    I was born wild and curious.

    A cage is no place for someone like that. I play with the fire of my own truth. I will burn for the things I love.

    When you feel the Sting of heat,

    you're supposed to remove you're hand... I usually wait for the smoke. Just to be sure.

    This is 90% untrue. Of course I've been burned

    with fire. One time my dad brother and I were lighting fire crackers and I burned my thumb, but that doesn't stop me from reaching in our fire place and touch the burning fire wood, lol

    I met a girl, we instantly clicked.

    We bonded for a long time and she eventually told me that she loved me. I loved her too. I remember her smile, her laugh and most notably her beautiful eyes. Then she broke my heart. She cheated on me, not because I was lacking in the bedroom or on an emotional level but because...

    Disaster Bound

    I'm confused. I apparently have this tendency to fall in love with the wrong people. Those that don't love me back. I have found I attract the people I love to an absurd extent. I fascinate them, I impress them. But they don't love me back. I establish close friendships with them...

    Silly girl. No one will care more about you

    than you care about them. No one in this existence, will ever care. So why do you always put yourself in these situations? I've come to the conclusion that I love being burnt. Burn /me/. Because I am the only one strong enough to stand being burnt. Everyone else will hurt so...

    but now he's phasing me out. I'd give almost anything just to hug him.

    I know this is like a figure of speech

    or whatever, but I play with actual fire, have almost caught on fire, almost caught a friend on fire, and burned myself many a times.

    Playing with fire is fun.

    I'm good at dodging the flames but sometimes I do slip up and get burned, quite badly. But it's all part of the territory and I always recuperate. It's all just a game to me.

    there's a fire,you just can't run from it.

    . you're chained to it.. you're bound to play with it.. some, you're drawn to it.. it is called an obsession.. you're obsessed with the pain it gave you.. you love the crucifying burn, you love the strength when you're healing.. you just love the way it burns you.. the...
