    So much so, I can't even cry anymore.

    No tears left at this moment, no sadness to embrace. I'm just so shocked I gave away very good years of my life. To struggle, to time, to a taker. But I am not mad at life, nor am I mad at the days I've wasted, nor will I blame the selfish taker. For it was my patient soul that...

    Honestly lately I've been wondering

    why I even have emotions or thoughts anymore because I have absolutely no-one other than God, my dad in heaven, & here to share them with. I keep hoping & praying I'll find someone, but hasn't happened yet. :-(

    It feels like someone is losing interest. I'm not sure who. It's not like before...I'm not sure what it is. Is it just me or is this the start of my fear? This friendship is supposed to be forever or are we fools to believe in such a thing. My fear of just losing someone so dear...
