    You travelled through my soul in the dark of

    I'm so broken. Shattered. I want to be held. I want to feel loved. I just want to go home. A place I've never been. I hope I don't feel this way forever. They say "fake it till you make it". But I can't fake it tonight. The words I am using aren't even enough...

    A Pain I Can't Escape.

    It hurts, knowing that you're 21 and no girl has ever fallen for you. It hurts seeing other people having luck in love that you need so desperately. It hurts seeing love & couples EVERYWHERE and being tormented by the fact that you've never felt that kind of love. It hurts when...

    No One Knows

    Nobody told me that I would hurt this much. No one told me I would fall .. fall so hard for you.... I didn't know. I held your heart in the palm of my hands. Would've gave you everything. But you just had to close the door to our love. You lost a good one!
