    My Sob Story...

    It's easy to fall in to love with the guy I love. And it was easy for him to love me too. We were together for six months and then out of no where, with no reason, he breaks up with me. We shared six months of pure joy, and if anything, he loved me more. I made him literly cry...

    Yup

    Now, I'm not saying I don't believe in it anymore, because I still do, but I don't plan on falling in love any time soon.

    What Might Have Been

    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,
