I am a human. I make mistakes. I gossip. I judge. I can be hypocritical.
I don't have everything figured out.
I look for love in the wrong places. I end up hurt or used or left stranded. Or just the opposite.. I use, I leave, I hurt.
I often feel like I have to be so strong for others, but now I am feeling weak.
I escape into books and poems and movies and music because sometimes these stories are easier than the life I have made for myself.
Maybe this is how it is for everyone. Maybe not.
But I need to stay on these escapades just a little longer.
My heart needs a break.
