Many don't get sleep at night, they overthink. I write 'em down.

I feel like socializing, and I try, but all I receive is a painful prick of a hundred thorns. There hasn't been a single day where I didn't wish for, I could cover myself, with an armor, so rigid and sturdy, that it could protect me, but it just pulls me further down. I feel like I'm afloat, but something is weighing me down. I try... I try so hard to conserve my energy, but it's hopeless. I know that I'm drowning. Drowning, not in water, in awful perceptions. With every move I make, there is an extra lunge my muscles feel. Only if I could surround myself with glass walls and suffocate myself into a sweet lie that never existed. Only if someone said that they are there for me and dint leave me sinking, gasping for breath and as the time ticks, I am nothing more than a bitter truth, alive and living to the fullest. Why didn't I enjoy what came in my line instead of not realizing how much fun I had!
