    If I Feel - I'm Alive

    When I was growing up I used to keep a lid on my emotions. I never let them run around, show up unexpected to ruin the party and such. Sometimes it was helpful, but sometimes it was in the way of normal interaction with people. You could never tell how I felt or what was on my...

    A Crush

    I have this crush on a guy across the street. I have and never will do anything about it and never even told anyone except my freind. It just surprises me that I am old and can still have a crush.
