    I was meditating earlier this evening.

    Thoughts came and went about past loves and partners who I've been fortunate to spend time with. Then I heard the words "How sad it is to have said hello and goodbye to a soulmate." It is sad. I believe I've said hello and goodbye to such a person. It's not a crushing sadness...

    Love And Its Bittersweet Memoir...

    Sometimes losing your love is like pouring a drink outside of your glass. You know there was something in there, you can still smell it and taste it but you can never put the same drink back unless you get another drink. The irony is, that's the only drink you want but there's...

    Falling For This Guy Broke My Heart

    It Wasn'T Our Fault.

    I hate using the word "love." Mostly because people don't really think you know what love is. I know that when my friends tell me they love someone, I don't believe them. I think they're just infatuated. And maybe that's how I feel. But it's been over four years and whatever...

    To lose someone you love is to alter your life

    forever..... The pain stops, there are new people, but the gap never closes... This hole in your heart is the shape of the one you lost, no one else can ever fit it.
