    I Smiled Today At Our Memories

    So I found a shoebox in my room today -- forgot what was in it and opened it up. It was filled with all the concert ticket stubs, travel plans, parking passes, little gifts, and other memories of you. I remember the day we broke up just like yesterday -- I told you how much I...

    Getting Stronger, One Day At A Time

    No matter what happened, breathe. You are here, you are alive. Breathe. The hurt and pain can go away, if you open your heart and release you anger. Breathe. The memories may last a lifetime, or you can replace them with better times. Breathe. You can have power over your...

    I tried to call my girlfriends earlier.

    ..two of them did not answer the phone and the other did not show interest in talking with me about my feelings for my ex and hand up the phone after 4 mins. It's good that I still have this place to write and express my feelings. I went on a date yesterday. This guy was very...

    I believe that the saddest thing in life,

    is caring so much for someone & then one day, u'll look in their eyes & listen to them talk & realize that they are gone. All u see infront of u is a stranger with just a known name.

    Life's Game

    Anger swells inside my chest. Rage controlled I do my best. I look at the world with a cynical eye. I can not help but laugh and wonder why. My life is nothing but a joke. How could I have sat and hoped. Sometimes I think all is lost. I played Life's Game and I Lost!
