    Like a rare and dangerous drug,

    all I know is I can't get enough of you. Knowing you're there but can't ever reach you, even just to let you know how I'm really feeling, is a horrible little kind of torture. You don't have a clue, do you? Business as usual for someone without a reflection. Either you fly by...

          I tend to

    rely on song lyrics.In fact, I doubt that I've ever actually had an original thought of my own.Then again, aren't all words borrowed from general usage? Few of us utter anything truly original, or have  original thoughts.Perhaps some are more skilled in...
