    I know that I can never have you.

    I'm not even sure things would work out between us in the end. I keep hoping that they will, but they won't. I can feel it. You've been my anchor for so long now that I don't know how to venture back into the world without you. We've shared so many firsts, so many good...

    There is something about this boy

    that draws me in. I think he is the one which I know sounds so naive. I have had a few different relationships. I have had strong feelings for other guys but those feelings do not compare to how I feel about Danny. I have had this feeling about him since I first met him. I can...

    I just need to let go of my past,

    it's always on my mind and it ****** me off. Everything is a little better now, so why am I still thinking about my horrible past?

    I've become a lot more mature this year.

    I think I just need to let go of some things to truly become a better person.

    and I'm sorry. I just need to get this out one last time. My girlfriend broke up with me about a month ago and I still can't let go. I would still do anything for her

    My Inspiration

    Music is, has, and will always be, my source of comfort and inspiration. I could not find a more befitting song for this group, than by Kenny G, one of my absolute favorite musicians. This song is the perfect ending to this most unusual day for me.

    It's Coming

    Last time I let my mum go, I couldn't stop crying. I feared her and I was far too afraid of her to tell her in person, so I called her while with my dad. My dad had talked to me before. I'd been so upset and depressed those few days, and decided that I felt extremely unsafe and...

    Too Long...Too Much

    I love him, but it's been too many times he has shown me that he is just not loyal or faithful. How many chances do you give? There comes a point where you are just allowing it, there are no real consequences, so of course it will continue. Even if it's not in person. Right now...

    After watching tv in the lounge,

    I walked over to my dorm room in hopes of relaxing on my bed. For whatever reason, something told me to look outside my window. From my room I can see people eating in the cafeteria, people in the game room and the radio station room. I looked into the game room last. Then I saw...

    I need to accept that

    even though I started developing feelings for him, he will never feel the same way. He will always want her and not me. I need to let go and move forward even though my heart is crushed. I never want to have strong feelings for a man again. I don't think I can go through...

    Giving up doesn't always mean you are weak,

    sometimes it means that you are strong enough to let go.

    It's been almost 27 years.

    ..why do you still feel that you are not enough to stick around for? Are you going to chase away a love that you know is nothing but good for you? Time to think Tink. Time to breathe and figure out wtf you are doing. I love you, Johnny; but, this is a fight you cannot win.

    If I could just let go of what happened to me

    three years ago I think I could move on in the dating community. I'm so awkward on dates now. I don't know how to react. What to say. All I remember is the abuse I went thru. All the crazy " I know your cheating texts" while I was working. All the "your screwing another guy...

    I can let you go now.

    I was surprised by how comfortable I still am around you. Just like old friends. By the end our friendship was stronger than our relationship anyway. I didn't think we'd be able to remain friends, I thought it would hurt too much because I know I'll never stop loving you. But...

    You had died. Now I can't stop thinking about it. I look up at the sky and feel it being real... Imagining a world with out you. No. I can't. Maybe it's a sign. Maybe the only way to let you go, is to let you be dead to me.
