Why Can't I?

I can't keep going, can't keep going on like this, they make me sick, and i get so sick of it, 
cuz they wont let me, they wont let me breath, why can't they let me be, 
why can't they let me be, why dont i know what i am, i force this      into my heart cuz its 
my only friend, my lips are sewn shut, i watch my self bleed, they push and pull and its 
killing me within

    she knows, but the surprise comes with where I'm gonna do it and when, and what kind of ring she gets :P will be nice though =) ...wasn't really into the idea of marriage before I met her anyways.

    "Hello Again Precious Alexandria!"~Whoever your talking about here dear? Again, don't let them get to you! Find a good Church dear~A good Bible~Read, attend, and learn to pray~Surround yourself with light~And, it shall swallow all of the darkness within your life whole, before you know it!!! I must be off now~But, I shall see you soon dear!~"Love Always, John!"~Bye Young Lady!:)

    This is a very powerful write. It's good to to let it out and write about how you feel. It is terrible to hurt and not be able to get it out at all. Keep writing. Glad you liked Lovers Call. Love Robin
