    Temptation (A Never Ending Story)

    She worked right next door me at this little boutique shop every time she would come in I would always seem to make her smile and laugh by saying little random harmless things to her. I waited several weeks to ask her for her number and when she gave it to me I waited several...

    Another World Inside My Heart

    As I was young I always had the longing inside, and I watched the sky. Always up to somewhere were the stars shot, hoping that on a wishing star I might be able to fullfill my only wish... to go somewhere else. To another world, another realm. As the stars shot around in the sky...

    In a Different World, I Am Strong, I Fight For People. I Can Suffer For Them.

    In the real world, I am weak. I cry for hours and feel terribly alone. In the real world, I am afraid of people, I can't share my feelings well, I'm confused and live in a flock of emotions that I just don't understand.   In the real world, I...

    Honestly, I prefer it

    so much, I sit in class and just daydream the whole time, and make my own story's. I do it so much, I can't even tell what's real half the time. What actualy happened and what was a dream, and they all think I'm crazy. But, whatever.

    it's so true. reality,

    even if its not terrible, is mundane and familiar. But we can make things the way we want them to be in our fantasies. Reality bites!!!

    My partner is a bad tempered domineering bully.

    We have just come through Christmas and I was walking on eggshells the whole time so as not to upset him. I'm sick of his bad moods and the way he shouts at me over nothing. His main problem is that he is insecure. He takes offence at the slightest thing and never admits he is...

    I love escaping to fantasy,

    but when you come back to reality it slaps you in the face really hard. Anime/Manga and music help me do that, but that only keeps you away from reality for such a short amount of time.

    Fantasy Vs Reality

    I believe it's good to have a fantasy world because it's (usually) something to aspire to in real life.  It's your dreams of what you wish your life to be.  Although, some fantasies are better left in the dark!!  Plus, the fantasies I wanted when I was younger aren...
