Lucy Grainger


From the heart


I need to get this off my chest, baby.

i've done my best to supress such feelings but recently theyve all just hit me like a ton of bricks.

my dress is giving way to reveal whats underneath, a mess.

i feel naked but yet not free. i wish people could see how really i'm crumbling, giving up on everything and losing myself.

i'm mumbling to myself almost everyday, when i get in bed i remember the times when i just lay in bed and let the world pass me by, the sad thing is that i couldve been on the runway ready to take off.

    Stay strong Lucy. Everyone has feelings but it's what they do about them that counts. Hopefully you have friends who will support you. Don't let your feelings get in the way of what you need to do. (Report) Reply
