    Freedom

    It was the hardest thing I've done. It was shoving a knife into my own stomach and gutting myself, but my pain is nothing to his. I controlled it, and even now I could take it away. I could do what I desperately want to and call him. Tell him I'm sorry, I was so confused. He'd...

    Not Really

    Their heart was already broken from the start. So I didn't actually break anything... I just broke a piece of myself out of him. He was a bad person. We weren't together. Just friends. I'm glad I don't know him anymore. It made everything worse. He can stay broken for all I care...

    My Ex.

    I recently came home from college for Thanksgiving break. It's the first time I've been home since I broke up with my ex-boyfriend who always lives here. When I broke up with him, I told him eventually we could try and talk about the problems that we had, once I had time for...

    Going On

    How do you go on.. When you realize it was a huge mistake you made. And you wish you could take it back. You wish there was a time machine to take you back. You wish you could have those moments again. Those meaningless conversations... Those akward moments..the moments where you...

    Broke A Heart

    After my first ex-boyfriend broke up with me, I was going to try to be on my own for awhile but I met someone really nice and slept with him.  But I shouldn't have because I realize now for sure that I was never in love with him, and he was really into me and I led him on...

    Yes I'm a player, I broke someone's heart

    and I liked it. I don't know what this is inside of me. I like to come into their life and leave. I like it when they cry, the saddest thing is I don't feel any pain.

    Guilty Conscience..

    It was so bad! A boy in my year had liked me for years, or so he told me anyway, he asked me out five days before Christmas and I don't think I've ever seen anyone shake so much. He was smart and nice enough so I said yes. The problem was he was over protective and controlling...

    The Masks That Monster's Wear

    I am always the monster.Never am I the hero, the knight in shining armor; the boy who ends up with the girl, the nice guy who wins out over the bully. I'm never the friend she realizes she's in love with; the guy waiting on the sidelines. That special person in her life? That isn...
