Favorite Quote:
"A day without laughter is a day wasted" -Charlie Chaplin


What does it feel like to have someone there one second
And then gone the very next
The emptiness in your heart, but filled at the same time
The feeling you are drowning
Drowning with sorrow, regret, grief, emotion
You feel empty, but like a balloon about to burst
Overflowing emptiness, aching through your bones
Trying to find the lightness of the day
Trying to reach, but suddenly falling
Quickly shrinking, losing your surroundings
In a matter of seconds you are completely gone
