A Mother’s Prayer:Unanswered

If I stayed here, something inside me would be lost forever—something I couldn’t afford to lose. It was like a vague dream, a burning, unfulfilled desire.

Dear Suicide

Hi Don’t take this personally but I have some things I really need to tell you. You are pain and suffering and all mean things that rush through neurones to absolutely and completely destroy every speck of hope. You move from trembles to tears in a dash and leave more tears behind than what I […]
