Favorite Quote:
What is depression really? Is there one concrete definition, or has the meaning loosened as our generation has continued it's downhill descent? To me, depression is simply my life. I'm not suicidal. I'm not a cutter. I don't hate the world. I don't dress completely in black. I'm just sad. I've been sad for what feels like my entire life, but that's not true. I was happy once and I can vaguely remember what it felt like, but I can't touch it. I can't get that happiness back, I don't know how. That's what depression is to me, knowing what happiness is, but never being able to touch it, to feel it.- Jenny Leigh

It's not the first time
I've committed this romantic crime
I just can't decide if its against myself
Or the heart of someone else
It's not the last time
That I shall speak this rhyme
I have loved, I have lost
I've been broken, I've been healed; is this the cost
It seems I love not enough or too much
I would be better off alone, as such
I'm sorry for I have lied
Despite it all for you I tried
Now that I have you
I know not if my love is true
This confusion will be the end of us
All we hoped for turned to dust
Scattered away with the wind
Because I longed to be more than his friend
Though your heart I have and cherish
Or so I would like to believe
Sometimes I think I may be deceived
Would you even miss me if I left
Would your heart break, leaving you bereft
Would you cry
If I told you goodbye?

The author's comments:
Describes someone who's in a troubled relationship and beginning to wonder if they're better off with someone else. Probably hard to figure that out just from reading it, but I gave subtle hints.
