    They Say Time Heals All Wounds...

    Sometimes I want to believe it, I really do... But I'm always lost in a huge mix of emotion and too busy trying to find myself. Who am I suppose to be? They say just be yourself and people will find you, but no where does it say people will find you for a while they leave. I've...

    Falling In Obsession

    My story is not that uncommon, but surely enough, at this moment in time, it has me feeling sad, lonely and depressed from the moment I open my eyes in the morning till I lay my head down to sleep. Keeping myself busy doesn't seem to distract me as it should and I want this pain...
