    It's True........i Do

    ~ I give, & give until I get so tired & depressed. No one (but momma) has ever put my needs, wants, feelings first. Not even a little bit. It hurts that I can't seem to find a way out of the cycle. I just keep giving. If someone stops paying attention, then I give...

    I knew who you were . . . You walk by and smile, I feel warmth and fuzzy. I close my eyes and everything seems so okay. I feel like I belong, like I am important to you. I sit and listen to you tell me all the bad things, the bad person you are, why I should run. I knew you...
