Eyes sunken in, she rests her chin on her wrist, wondering what the purpose of life is. Is it finding joy in random toys, in video games and interested boys, praying a smile fills that void? Or is it reminiscing in random texts, time machines of things you've left, people, places, words, and thoughts- Memories … Continue reading Nothing particularly Important
