I Think I Have Wasted a Too Much Time In My Life

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 156 People

    Geez. I did it again.

    Responding to something that I thought had meaning, but upon further investigation I think it probably went over their lil' head. Oh well, it's no wonder then. Can't really empathize with something I know will be a repetitious thing of actions.

    Years Gone By

    That buzzing of discontent like bees swarming around the memory of a wilted flower. The boom of the clock hand as it marches another day into a long line of memories. The click of worry replacing anticipation of tomorrow. I need some new sounds.
