    The Sun Also Rises

    Breakdown: A moment to lie to yourself to ease the pain, gain empathy and pity but remain the same or explore the truth, explore yourself, explore the beauty in freeing yourself..

    In The Tears

    I am not who I used to be. I don't see with the same eyes. I don't laugh with the same smile. I don't open as many doors. I don't trust many people. I don't smile for everyone. I don't make everyone happy like I used to. I've changed. I can't remember when. I've cried so many...
