    She Was My Life

    It has only been a month since I lost the other half of my heart. I can't stop thinking about her, I can't stop crying at night, and I don't know how to go on without her. We did everything together and now when I do anything it feels wrong; it feels like I am just going through...

    She's Still Here

    I lost my Aunty to cancer several years ago, when I was just a kid, but for some reason I've always felt like I would have been really close to her had she lived.  She was the nutty writer in the family, kind of an alcoholic, but a very good writer and I think that's where I...
