by Lissette Diaz

For once, I want it all out in the open; regardless of people judging me or me having to hear what anyone has to say. But I can't just do that because that would only remind me of that uneasiness that comes along with it. It'd bring to the surface that odd mixture of nostalgia and aggression that I try so hard to suppress. I hate that, that double dose of sentimentality that comes with being human. The emotional part, that part's just fine; I love emotions, the stronger they are the better. It's the soft, sweet mushy parts that I have a problem with.
