    ... and Then He Left.

    We had been together 5 years. I thought we would be together forever. I gave him everything, all my love. Then he left me while I was struggling with depression. And yet, I still believe in love. I am a desperate optimist and a hopeless romantic.

    Rubble

    It's so hard to care about someone you can't help out. Even when they call you for help... I can't do this. I'm just going to cry myself to sleep now. Goodnight everyone. :'(
