The truth is just around the corner.

“Open my heart to you!”

“Sew closed my soul.”

When forever is over:

When you just can’t get it off your mind:

If tears left scars...

Things are not always as simple as what’s shown on the surface.

Breaking the heart and the wall

“Lose yourself in me.”

Freedom: not a number

Trapped by school

“I’m complicated.”

“It’s you who makes up your own personality, not others.”

“Writing my life”

Sometimes you have to paint your own wings.

“If music is the food of love, then wires are my feeding tubes!”

“War paint — it’s time to stand my ground!”

Toxic people need love too.

People leave marks on us. Even if we can’t see them, we feel them.

Things go so much deeper if you look.

Ordinarily extraordinary

Read between the letters.

The key of trust

When life leaves you fractured, picking yourself up and rebuilding can be hard.
