    I'm All Alone

    Picture perfect memories scattered all around the floor, and I wonder if I ever cross your mind, for me it happens all time. It's a 1:15 I'm a little drunk, I said I wouldnt call but I feel all alone wishing you were here with me.

    He's Everything I've Ever Known...

    My greatest experience in life has nothing to

    do with people, because people will always fail us at some point. I have had more (abundantly more) than my fair share of pain. People I have loved more than anything have wielded a sword or two in my direction, and quite accurately, I might add. Emptiness and hopelessness have...

    The Long Goodbye.

     It's been years and he's moved on completely.  I pretend I've moved on and sometimes I believe it myself, but the truth is I am stuck like the U2 song:  "stuck in a moment and I can't get out of it."  My life is passing me by.  I've turned down...

    He is always on my mind

    and it is affecting my work and other relationships. We have been apart for many, many years, but he has never left my mind for long. He teased me 2 years ago by contacting me and then he was gone again. That communication with him only made things worse. Now I find myself...
