    Me Too

    My best friend in the world is a boy. We've had tones of snide remarks and stuff but were just great friends. He's shared his secrets with me, including who he's got a crush on, and I've shared my crush with him. I've got him out of trouble tones of times (hint if your hitting a...

    Best Friend Is An Understatement

    He fills my face with bliss. He calms my mind with hope. He fills my heart with love. He touches my soul with faith... There is a gentle, inviting belonging within him. And I always want to be in his life. He deserves everything he could ever dream of.

    She's the first person to see me

    for who I am and love me for it anyway. We can hang out all day and just sing along to music we play over our iPhone speakers. She's kind-hearted, sees the good and bad in the world and sees it all as beautiful, and she STILL hates herself. I really don't get it.

    My best friend is a guy,

    and I have no problem saying it. Why do I need a girl best friend when every one that I've had has just kinda left my life? And I find that a guy best friend is better than a girl. I'm comfortable around him, I can be myself, and it's just fun. :)

    She's like Voltorb. She blends into the crowds.

    . hoping she doesn't get noticed or pointed out. She lashes out and runs every time someone gets too close. But the sad part is, she only self destructs in the end.
