Lost in Translation

Fashion

There are times when life seems like a big black void. Tonight’s one of them. After all I’ve achieved, all the personal growth I’ve gone through and all great things I’m up to right now my life ought to be perfect. It ought to be at it’s peak. But it’s not. I’ve cried my eyes out. My stomach hurts as well as does my heart and I don’t know which one hurts the most. Probably it’s a combination of both. I know I’m not forgotten. I’m just… not in the picture anymore. I’m history. You however, you’ll always be a part of me. Past, present and future. I’m so thankful for having been given the gift to feel true, passionate love. It’s your birthday today. It’s been more than a year ago since we last spoke, although I talk to you every night. Sounds crazy I know. And I still hold your hand in mine, in mine when I’m asleep. May there come a brighter tomorrow.

      Gammal kärlek rostar aldrig. Idag var en sån där speciellt jobbig dag helt enkelt. :/

      That’s what I’m thinking Michelle. I’m not taking my readers on an emotional roller coaster ride, but I do have dips just as we all do and if I’m to stay honest and true I’ll take my readers with me on that ride. But all the love from you and many others make me feel so happy and lucky I’ve got such great friends!
      Lots of love coming right your way babe!

      Thanks Mandy! What you said actually hit me right in the heart, in a good way. I will never be forgotten. The thought of that makes me smile, and a bit teary eyed to be honest, but still.
      Thanks for all the love!

    Beautifully written Thomas and very touching. Perhaps one day you will share more about this heartache you’re feeling, I am so sorry to read of the distress. You are an amazing young man who has indeed achieved much. Keep your head up, as you said there will come a brighter tomorrow. Thanks for sharing something so deep xo

    This sounds so familiar! Don’t let today or tomorrow bring you down and drain you of your creativity and awesomeness! Sometimes life gets tough, and then tougher but we are always in control of our actions and attitudes. Sending warm thoughts your way! You are not alone or forgotten! It’s only human nature, and we all have these moments. Truth is, bright days are always in sight!! 🙂 xo, Adelina
