    I Needed Help For This One

      I have to let go of all my exes, one in particular. And Pablo Neruda, a man who died 10 years before I was even born had exactly the words to express how I feel. Nuff said     Tonight I can write the saddest lines. Write, for example,'The night is shattered...

    I Have Moved On Actually

    And pretty thoroughly (;P). I just haven't gotten around to the goodbye part of it yet. I know I should, my gawd, my best friend was telling me to do just get it over with months ago but I just...didn't. I think its because I suck at official goodbyes. In the past, leaving worked...

    Good-bye And Good Riddance!

    For the past three years, I've been fixated on my ex-girlfriend - something I'm not too proud of. Although I can't good-bye to my ex in person, I can good-bye to her memories, which I've taken the painful effort of erasing.

    there is so much pain in my heart.

    Trauma, loss, lies, and dead hope is inside it. How do I say goodbye to memories that is for forever? How do you move on from people whom you'd want to stay with? It's not a want anymore. It's a need to move on. A Need to let go. A need to be free.
