Why do I keep dreaming of him!? It should be outta sight, outta mind. It’s been more than a month now and my subconscious should have forgotten what his face looks like. I believe there’s still some hate in me. Some grudge that I try to get rid off because I don’t win anything by holding a grudge or bad feelings. It is what it is, he doesn’t love me and SO WHAT! It aint the end of the world. Sometimes you just don’t have anything else to do but move on. Even though I beat the shit outta the girl he’s dating, according to my dreams he is, so I beat the shit outta her and flew away in my car. Tehehe (:
