    College-Bound

    There's this person that I've always wished I knew better who is going off to college soon, and it's such an awful feeling!  Every time we were together, we had fun, and we had more in common than you could imagine.  He makes me smile, and now he's leaving!  Rawr...

    Tara!

    Goodbyes are bad for me. The emotional impact is bad enough but today I had to wave goodbye to the whole of one side of a National Express Coach because it had blacked out windows and I had no idea where she was sitting.  Of course I shouldn't worry about such public displays...

    Goodbye

    When you walked out the door, you walked out of my life too. You closed the door on me forever, all because you didn’t believe in us. I questioned why you left & wondered if it was because you believed I never loved you enough or was it simply because you fell out of love...

    Did socialising, 5 friends round a kitchen

    table. Usual middle age, middle class maul of cannabis and wine. Usual melee of storytelling and disinterest. The goodbyes are telling. I’m the best at it. They all drag it out with hugs kisses and it’s like it’s been forever and we’ll never do it again; me I’m just...

    Mom. We have had a good run together. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else but you for a mother, just know that. Soon I will have to say goodbye. The time is approaching for you to leave this world we know and step into the mystery. I am preparing myself, attempting to gather...

    Bye Bye Best Friend...

    I am used to being an outcast and a loner wherever I go. I don't mind it, though, because I've come to embrace my wierdness. Before I came to my international boarding school, I felt like I would never amount to anything because everyone (including my teachers) in my old school...

    Do I Have To?

    I'm not good with good-byes of the heart-breaking sort, so I try not to say anything if I'm ever in such a situation.

    Goodbye To A Neighbor

    My across the street neighbor moved away today. Although I didn't talk to them very often because they're in their 60s, today the lady said to be "good luck in life. I know you'll be successful". That just got to me that I would never see them again and it's really sad.
