The Broken Child In Me

Sometimes I really, truly, honestly believe that if only I had apologized for everything I had ever done, they would never have left me.

(I'm so sorry.)

I Want My Money Back

You expect that when you go on a long, sunny vacation with a good friend that you'll come back happier - more relaxed - more at ease.

Maybe even comforted and rejuvenated after a long absence from your country and your people.

But then -- you just go back to a foreign country while she gets to go home.

And after a long, sunny vacation, having had someone to share your meals and your experiences with every single day -- having been with someone who loves you every single day -- you just go back to being alone.

I'm back in my dark place - and it seems like it's determined to hang on to me for a while.
