My heart hurts.

Don't pull me in anymore.

Don't come back to me when this doesn't work out.

This isn't a friendship.

I don't know what it is.

Tattoo idea: a heart with tree texture and forever in the middle. So it'll be like something carved in a tree. I couldn't find a good picture to illustrate. I might photoshop something up later.

I haven't had much time to work on my list lately. I've been playing WoW a lot.

Also, people are driving me crazy. This worries me because I get irritable when my meds stop working the right way.

But I also get irritable when I don't feel well. Emotionally and physically. And since those two go hand in hand's a double whammy.

My heart still hurts. I just shouldn't let it bother me.

My cat just knocked over a stack of papers and things by rubbing her face on them. Cute. Now she's going to eat more.

Has it come to this? Where I actually blog about my cat and a broken heart.

I've been out walking.
I don't do too much talking these days.

It's just that I've been losing so long.

My archer woman's got a broken heart
I tried to jump it but it wouldn't start
And if she'd see, I'd give the very best of me
Oh, if she'd see, I'd give the very best of me.

049. Ask to hear stories from Nana and Grandma before I no longer can.

So...I've been thinking a lot. Starting last summer I got very depressed. I was home from school and I wasn't as happy as I thought I'd be. I had been miserable at school and I don't think my roommates knew, but I missed the few people I had met up there. I had a crap job where I was disrespected and earned nothing. I was taking care of my grandpa at least two days a week. Normally more.

We weren't super close, but he was a good grandpa. We thought when he died it would be a relief. Part of it was. Mostly it was just very hard. My boyfriend at the time and his family did their best to help me. I repaid him by withdrawing to myself and eventually breaking up after our anniversary. I got a new job and met new friends, but July-December 2008 is all a blur.

I jumped right into something with a new guy, became very attached and scared him off. I basically had a breakdown from January to February. I kept it very deep inside, but it was there. I moved on to a new guy. Much slower this time.

The first guy came running back apologizing and I, being so ignorant fell into it again. He ran away yet again and came back. By this time I was onto my third conquest. I woke up one morning to find he had a girlfriend listed on facebook. That was a surprise. The first guy still didn't want a girlfriend and the second said he wasn't interested anymore.

During all this I was trying to get out of my funk (which I'm still in). I was trying to go out and party. I was trying to find someone to make me feel anything at all. Somehow I ended up with the second guy again.

I fell ridiculously hard for him. Now he doesn't want a relationship. He says he was foolish and stupid to lead me on and that was "the last thing" he wanted to do.

Looking back, this has all been very fast. Five months and I've moved through 3 new guys, several times. And I've felt used and disrespected. My heart feels like it's not there anymore. My chest feels concave and hollow.

This all seems very emo, but my point is that this whole time, I've been looking for something to fill this hole that started in me more than a year ago. And nothing seems to be working.

I cried myself to sleep. I hope it doesn't happen again.
99. Go fishing.

Too bad afterwards was a horrible night.

I continue to put my whole heart into things, only to get burned.  Nothing but ash remains.

Is it sad I want to reread Twilight before I read any of the other books I have?

Yes, I know it is.

What can I say, I'm in the mood for something romantic :)
Damn you!  Stop panicking and scaring people away!

My heart kind of burns.  And I'm not sure I know why.  I mean, I know why, but I don't know if it should be happening.

Do you ever have a song that you can listen to a thousand times and not grow tired?

I've got 25.  Top 25 most played in my iTunes.  And seriously, I could listen to the same songs for hours.  And they're almost all from several years ago.  Meaning I've liked them for a long time.  I love music.

She's so smart today
She thought she could be right here again, but
She can only see, what she's afraid to see
She's now scared...

She says, I, I can't please myself
(Applause please..)
And it's you who I can't be from, unless

Empty stares, did you find it there..
Always by your side, knowing nothing well it's always right
And we've come oh so far to gain some strength and now we've pulled too hard
Now all you want is gone 
And now I'm all I've got

So he tested time
It's time he thought she'd meet again
It's his selfish mind
That gives him this empty life
He now escapes, he said "I, I can't please myself"
And it's you, your all I want, unless..

Empty stares, thought we'd go down there
Always by your side, knowing nothing, well it's always right
And we've come oh so far to gain some strength and now we've pulled to hard
And now all you want is gone
And now I'm all I've got

Wait and see, that it's not just me
It's everything.. in our lives..
I'll make some space but it's hard, 
But I can't do anything to make this wait

And if all you want is gone
And now all you want is gone
And now I'm all I've got...

Oh and ps.

Now I'm wide as the ocean
Now I bleed roses
And you are just a mark
on the map of my past
But I am a road
I wind along alone
All day until the coast

strange how it happens...

still waiting to be found...

I have a heart booboo.  How did I let this happen again?

I just have to laugh at it.  Like seriously, laugh at it.  Make it a joke.  I wrote something in my actual journal a while ago and I know its not original, but this is how it feels:

"Strange how it happens:
The heart can literally hurt
And the chest can feel hollow.
All because of a simple motion."

However corny it may be, when Bella was talking about trying to hold her ribcage together because it feels like it was falling apart...thats what mine feels like during a panic attack.  And today is gonna be a constant one.

I want a pocket knife.  If any of mine are repeats, I'm replacing it with "I want a pocket knife."  Lolz.

Jealous of pocket knifes and jealous of Death Cab, Matt Costa, and Ra Ra Riot.

But I'm going to see Jenny Lewis, possibly Jack's Mannequin and possibly Bon that would be wonderful.

What do I do when he says he's confused?  And when I'm in such a weird mood that I get paranoid and over think everything he says.  I really like him.  And I want this to work.
