    I Should Have Known.

    The memories, they haunt me everyday. They manifest and become something so real. Like a ghost, that visits me everyday, and reminds me of the things you've said, your smile, that gleam in your eye, and your faithless promises. I should have known. I should have listened to that...

    I should have known that giving that part of me to him, meant it was gone forever. Now, I'd love to be able to feel the anger again, but I don't think I ever will. So Be It.

    Wake up in the morning.

    Waves sound rumbling. Walking by the beach. Sun rising. Sands on my toe. Crabs racing. Dogs barking. Can't sleep because everything i own is wrong. Fall again over and over again. Impossible. There is only hope and no promises. All good things have come to an end and fade away...

    I Should Have Known.

    That given the opportunity people will always choose what is best for themselves. Even if their choice hurts other people. Even if its just as easy to choose the right thing. How can someone like me, who loves everyone, trust no one?
