Looking Back

He was never that guy that made my nerves implode His eyes were like oceans that hold endless horizons. He was a sunny day, and I once soaked in his rays A safe and warm home that I once called my own. He never made me lose any sleep. He never made my appetite weak.... Continue Reading →

Sure, I love you. But that’s no reason for you to boast. Because that doesn’t mean I like you. Not even close. I don’t like anyone I love. Should you ask me why, then I’ll show you my scars the others have made Then I’ll show you the ones that came from your blade. Featured... Continue Reading →
