the heartless

There are many times in life in which we will encounter people who do not make sense to us. For me, I will never understand a person who purposefully tears down another for senseless reasons. Life is already a difficult journey to navigate and it is one that does not last very long. WE ARE [...]



There is so much building inside my heart. The sorrow I feel is so full that I can't contain the tears and they just fall. Aimlessly. I do not know what it is my heart is trying to say. Am I crying for what was? Am I crying for a release? Am I crying to [...]
