    Drift Apart

    It is things that happens, we all drift apart for good or bad reasons.  Like the saying goes: If its meant to be, it'll be and if not, I guess not.

    Drifting Apart

    Most friends in life are temporary, its sad but true. However, the ones that stay with you through your life are above friends, they are family. Not related by blood, but related in experience and a bond that is unseen. The temporary ones are great, they help you through times...

    Aw Man ....

    My three closest friends and I have all drifted a bit. Some of it was needed, some was ****** situations, some was outside influences getting in the group and detonating. Man, it sucks. I miss my boys! My b-day is coming up and I don't think even I am going to see you guys. The...

    Everyones Disappearing

    I'm starting to talk to some of my friends less and less...  I hate it but then I guess I can't do anything about it. I just don't like the fact that I have so little friends now.. I'm not even sure who I can still call my friends anymore..

    Can't And Won't

    I had a friend die last night. He was about fourteen years older than me, and worked for me; but he was my friend. The police found him dead in his car in Texas, as he had been sick and passed away in his sleep. It's sad, but he's in a better place now. The thing is, I need to...

    I am hanging out with this guy I used to be pretty good friends with in high school. I haven't seen him since last summer. We occasionally call or text, but not much anymore. In high school, he was a straight-edge kid who was really into BMX and photography and cooking. Then he...

    Entropy, Ignorance, Apprehension?

    There Are People I Miss

    There are people in this world that I know and love and keep very dear to my heart, But they are gone, cast to the wind, Missing me too with no 'time' to deal no time to see nobody remembers where their smiles came from until they are long gone.
