you are.

    Someday, you'll realize that you should have said something before it became too late. And someday, you'll be awake all night and you'll think of the moment when you could have said something but you didn't. And that moment will forever follow you, a shadow of something that isn't there anymore because you didn't speak up. Because you faltered a second too long and now it's moved on and long gone.

    When The Darkness Decides to Ramble

    What if we all want is to just be in a dream because a dream means that we don’t have to feel the pain that we are in or acknowledge its existence? But it is real. It is real. It’s the only thing that is real. The love we feel for others is fleeting, the hope we feel always fades. But the despair, the pain that plagues us, is constant only momentarily absent in the presence of fleeting hope but it remains, a consistent stain upon us, growing until it becomes us. Until it is us and we are it. What if that is all that life is? Repetition? A mistake meant to be learned from but that becomes destined to be repeated over and over again.

    Past lives pass by.
    But I won't let this one;
    I won't simply live and just deny.
    The truth hides behind the perpetuated great lie that the only point of life is to be alive and simply die.

    There is meaning but only if you seek it.

    Rambling (Hope)

    Today, I saw real light for the first time and I saw it in your eyes.
    As they looked into mine, they took the pain away and replaced it with something great.

    Relief.

    Belief.

    Rambling (Because the Past won't go)

    Is there anyone there?
    I don't want to be honest with you because it won't be fair. I can't disrupt your life like that. But I'm not doing so well. I'm drowning, in fact. Under the weight of my past. Can the dust just settle so I can pick the pieces up and move on?
    I at least want to be happy before my time on earth is gone. I'd like to be free again please. I'd like to unhappen the past, be relieved of the scars, and I'd like the happiness to actually last.

    Rambling (Things That Come Back)

    There was a time when I was free. Back then, my mind knew only peace and wasn't torn brutally. Now, there are separate shards of my psyche scattered across the galaxy.
