    So Feed Me

    This endless yearning for reciprocated feelings is practically unbearable. I swell up with this sense of alone and have to cry sometimes to simply drain myself and start the empty "filling" all over again. I don't even know if that makes sense. It haunts me. I know...

    When You Think Like I

    You consider just about every moment not spent connecting to someone a waste - if not connecting to someone, at least to something such as music or a job. I didn't grow up in a broken home or anything and I get more than enough affection from my family but somehow despite all...
