    When Will I Succumb?

    I long for a moment to allow myself to feel, truly feel my emotions, to sink into the arms of someone who would let me just cry on their shoulder.  I am not allowing myself to grieve the loss of one part of my life --- instead I put on a happy face (well not truly happy...

    Needs A Shoulder

    I need a shoulder to cry on. I wouldn't cry alone, cause it would make me saddar. Sometimes, it is essential to find someone who cares about you. I don't care who it is, but I would like a shoulder.
