      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...

    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.

    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.
