The feeling of breaking up with someone can hardly be described by using some simple words. At the end of each day, there is always that annoying question: how do you really feel?

The gig is up. The last day of Summer has slipped right through my fingers, not because I didn't hold on to it tightly enough, but because all good things must come to an end.

What I am saying is: You never know.…Continue
