I have been a slave for too long; I have been living a life of servitude, servitude toward my own emotions. I let the shadows of doubt cloud my judgement, I let twinge of betrayal take away all the trust I have, I let the pain of the past destroy the precious memories of our... Continue Reading →
The promise of love that stays when love is gone—it’s a bittersweet refrain of a nostalgic song. Nostalgia is fine, but then, life happens, and it bites you; and you have to wake up and face reality. And within the realms of my reality, everything hurts like hell.
