After all of that

By veingo

They try so hard.







Just to get into




After all of that

They just walk out.

I have a box of broken fingernails

I pulled out of my chest.

    I think I just hit the ground and fell to pieces Ron. I know the other side of this, meaning when a man leaves his woman, emotionally. Very home hitting for me. Wonderful work, despite the pain. *hugs* Julia~
