    Fitting Words From A Song

    "Many times I've tried to tell you. Many times I've cried alone. Always I'm surprised how well you cut my feelings to the bone. Don't want to leave you really. I've invested too much time. To give you up that easy ...to the doubts that complicate your mind...." Knowing you...

    Love.

    I have been asking myself: If you really, truly love someone, would you ever give up on them? My answer to that is, No. You wouldn't. I had my heart broken once. It wouldn't have been so bad, except the circumstances were awful. It was very public and I was in high school...

    I seem to have given up.

    I no longer dream or plan, just going through the motions. I want my spirit back, to live, enjoy. Feeling so old.
