I Sometimes Can't Talk About Whats Hurting Me

When the words just won't come out 6,379 People

    If you believe in God,

    or nothing or some other deity, I feel like it's a cruel piece in our genetic make up for us to seek companionship. It's something we have no control over, someone else wanting us. It just leaves a hole in you where someone should be but no one wants to be, and the unfilled...
