    I'm Sorry Lord For The Thing I've Made It

    I have put my trust in humans for too long (year and a half), I will never be satisfied with conditional love and petty mind games. If I ever find an adult that I want to spend the rest of my life with, it will be because I remained true to myself and my beliefs. I follow Jesus...

    Best Way

    It's really the best way to put it  .  .  . for the chairman worships a sweet goddess from afar and waits with great patience along with determination for a day to come when he can bring her to the land where dragons still roam. Where the sword is still the tool of choice in...

    Sad But True

    I am single. Very single. But my heart never found its way back to me. It refuses to leave a man I once knew. It doesn't want to come home. Once it does I'm locking it in a cage so it can never get away again. It's so grounded.

    Our Wonderful Connection

    We met each other in university. I went to tell him something and he said to me: „We have phoned, haven't we?“ I was thunderstruck because my surname is such a common one. Actually the phone call was a few months ago. He couldn't mean that, but he did. From the beginning I...
