No Way Back by Gleechumber reviews
About suicide when you get to that place in your head where it seems like the only option, nothing can make the thought go away, no matter how good everything around you seems. Sometimes there's no way back from that frame of mind.

Classcrossed Lovers by Gleechumber reviews
This started out as a 'rich girl loves poor boy' poem, and turned into something a little darker and more like Romeo & Juliet. It's kind of funny, in a sick way.

Every Day Drops Away by Gleechumber reviews
When it comes to drugs, this is the other side of the coin. Lack of motivation, depression and paranoia.

Just Me, The Best Way To Be? by Gleechumber reviews
Written after an arguement. Sometimes it's better to be alone, because you can't get hurt that way. This is rather bitter. I'm over it now though, ha ha.

Come As You Are by Gleechumber reviews
Yes, I have shamelessly stolen a title from a Nirvana song, but this has nothing to do with Kurt's version! It's about how, when you're depressed, you tend to drag other people down with you, whether you mean to or not. I think this flows pretty well.

Fallen Princess, Broken Wings by Gleechumber reviews
It's quite hard to write a summary, but it's basically about having someone to protect you. That someone isn't always strong and perfect though. Sometimes they can be as broken as you are.
