    My Friend

    Your words sing to me. Their melody is enchanting. It echoes it's sweetness in my ears. It touches my heart. And my heart listens, but is wary. For it is still hurting and uncertain. Your words of passion are mmmmmmmmmmmm...Your words stroke me. Your words caress my soft, soft...

    Heavy hearts and bloodshot eyes Lie sleepless through the night. Where no one hears her cries of pain, Pain that exists only to her. She grieves, though none have died Besides the carefree innocent she once was. She now knows real love, and with it, real pain. Though time heals...

    In Fact...

    Sometimes I feel as though I love too much. I forgive too quickly, and I love too intensely. I only set myself up to be hurt, time and time again. It's not that I never learn; I'm fully aware that by letting another person in, I'll probably end up hurt once again. But I usually...

    When you really love someone even if there are many reason to leave, you still look for the reason to stay.
