    Oh You Can Burn Out Your Ability to Love...

    ... if you have something that won't cut off on it's own and most things will. What happened with me was I fell in love with a woman's singing voice. Then when I got her CD I listened literally for days straight. Then one morning I woke up and I was emotionally numb. I...

    It Would Seem Mine Can Take Quite a Lot...

    ... since it hasn't exploded yet. There are things you're just sure you will never survive when they're still nothing but hypothetical. But it's important to see the difference between hypothesis and reality. It's even more important to realize that there is always someone whose...

    Really? Seriously?

    I absolutely cannot take anything else. Why is it that when I'm trying to be happy, and maybe almost succeeding, that life piles it on? Over the past three weeks there has been so much negativity and drama that it's almost unbearable. It's easy to say, oh, don't think about...

    well.. you cant break something that's already

    broken. just like you cant fix something that's broken and have it back to normal. if the heart was going to explode it would have already. but instead it broke slowly. now it's just gonna shatter.
