93. Hallo

Goeiemiddg, ik zit juist net in een mooie relatie ;) 



94. How could it has ended if we never properly started?

My first love was an unfinished one, we met right before each of us were to depart, back to a home one of us longed for and the other one dreaded.

I thought we....

could not lived without him.

Never want to see him again. 



95. What would we are without wishful thinking...

It's here where I met you.

It's here where I left you.

I had no idea what happen.

Did you?

would anyone? I don't know still I still and he did never included in forever. 



96. I was the lover.

She decided not to be with me,

but to stay with her girlfriend. 

I left the country.



97. Corazon roto veces. ahora encontre el amor...



98. i want to learn, he.. wasn't  ready to teach, I guess another times, another place. 



99. We just had different opinions of the directions we wanted our relationship to go. 

I had to break up to save myself.

My heart, my soul and what defines me. 



100.  We were at the airport after 8 months of traveling together.

I flew back to Europe and he returned to California. 



101. I said goodbye.

He said nothing. 

I repeated: goodbye...

He said he had already said bye months ago. 



102. Love is finite. 

You die alone. 

Mother or girlfriend? I didn't lose hope yet, curious.



103. You're coming with a red dress, holding a sweet flower. 

I have been loving what we had...

I don;t love it anymore..



104. Seeing you, standing there with your wrinkled face, 

your bowed shoulders I knew you always were the one I sincerely loved.
