    My Undoing

    Looking back, this is why I'm lonely. I tasted heaven. I found someone I adored more than life itself. I reckon she loved me back, just maybe not quite like that. THAT love was unattainable, it made me happier than I ever thought I could be, yet also sadder than I ever thought I...

    ...And Looks Too...

    I can't do it. It's not fair. And yes, Life isn't fair sometimes. But I think I deserve a good-looking guy with a nice personality....instead of one or the other. Guys tend to get the women they want...those kind buxom beauties. But I can't get the guy that I want? No way. I'm...

    Though love is not enough, and you may have a very hard life with your loved one, but without it, life would be unbearable.

    ...and Not Just Love, But Sincere Love

    I don`t want the `I love you because you`re in my life right now love`, I want the real thing, and I`m fine waiting for it.Insincere love hurts too much.

    Love... Is Nice

    But really... I'd settle for affection... I think love, being the ultimate prize that it is, is rarely as true and pure as true love should be. So just give me someone who has affection for me.
