    The Past Two Nights

    I don't know how much longer I can stand this.  Two sleepless nights, every time I close my eyes I see her beautiful face and her angelic smile.  She opens her mouth and in her heavenly voice she says "I love you."  I open my eyes to find my pillow soaked in tears.

    that the relation you build is now being torn down. Everything seems to be fading now and it's a pity that only memories are left. I'm still thankful for everything, it has been a wonderful yet dangerous journey.
