    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...

    Thanks Mom

    I just got an email from my mother that her boyfriend's brother is about to die. What does she want me to do about it? I guess the logical thing would be to comfort her but when my best friend died a few months ago all she said was 'I didn't know he was that sick.' Didn't pass on...
