  • i feel like i can trust you. we have an understanding. its effortless and natural.

    i dont like trusting people. i have a terribly hard time doing it. they only hurt you. i love them and they steal from me -says past relations.

    i used to be able to just love. it didnt matter. the moment, the month, the year... it was worth it. it didnt matter. but i was worse than rejected. it wasnt that you didnt love me back. you were literally killing yourself. the hardest part wasnt you inviting me over and then sleeping on the couch with some other girl & the like. it was watching the person i loved more than anyone. than anything. destroy them-self. and not being able to do anything. that's what made me not ever want to love again. or even trust again. friend or lover.

    everything was taken for granted. it was easy then.

    ive been in a different relationship for five years now and i'm so afraid of this hurt that its ruining it.
