    Hate Goodbyes

    I hate having to say good bye. There's that awkward moment sometimes when you stand there and depending on who it is, you don't know what to do; hug them, shake hands, just wave? lol But I hate the moment of departing. If you're by yourself afterwards it makes you feel all...

    "goodbye" the harshest

    and most awful thing you can say to a person you care about. it pierces right through your heart. specially deep down you know that he/she will never say hello again that as time passes, little by little he will soon forget you.

    Smoke

    The silence sets in. It entered on its socks and suddenly stood there, like a specter to be touched. As soon as its presence was felt, things became different and the meanings shifted. Beauty and innocence, giving and taking changed as if there was another weight in the balance...

    Wind

    For a reason unknown I was sad all of a sudden and I felt blue as if the sky had changed. I knew that roads were parting soon, I knew it wouldn't stay since spring doesn't last longer than a season. You couldn't see this shift, this subtle new direction and I did not want to...

    They Make Me Cry

    I think goodbyes are so final. They make me cry when I'm sure the goodbye is forever. I have said too many goodbyes over my lifetime. The worst part is, usually when I say goodbye, I never get to say goodbye to them, they leave beforehand, and I'm not always meaning deaths.

    Painful

    I know I can't stand goodbyes, they are very painful, and even though I don't cry often, one thing that makes me cry are goodbyes. Yet, I believe they are necessary, in an airport, or at the cemetary. It's a sane way to move on.

    I don't goodbyes because

    that means you're going to leave me alone. Goodbye means you want to go separate ways from me… Don't say goodbye but instead say "See you next time" because it makes me feel that I'm not gonna be left alone.

    Failure

    As soon as you left I wanted you to come back. The words rising from the wells in my heart wanted to prevent you from opening the door and even more from closing it, leaving me inside in a silence that is endless like a prison of freedom and shackles alike. Those words...

    My friend and I had been friends

    for over 6 years. But when we started secondary school she changed. She wasn't her usual self anymore. She bullied me severely, I was pushed to breaking point. I don't know what I did wrong. I finally decided to stand up for myself against her. I knew I had to say goodbye to her...

    A quality I hate most about myself is that I get attached way to easily. I'm not just talking about guys but people in general. If I get close to you no matter who you are, when the time comes for the goodbye I become an emotional wreck. I'm starting to think that's why I don't...

    A Different Metaphor

    I believe feelings are so complicated and overwhelming that we never succeed to express them properly. When we say we are "in love", does it come even close to how we feel for the other person? To the mixture of highs experienced when being in their company, and the lows that...
