nothing.

Shattered Fragments

I know you’re sad. All of a sudden you found yourself in an unfair situation — collecting all the broken pieces of your soul. I don’t know what is the reason for your unhappiness. Perhaps, people failed you, rejected you, they broke your heart for a blurred thought — they left you. And I am…
