  • Of Love And Madness

    January 15, 2010 ishabelle

    I received this last year as an e-mail from my friend. I didn’t read it at first because I knew it was just one of those forwarded e-mails that became a fad.

  • It Might Have Been (reposted from my other blog)

    December 20, 2009 ishabelle

    For all sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are these: “It might have been.” –John Greenleaf Whittier Not all love stories last. Some have bad endings. People often say that the hottest love has the coldest end. Sometimes, even the ones who areĀ in love the most are the ones who part ways. I do not want my love story to end. I want it to go on and on, for as long as the world exists. As impossible…
