    It Hurts

    Out Of Reach

    I'm not an unrealistic person ... in fact I'd consider myself pretty level headed and sensible.But there are one or two things that I want right now that I can't have.  No matter how much I tell myself they are unattainable it doesn't stop me wanting them. It's stupid and...

    It's a hard feeling to know that it won't happen yet knowing that loving them means you'll be there for them no matter what. I can't figure out how to shut off the pain.
