Dear Hannah

May 16, 2017


I know how you felt. I know the loneliness that you described like the back of my hand; the pain, the emptiness. And it makes me sad that no one was there for you. It makes me sad that so many people in your life had failed you. I like to think that if I […]

For Eternity

April 7, 2017


I finally found what to say, To you, my confidant; always receiving my feelings, my thoughts, my troubles. I’m alone; in heart, in spirit, in mind. She didn’t want me, like they always don’t.

Unsolvable Feelings

June 8, 2013


“Why couldn’t we be friends?” She asked, teary-eyed. He stared back at her, not comprehending what was going on. In his hand was the gun he had, only a moment before, put to his head, and pulled the trigger. He looked away from her and to the gun. “How..” “Let me explain,” She said, suddenly […]
