Yeah, dude. I mean, yup - things became ugly - stuff got messy - but we were so damn close to each other - Since November, things just spiraled out of control. I believe it was written to happen that way, but I wish for once, that both of us can defy destiny and just TALK one day. Just TALK! Because, all of a sudden - a conversation that was NEVER supposed to STOP, STOPPED. And, it's okay. I don't even want to be FRIENDS anymore. I just want to have one CONVERSATION. Last one. Cry my heart…

I mean, yup - things became ugly - stuff got messy - but we were so damn close to each other - I just want to have one CONVERSATION. Cry my heart out.

JD Salinger wrote, “There are still a few men who love desperately.”…of which I am one.  I am not interested in the common, the shallow, the ordinary, nor the superficial.  I crave the kind of love that is rare, exceptional, and perseveres against all odds.   The kind of love that heals a scarred heart…and completes a searching soul with its mate.  This is what you give me... So true...

JD Salinger wrote, “There are still a few men who love desperately.
