Favorite Quote:
"I am a series of small victories and large defeats and I am as amazed as any other that I have gotten from there to here" Charles Bukowski

It’s when you feel safe
When you believe that nothing could possibly go wrong
That’s when you get hurt

And that’s why it stings
Because you hate yourself
For putting your guard down

Except if you had kept it up
You wouldn’t have let him in
And you would have sabotaged it all

You couldn’t have felt that love
That acceptance
The complete and utter wholeness
Of being his other half

If only for a little while

If life is only about experience
I’m glad you were one of mine
