    I Want to Fix Something That I Can't

    I can fix almost anything if it's electric or made of wood or in the plumbing or in the computer or in a moter. But I can't fix extreme emotions/feelings when they get messed up. Especially if it's my fault to start with.  I wish I could fix everyone who's ...

    I want to fix YOU! I want to wipe her existence

    from your mind. I am the one who is here every day, loving you, living with you, I'm real! She is a ghost, a fantasy of your conjuring. She is not real, you have never met face-to-face, you have never held her hand, caressed her cheek, kissed her lips, smelled her essence, run...
