    Hard To Let Go

    I've never been able to let go of the amazing people in my life. Even though life had different plans it's always hard for me to accept. I believe in life that you meet people for a reason and when it's their time to move on then it's been fulfilled. I have taken away so many...

    A Good Thing.

    There are a lot of people in my past that I miss. My first kiss, my second mother, and even a best friend. But all three were not good people for me. I needed to let go of all of the bad people in my life, and I did regret it for a while. But I realized that I need to move on...

    The Time Has Passed....

    When I went to high school in the mid 70's I made the best friends I'll ever have. But too much time has passed, we have all changed. what is in the past shall remain there. I love these guys, but those times have come and gone. As Lynyrd Skynrd said in their ballad, "Tuesday's...

    There Are Some Moments I Would Love To Relive

    I know every happens for a reason but I've have so much people I wish I still had apart of my life or our relationship ended smoothly. I had this ex ( that I really don't care for now) but the way things ended, all the hurt that was caused while they got over it the next day. I...

    Old Familiar Faces

    I miss a few of them. When I look behind and see all those faces, nostalgic feeling resurrects. A mix of emotion between bitterness and happiness overwhelm my heart. There is no happy goodbye. I don't nurture the past. It should only be kept as a memory. If there are words left...

    Confessions Of Nostalgia

    I am nostaligic by nature. It's not one of my finer qualities. I really sometimes wish that I could be like others in the respect that people and their attached memories are disposable. But to me, they're not. They are valuable to me, as a piece of my past, and without them...

    Stay In My Memory

    Two years ago, I met loads of people who seemed awesome at that time. We shared together, we laughed together, we lived together, and it felt so right...until conflicts arouse. I know it is normal between groups of people with different personal back rounds to experiment...

    I used to have a group of very close friends ,

    they would cheer me up on my worst days and help me get through all the bad things in life but, we were very different so little by little we stopped talking. I miss them a lot but I know that thing will never be the way they were before, we all made mistakes. I just hope...

    Old Friends

    I do have moments when I miss all of the friends I was once so close to but grew apart from. We shared many great times. But ultimately I realize that people outgrow one another for a reason, and it is best that they stay in the past. It doesn't mean I love them any less.

    there's a few good memories of her trying to be a supportive and caring mom but I left her behind almost 9 years ago as I strived to become the total opposite of her.

    I always think.. if things didn't go the way

    they went we'd all still be best friends... Buuut things happen for a reason and I'm letting loose and I honestly could care less about them because all they do is talk bad about others. Other people like me.

    I miss one of my ex best friends.

    . We always had a good time hanging out, going out clubbing, drinking, road trips etc but ever since he started taking the hardcore drug it changed everything. We don't hang out as much as before or talk. I guess it was for the best.

    Silver And Gold

    I moved a lot as a child. Well, I suppose I should say my family moved a lot, as I was not exactly involved in the decision making process. Never in one place for more than a few months. This, along with my introverted nature, led me to not make a lot of friends as a kid. I...

    One Boy.

    but it is not for me. I had great times then,but I do not especially wish to repeat them now. Similarly at university and places I have worked. I would, I suppose, like to have a chat with a couple of girls I met along the way. It would be fun x
