    Isn'T Living With Someone Fun? (If They Are The Right Person)

    It was such a peaceful time for me. I was away from my parents, had my own place to maintain and take care of, could do whatever I wanted, and my ex was with me everyday. Being able to fall asleep every night with either your lover next to you, or knowing they will come in later...

    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...

    Unsure Why

    My teenage years right into my late 20's were awful but I sure do miss those times. I constantly ran from place to place, was rarely sober, got arrested a few times, was homeless but yeah I find myself missing those years. I guess I miss the feeling of freedom more than the times...

    The Demise of the Pinafore.

    Pinafores were such versatile useful garments for women and girls. But now they have all but passed into history.I guess part of the demise of pinafores is that women and girls don't wear dresses nearly as much as when I was growing up. And you'd look ridiculous wearing a...

    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 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.

    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...
