    I Don't Have The Energy

    I can't put the time and effort in searching for love. Which has made me give up on it. The concept of love makes me tired. I want it so badly, yet I can't seem to attain the love I'm looking for. I give up on [searching for] love, not love itself. If it comes my way I will try...

    Okay, I give up. I actually loved her more

    than I did with other girls, as in this was legit LOVE, not just a crush. She was my best friend, but now someone told me she might just be using me. In short, she was my best friend, but I wasn't hers...that's it, I'M DONE. **** yeah, I'm free!

    Enjoying The Music

    Better to Have Loved and Lost?

    I have been in love once in my life. I thought I was in love lots of times, every time it was always the real thing until we broke up and then I was just like 'Nah...that wasn't the real thing.' Eventually I came to believe that the 'real thing' didn't even exist. I would never...

    The Lonely

    Love is a chemical. A drug. To be loved, something about us must trigger such a reaction from our partners. And most of us does not have that quality. In the end, few people are really meant to be loved, but the people who do not carry the quality to be truly loved will at least...
