    After 2 years of chaotic passion I

    Goodbye, Perhaps, But Not Good Bye

    I've had to let go of a loved one, yes. I didn't get to say goodbye though and I wish I could at least do that now. Back then, I didn't know what to say. Though I'm not sure if I should even believe in "goodbyes" as long as death isn't involved. Truth is indeed...
