    I have been friends with a guy

    for about three years now. I became so close to him that it got to a point where I couldn't care the thought of losing him or him not being around. All we have been this far is just close friends. The first year I knew him I had feelings for him, a crush I guess but those...

    WITHOUT you. There is a quality of lightness to

    I don't know how to move on.

    Everyone keeps telling me to. Its hard when everything I do and see reminds me of him. I can't find any other man attractive. I've been trying to talk to other guys but I still get so sad. Just looking at any other guy reminds me of him. All I see is his face. I still feel like...

    The Choice Between Two Worlds.

    Six or seven months ago, I "lost" my virginity. It's funny because I don't even know what the day was. I had never had a boyfriend before, or even dated, so I wasn't really expecting it to happen that way... one night I'm experiencing my first kiss, and the next I'm having sex. D...

    So I burned a lot of bridges recently with

    friends and an ex and the thing is that last night I had a dream that my ex apologized to me and it was so weird. I woke up and felt at peace, but then I realized that that would never happen in reality and that it didn't happen in real life and I feel unhappy about it.

    Memories

    i'm tired, of missing you memories cloak me with insomnia. stain me with melancholia. and my eyes burn deep, remembering you. but I will forget not because beneath the cavernous wounds that will become magnificent scars [of you] is a beauty that lingers, lives, shines through.

    How to move on: Fall in love with

    yourself–the whole of you, not a part of you, and fall out of love with the voices telling you that you need someone else to make you complete. You are all you need.
