    True Love Is Hard To Say

    I wish I could say what I want to say to that special someone. They say they can read me and knows what I'm thinking but they never really do. I wish I could say IT like I feel it. Or at least hope that they figure it out. I see them with another person and want to slap them but...

    Sometimes it's hard to say somethings, things like "i love you" or "i just want that you stay here", sometimes we run, sometimes we hide inside a hole and fade away... It's not just a matter of courage, it's conviction too..

    Feel Like People Don't Care....

    And that I am simply a carer for everyone else and so I don't matter. I work in daycare and also do nannying and playleading jobs so everything is very much centred around a caring role. I have no friends or partner and no close family I can confide in and it gets hard at times...

    I Don't Want Some People to Know

    My emotions are my weakness. I hate emotions, but I loev them at the same time. I don't like having them, since all they could do is hurt me. But without emotions where would we be?   Himeno
