    I sat, rocking back and forth, head in my hands, the heat of my tears stinging my face. All I feel is numbness, a hole in my heart where there is nothing. Sometimes I can't even breath. I begin to forget who I am. It's been so long and instead of strengthening my self I've fallen to pieces. Broken hearts are the worst type of pain. And as tears stream down my face I do realize something. Even though I know I'm not good enough, I thought that even for a second that I was worth something to him. But I was foolish. And wrong. He doesn't care. I was nothing but a way to pass time. So deep in the woods I lean back against a tree my wall broken, my arms bloodied, my face soaked, and I can't help but think, is this really happening. It seems like a bad dream. A total nightmare. Yet with every scratch and pinch I'm reminded that it's real. And that it's life. I'm a shell of a demigod, one that doesn't deserve to even be given the chance to become a hero. One that like all the Demeter kids before me, has broken. But for them they ended it on their terms. They left everyone and everything behind. And I find myself weak. I can't even do that. I've never felt so tongue tied, just by staring into someone's eyes. Yet now I am. I'm forced to live out my days pretending everything is fine. Standing up shakily I walk down the winded forest path blood staining the green grass. Pain floods through me as I'm sent tumbling down. The last thing I see is a long stick, embellded in my left side, the empact driving it in further. Then blackness and pain, as blood spills.

    I don't like the memories because the tears come easily, and once again I break my promise to myself for this day. It's a constant battle. A war between remembering and forgetting. So true.

    This is sincerely the most truthful thing I've found. I'm at war with myself most days. I never want to forget but I constantly don't want to think about it. Forgetting is my worse fear.

1000 memories by Saving Annabel Lee. "1000 love songs! 1000 fucking goodbyes! 1000 heartbeats! 1000 fucking lies! You took my soul and dealt it like a card! Then laughed at me when you knew that times where getting hard. 1000 memories of a time i was happy and 1 day of my life when I'll feel it again."

How wonderful to find on my son Sam's Facebook page these wise words. So proud of him for knowing so much at such a young age, and for sharing this inspiration with me, and with the world. He's going to do great things.
