    A Few Times a Week

    ~ I try to think positive.... Try not to think bout the heartache I am going thru... Try not to remember 'what was'...  Try to move on even though I will never get the truth on why we can never be together.

    I'm trying, I really am.

    But reality's just so much more deeper than my dreams. I try to think positive but when I do, reality hits me and overpowers my dreams and I fail and fall into negativity again. The cycle is ongoing..forever. Nothing seems right anymore.
