    I'm getting lost, and I can feel it happening. He lives in Canada and I'm in the US, 2000 miles away from my boy, 2222 miles to be exact. Point six, or something, but whatever, that's just because we've talked about it. That's just it, we talk about everything, we've talked...

    Please, Come Home!

    My life is a mess. I need you most at times like these. I'm stressed, full of anger, I feel worthless. I need you to hold me in your arms and tell me everything is going to be okay. Lend me your shoulder to cry on. Help me through this difficult time. My old escape doesn't seem...

    Isnt it crazy? How you can accidentally stumble

    across someone and they can become one of,if not the, most important people/person in your life? I always swore up down, until i was blue in the face, that i would never be in a long distance relationship, that they were never with it. Crazy to think that was only a little over...

    There is no denying that loving someone without
