Life Without You

Published: February 2008

Me without you
is like a leafless fall,

a man without a face,
and a child with no name.

The girl was in my dreams like a fairy tale. Suddenly she disappeared and gave me sleepless nights and tough days. There is an ocean of distance between us, but I believe in heart-to-heart connection. She always shared her secrets with me, and I did the same. This is love, not a game.

I thought a boy love me, but he didn't want me to be in his life and I don't know why, but I just wanted to love him.
