You wear your pain like a worn out pair of slippers with no fluff left on them, the soles nearly gone. Your shattered heart is on the sleeve of the faded bathrobe you forgot to throw out. Your face that was bright and cheerful has only tiny pieces of you left, like a jig-saw puzzle waiting to be... Sign in to see full entry.

How many bridges are left standing that you still need to burn? You strike a match then walk away and watch it turn to rubble.

They looked out for their children teaching them right from wrong. It was their job as parents to instill the morals and respect. When their child made a mistake, the parents addressed it.
