    And so it seems that fate/destiny/whatever.

    Can't make up its mind about how my day should be. I was terrified, then happy, then content in bliss, and now I am left to question if I am being punished or if this is a sick game being played by someone who enjoys watching me lose what little sanity I had.

    The problem with time is I have to wait

    for it to pass.....while I wait I have to stay strong and and move on. Until that special time comes I have to keep trying and trying and trying.......I wish I will meet someone who will make the "moving on" easier and faster.....someone I can fall in love with.

    I'm trying to forget.

    Slowly. That feeling I got when I cut. That feeling that made me free and lose myself in myself and forget about the whole world. I miss it. But I'm trying to progress, I'm trying to forget. Slowly.
