    Rise And Fall Of The Tides

    Just like the rise and fall of the ocean's tides, I have loved, and I have lost. I was only a kid when I began to feel that intense feeling of wanting forever. Forever to me I thought was what we could be. I truly felt that what we had was unconditional, ever-growing...infinite...

    Love.....At A Glimpse

    I fell in love with this boy, and he with me. We never had a chance, to get to know each other, to hold one another, to make love, never kissed, never told him how much I care, never heard him say "I love you" enough, never had a chance to make plans, to make vows, or kids. He...

    There's no sleep, no rest.

    Nights are the worst. Food seems to have lost all taste. I'm basically suffering though life. Depression is swallowing me whole. This has been going on for the last three years now and I've lost all hope of ever being just okay again. Reading books and listening to music have...

    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...

    Timeline part 4. And the story continues.

    Leave it to me to make the simplest things as complicated as any novel. After Caryn's death I continued to live and work as before. My Virgo Sun and having both Saturn and Pluto conjunct, in my first house, seemed to give me the fortitude I needed to go on with my life. I do...

    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.

    Risks

    To laugh is to risk appearing a fool. To weep is to risk appearing sentimental. To reach out for another is to risk involvement. To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self. To place your ideas, your dreams before the crowd is to risk their loss. To love is to risk not...

    I think it is time we realized this: Do not

    ever think it was wrong to love someone more than they loved you. It just means they missed something that you knew could have been special. Do not ever think you were not good enough for him; you are good enough for the one who really wants you. Sometimes things don’t work...

    Miserable
