    Those overwhelming and heartbreaking times

    I’ve seen when I look into someone’s eyes and all i can see is sadness/pain/tears! That moment when you look into their eyes and they look back at you with their eyes they know you know what they’re feeling and saying please don’t say anything! so instead you stay quiet...

    What is in a word? Sometimes something hurtful.

    Your heart is torn, and I caused it. There is no excuse, no alibi. All I can say is that I am sorry. Hopefully, my feelings shine through the darkness and are a beacon for you this time. My feelings for you are more real than any word. What is in a word? Sometimes an...

    I can't stand seeing people suffer.

    So, as a result, I devote all my free time (or as much as I can) to helping people who are upset or in pain and trying to help them. This has influenced my entire life. It led me to my intended career path; nursing. It also led me to go on the Internet and meet new people, to...

    Any Eyes, Really

    I dated someone once who thought revenge was natural and that most people sought it when wronged. I'm not sure if there's a part of me missing that is supposed to understand that, but I don't.  Maybe I just run away when things are bad and I don't feel justified in exacting...

    It's a caving heavy feeling deep in my chest,

    my throat begins to burn and my body aches to the core. Even if we never met and I happen to look up at the ground I have chosen as my path in public, and the music in my ears to silence that what is around me. I can't do this at work, I have to face it head, I provide comfort...

    I don't like to see people cry.

    Especially women. It's clichéd, I know, but I really want to just give some people a hug sometimes when I see them sad. Probably because when I, myself, am sad, I don't seem to have that luxury.

    I hate to see the tear slide down the slope of

    your nose. I hate to see your fingers play "windshield wiper" as the wipe away the quiet rain. I hate to see your shoulder shake but oh not to a tune. I hate the way my mother cries and I find myself crying too.

    Because I'm a naturally caring person,

    nothing hurts me more than to look into the eyes of the one I love and see her in pain, but it gives me a purpose and determination to make you happy again.

    Too bad some don't care about seeing it in mine.

    But I have learned to just smile anyway. Treasure those that do care and keep caring about others pain and trying to be there for them.

    Best friend. I love you

    so much. I saw you cry today and it killed me inside. You don't know just how beautiful you are. And anyone who turns their back on us is missing out on two amazing people. We're the strongest when we're together, and that will never change. "Til' the end babe."
