Jack's Twisted Kingdom
thoughts of kristin
i read this off of a grrls diary i know of, and images of my
ex came flooding into my mind...
I always thought it was strange the way she said things, i
think now, i understand..
it was never about me...
but i never understood that...
until now, i'd thought it was about us...
now i realize, it was about her, but she would use the sames
words, only i don't think she understands them
she's used them before, with ivan i know...
i wonder if she still thinks the same way...
but i don't begrudge her that
i never was very understanding

deserve, and will be treated with respect. i am more than a
maid, a pretty doll, and a comfort. i am all those things,
but i am more than that. i deserve love, and attention, and
care. i need someone else to sometimes be my maid and my
pretty doll and my comfort. i need to receive what i give.
i am not a toy.
if i feel like it, i am allowed to say "i need some time to
and it doesn't mean i hate you
or i don't like you
or i don't want you around. i means i need some time to myself.
i'm allowed to be frustrated, and it doesn't mean it's your
which i am entitled to.
which i do not ever get.
i'd go live under a bridge if it meant that i got a moment
of peace, but it wouldn't. i'm just going to listen to tool
