    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.

    I either need to live this life

    or leave it. I've been in this marriage void for too many years. I'm married but not. I'm married so im not free to find someone to love and care about me but not married because we don't touch or talk or anything any more
