    So Many Things That I Now See...

    He Never Existed

    I fell in love with a man that never existed. My ex claims that he just listened to me and made himself into whatever interested me. I was in love with my idea of love and my ex never wanted to see me go (so he says) so he hid his true self from me to keep me around. But when the...

    It Was Horrible

    The girl I lost my virginity to and the girl I was seeing right after I emerged from a coma. They both manipulated my every thought. Not at the same time because that was 2 years apart. I guess I let them into my mind way too much.
