    And Thats Why They Run...

    I cant help but just claim everything to be mine. And that's why boys don't stay around long. I'm obsessive and I cant stop myself from bothering them. Until its too late and they wont talk to me at all. Don't know when Ill learn my lesson.

    I Latch On Like a Vise

    I attach myself to everything and anything. I have an especially hard time doing this with people, but even non-human things I always find myself emotionally attaching to. I'm really emotionally attached to my computer and my guitar for one. I just feel empty if I don't have...
