    I Just Can'T

    I miss that when I was a child I did't care what others think/say, I used to forget about limits and rules. I used to not care about how I look like. I used to be happy.

    I wish I could unlearn what I know

    and start over. Before I knew anything, everyone was safe and everything was safe from being destroyed by the darkness. I know ignorance isn't bliss, but I can get by fine by not knowing what I know. No one wants to know what it's like to lose someone, but they have to face...

    It Is Wrong, But One Can Not Help How Her Feelings Go.

    I am missing one of my dearest friends. We haven't spoken for about 1 and ½ months now. His reasons for not wanting to talk to me are quite understandable. However, I miss him. I miss him more than I've missed almost anyone in my life. It might be that in some twisted way I...

    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...
