    I Can....

    But like Incubus sing- "Love hurts, but sometimes it's a good hurt, And it feels like I'm alive. Love sings, When it transcends the bad things, have a heart and try me, 'Cause without love I won't survive."

    Falling in love is like jumping off of a very

    tall building. Your brain tells you it is not a good idea but your heart tells you.... You can fly.

    It will just hurt

    Sometimes I ask why you keep on hurting me. But most of the times I ask why I’m letting you. I guess that's just how I love you. You're not mine, never mine. But I love you. And love works that way. If you love someone who does not love you back the way you want it, you will...

    Waking up every single day with

    that text that says "Good morning baby, how did you sleep princess?" and waiting hours just to see him or her. Those are the moments that everyone lives for. But, eventually they end. Being in love is the greatest feeling in the world, but to me once it ends.. It is the most...

    There is a door in my life,

    it can't be seen nor felt but it is there. I leave this door open in hopes that you will walk through it and I try to keep it open as long as I can. The more time passes the closer my door comes to becoming closed. I shut the door slowly wishing that you will stop it before it...

    How come the things that haunt us always come

    out at night? They creep out of the closet and from under the bed. It seems that as soon as the sun goes down they show up to take over our minds. With the arrival of the morning and the light, they creep back to their hiding places, out of our hearts.

    Painful Crush

    I have a huge crush on this guy, who is in the same school club as me. To be honest, I was attracted to him physically, because he's pretty good-looking. I know it's shallow to like a guy just because of his appearance, and I thought it's just gonna go away quickly. But after...

    My ex still calls me babe

    and her princess. It hurts so much to realize its all fake. It's like I was stabbed. And she even has pics of us still. It honestly kills me how much she pretends but won't let us be together. She's the reason I cry yet smile.

    I've learned that love hurts.

    It's something so fragile and can be gone just as fast as it came. The truth is Love is temporary it comes and goes, it can bring you happiness or sadness. Loving someone seems like such a beautiful thing on the outside but from the inside it hurts you never know when it might...

    Pain Is Your Friend

    It reminds us that we are still alive to face a new day and hope for something better or if things are great, we hope they stay the same. Love hurts because sometimes good things just have a price tag attached to them.
