    16 Hours!! :(

    The sun is just peering over the mountains. The birds are singing and the squirrels bouncing to the new day. I look at my clock. It reads 7:00 AM. But for my love the sun has set four hours ago. It's 11:00 PM and she's in her pajamas getting ready to retire for the night. We live...

    -6 Hours, And I Consider Myself Lucky

    I consider myself lucky for a few reasons, the top couple are; I feel that it's probably more difficult to be the person in the advanced timezone. The restraint from contacting someone for most of your day (because they're sleeping or whatever reason) would be an intense...

    I wish I could just disappear. Just let the one person I trust most know where I am and leave. Just get away from everyone and everything.

    Lost in some dark memories I can't escape, Dark moving figures that I can't quite shape. The thought of you makes my heart race, I have to move on - walk away in a steady pace.
