    A Poem

    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...

    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...

    Promise

    My life has made me stronger and wiser. Pain is like exercise, it makes you tougher if you embrace it.  It makes you tired if you try to run from it. I am OK, I can love better now.  I have something to contrast love with and I know what I don't want to be. ...
