    Blind

    I would never tell you how much your words actually hurt me. In front of you I will argue back and fight so you do not see the knife you have plunged into my heart, but when I walk away if you just looked a little you'd see the tears building up clearly being pushed back down...

    My Heart Is Held Together By Duct Tape

    Quite simply.....My heart has been cracked, smashed, stepped on, and generally screwed with and sometimes rests upon my sleeve . It is pure and gentle and occasionally bleeds, but above all it is genuine and precious.  It is very scarred but it is strong...

    My Dream Girl

    I was so happy with my girl. Even the things I didn't like about her were the kind of things that I didn't really mind because I knew she just didn't want me doing things that were bad for me. Then one day it was over. Nothing lead up to it, no fights, no on-going arguements or...

    They say your first heartbreak is the hardest.

    You're sixteen, innocent and overwhelmed by the feelings of love and bam--he's gone. I gave him everything. The distance between us did not ever slow down the fast pace of our crazy, amazing relationship. Three months is a second in a lifetime, but when you're sixteen, it's...

    A Year Ago and I'm Nowhere Near Recovery

     I was with him for about 7 years (3 years long-distance and 4 years living together). I invested a lot of time in this relationship, in fact, I moved to the other side of the world and left everything I knew for him. I think that made me expect a lot from him, none of...

    I have. At the time I felt like my world ended.

    When the drama stopped, my tears dried, the smoke cleared, and the sun rose again on my new day, I realized that the one who broke my heart gave me the best present of all. A future without them, as they never really had my heart to begin with,
