    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...
