    What Is Love?

     Many people think I am to young (14) to know what love is. But, I believe everyone has a different opinion on what love is.  I don't think I will ever know intil I find it. I am growing up with divorced parents, a half brother 3 months younger than my youngest...

    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.

    Wounded Heart

    Been dating a girl for over 8 years. She broke up with me about 2 years and she wanted no contact from me. We got back together after 4 months and then eventually moved in together for a year. She recently moved out and said we were done. I'm still totally in love with her but...

    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...

    ... 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...

    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...

    Heart Is Broken But Don't Seem To Care.....
