    It'll Be A Miracle...

    Like Grandparents

    I never had any. Not on either side. One drank herself to death, another died of emphysema, another while being treated for a rare form of leukemia and the last I am not sure. All before I was ever born. I wonder all the time what my life might have been like if they were in...

    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...

    I saw his profile online. I never realized his hair was so dark before.. Just musing here because if I try talking to him he'll just ignore me as usual. No point trying.
