Alone upon the wreckage, Broken hearts on either side, The dark distorted crater, Where my last hope came and died.   The darkness all around me, Not cut through by the light, My solo isolation,
I let myself fall Not so I can stand up again, But so I can stay down Down and depressed I am my worst enemy I make myself believe terrible things

I am a mess. Struggling with waging battles in my head and right in front of my own two eyes. I am everything ayone would hate to be. With all of these qualities, I can still admit that I am loved.
    Might it be better to be alone forever?
