    I wish you could just pluck memories out of

    your head like puppet strings. Like the Haitian off of Heroes. I wish you could choose what you want to forget and just, forget it.

    I didn't cherish her

    when I had the chance now she's gone. I tried to give her everything after losing her. She doesn't love me, she doesn't feel for me, I'm not even half the man I used to be. Iv lost my "friends", I'v lost maybe the one person in life that loved me for me. I'm stuck in this deep...

    I wish I could go back into time

    and prevent my mother from abusing me so long, with me just taking her blows. I should've fought back but I thought I'd be disrespecting her.

    I'll go back to August 28,

    2014 and I could have undone the biggest mistake of my life. Then, I shouldn't have appreciated the song "The one that got away". I really regret that part.

    I'd go back to the end of 9th grade

    where I had to make the decision if I wanted to get homeschooled or not.. I would've said no instead of yes. Okay, every kid in school dreams of just lounging around at home all day, but it's not as joyful as it sounds. You lose friends.. You're alone all day. Myself I lost...

    If I could go back in time I'm not sure what I

    would change. Because if I changed anything I might not be where I am today or have what I have. But a few things I might like, 1. I would be more confident at a younger age. 2. Not worry so much about what people thought of me. And 3. I would have taken better care of myself...

    Back In Time...

    I wish I could go back in time, back when our love was new. So I could carefully remind myself, of all the things I’ll do for you. All the sacrifices I will make, proving my love is true. All the things that I’ll give up, not seeing you coerced me to. Kept close to you under...

    The biggest thing I would do

    if I could go back in time, would be to not take things so seriously or personally. All the time I spent being resentful, could have been put to much better use. At least I am learning to do this now, and my life is much more calm and serene.

    The first doctor who episode I watched was

    Destiny of The Daleks. I had a TV/radio that had a monochrome green tube. I had to lie on my bed a certain way to get a clear picture! I used to enjoy making quesadillas at midnight while watching the famous space time lord.
