so i've been reading my xanga. (my boss is out of town and there's nothing else to do from 7:30 until I leave at 4).
I've fallen for you all over again. each one of you. watching myself fall in love through my diary entries.
its almost as if its happening all over again
i feel the butterflies. i ride the rollercoaster. i see the heart break before it hits...and i still feel the tears in my eyes.
lol. the bittersweet taste of history...
i'm not sure if it should make me feel more comfortable to know that i keep making the same mistakes over and over again. its almost as if an author keeps rewriting the same character with different features.
or maybe i keep falling for the similaraties in all of you
or i only see him in all of you
or i'm just me...either way...i've relived it all this past week.
ever chocolate kiss, ever dinner date, every early morning, every tear
and everytime i run home to my sister and watch as she helps me put all of the little pieces back together to make the mosaic that is my heart.
