    It's Pretty Pathetic..And I Don't Like It.

    But I STILL do it anyway.. I know I'm the only person who can change this since it's my body, my mind, my emotions. But no matter how much that logical part of my mind argues with that more stubborn part, it still couldn't change the fact that I haven't quite moved on. Looking...
