    Gullible

    I would never have labeled myself as gullible, but yet I was manipulated and played by a guy who I thought cared about me. Isn't hindsight a painful thing? Loking back, I should've seen how he used me and spoke about me to his friends. But I convinced myself all guys were like...

    It Was Horrible

    So Many Things That I Now See...
