    I Consider Myself Sentimental

      Marla described the things she became attached to as ridiculous.  I would hardly call it that; I would call it sentimental. And I think its nice to do this as long as as one does not get so attached that it effects their life in a negative way (such as not...

    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 Cling

    These are the words I use all the time as soon as friendship develops. Male or female alike. I just cling. I would tell my friends these words beforehand. They will have the curious look. And they realize later on what I mean.Like a koala bear clinging to a eucalyptus tree. Or...
