    I Remain Still In That Moment While Time Passed Me By

    It's interesting how the mind works. Although I realize that years have passed, my memories remain still in that moment when I left. When I think of family, friends, or familiar places; I see them still as they were years ago. As silly as it sounds, it didn't occur to me that my...

    I miss certain things not everything

    but specific things. I miss people that actually cared and listened. I miss my stuffed animal. I miss my dog. I miss when my mom wasn't so busy and when my dad had a job. I miss when I actually had friends. I miss them.
