    You were one of those boys. The kind that I couldn’t forget, the kind that infuriated and frustrated, yet completed me. It was as if when I met you, you cast a spell on me.

    There's pain deep inside of me But I deny it's there I feel as though I shouldn't hurt Because there's greater pain elsewhere There are people starving, Fighting for their life But I have plenty food, Never have to dodge a knife But pain is pain And that's the t...

    I stare as he finishes up the last few sentences of his assignment. He sits right across from me, and it’s too hard for me to pull my eyes away from him.
