    It's Been 4 Years

    It is going on four years since I last saw him.  And what I then saw as fleeting feelings from a petty teenage girl I can now see was quite obviously my first love.  I still think about him almost every day, and wherever he is, I hope he knows that I pray for...

    I met this boy for the first time in 3rd grade. I liked him ever since, and many of my "friends" made sure he knew it. But he never said ANYTHING! Not once. I had other crushes after feeling ignored, but I couldn't quite get to the next step, because as soon as I felt too close...

    I Fell For It Again.

    When I was 10, I got a boyfriend. It wasnt just a crush, he was my first love. Puppy love. It was all perfect - as perfect as 10 year olds can get it. But even at 10 we caused drama. He began to like my best friend, and ended up dumping me for her. This hurt me, and he didn't...

    Wot It Feels Like to Me X

    she walks in life as she does in her head, a messed up tangle as heavy as led. The spring time starts then it stops, winter takes hold and then shes lost. The mist so black it hurts her mind, the fog so thick as though shes blind. No understanding of who she is, or why she does...
