    Obstacles

    Obstacles. He says this in response to my question. I know the answer. I don't know why I need him to say it. He has just read my mind again. The third time in succession. I'm feeling off. Have run to the store so I can talk to him away from ears that don't need to hear. Off...

    Autumn That Year

    Autumn must be the most beautiful and romantic season of all, yet somehow mixes with a bit of sadness and sorrow. Whenever the word “autumn” appears, I would think about streets with yellow leaves falling, I would imagine myself walking under those streets; and I did, looking...

    Loved Him, Still Love Him!

     I remember when we met: Two kids crazy about life, he was not the full package but he was just perfect. He was crazy in his ways and lived life in an edge of thrill. We became high school sweet-hearts and after several years of wait in his behalf, we took the next step...

    Ain't That Always How It Is?

    You always want what you can't have? I had so much fun with her. We could make entire days go by just sitting around watching movies and we'd have a blast. One of the funny things, I usually have a low tolerance for 'floating' people socially but with her, I always enjoyed...

    Cant Say Who

    I've had the opportunity to get to know quite a few people on this site and its been wonderful. I've gotten close to someone who I know cant be with me ever but can care about deeply at a distance. It stinks because there is a genuineness that he shows and he doesnt realize...

    I Cry

    I cry because I love him. I can't tell him because I don't think he would understand. I don't honestly think he would care. He is with someone else, so even if he did care, it wouldn't matter. They are like together all the time. They run a business together. So I love him, and...

    Yeah - the Song Remains the Same

    Yeah - and I want him . So - why did I join this group??  Great question! I loved him  -  he didn't love me -- I let him go -- he came back -- I still see him. But I don't love him - or anyone.
