    I Always Want What I Cant Have...

    I love you so much that it hurts me to think we wont ever be. You see I have these visions... up in my head, I lay down in bed and the thoughts race through. I close my eyes and I envision how things could be between me and you. Your my best friend, I don't ever want us to end...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    It Feels A Life Away These Days

    It's not the simplest story to tell, but then again none of the stories on here are. Her name was Megan, I met her in my last year of high school. Later on she told me that she had been trying for a year to get my attention, still laugh at how I could have over looked someone...

    Get comfortable, this won't be short. I decided in 2010 to become a teacher after years in sales. After some substitute teaching I found I have a passion for special education students so I earned a master's in special education and a severe endorsement. I work with 18-22 year...

    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...

    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.
