    It Would Be Nice

    Being Alone

    If nothing else, I wish I had the control to crush love. To eradicate it from my very being. To stop caring about a person who at one point....well, they felt important.But they're nothing. Nothing to me any more. And I still have this blasted aching feeling, and I want rid of it...

    Bad At It
