    I just want to run away.

    Drive until I break down and can't keep going anymore. I want to start another life and be another person. That wouldn't be enough though because I know I would still have my memories. I could never stop being me even if I wanted to.

    I've been married for 12 years

    and I'm not sure if I still want to be married. All I can think about is someone else from my past that I want to see again but he can't seem to find the time. Wish I could go back and not be married.
