"You left me standing still, hence I have gone cold upon your return." ramengonecold is the proud lucky thirteenth member of The Ugly Writers, struggling to write about love and anything that can get everyone high.

In Time

More often than not, all it takes is a string of troubles in our lives to happen first before something significant comes along. We ultimately will get to the best part, the question however is when. Expediting things is rather…
