    well, things have taken a

    rather ugly turn last night, I'm not sure if it's the end of us, but it definitely had a negative effect on a relationship that is already messed up enough. I'm honestly not sure about anything anymore, I don't understand her really but should this end, I'd say that those past...

    Realizing he's kind of an *** hole to other

    people by exploiting their weaknesses for comical effects- even willing to do it to me. Now that sucks. Not to mention he's into drugs now. Like hell, where's the leader in you I once saw, kid?

    "Best Friends" - Doesn't Mean Forever

    I wrote a poem to sum up the loss of my best friend. After 12 years of genuine friendship, her boyfriend came between us and caused an unfixable fight. He told people he wanted me out of her life and that I was a bad influence and just brought her down. I told her and she didn't...

    Best Friend To Painful Memory

    It sucks to realize that the friendship doesn't hold the same weight to everybody. Some people can have many friends they're not very close to. I can't imagine that. I can only have one or two friends at a time. To me, friendship is one of the deepest, most important, and most...
