    I Think Nobody Should

    ...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.

    ...And Looks Too...

    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...

    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.
