For someone I used to love.

Sprinkling softly, the rain falls down to earth, like tears from the heavens. Ironic in this moment, as my own eyes start to well. I close my eyes and bite my lip, pushing back my feelings as a clap of thunder shakes the ground. My once-treasured thunders...

The Circle of Love

Love is a strange thing between two people. This explains my observations in my life about love.

For all of you who have made it into my life.. you know who you are.
