General Rules:


Disruptive Content
All comments must stay on the thread’s topic. Do not post comments with the intent of derailing the thread into off-topic conversation or out of control arguments. Thread titles must not contain misleading descriptions of the thread’s content, capitalized words for the sole purpose of hyping the thread or all caps formatting. Fake news articles must be marked as such in the thread title. ATRL prohibits the use of nicknames when referring to public figures, brands or other users. For more information on this, see the nicknames warning. Intentionally fooling the profanity censor is also prohibited.

Offensive Content
Do not post content of a sexual or discriminatory nature.  This includes avatars, signatures and other public profile content. Mentioning or linking to adult entertainment websites is also prohibited. Content that is extremely violent or otherwise discomforting needs to be marked as such and must only be linked, not embedded. It must also be relevant to the topic at hand. 

Disrespectful Comments
Critical comments are welcome, but you are not allowed to insult or belittle members or staff. This includes indirect means such as your avatar, signature, custom title or in conversations with others. PMs may be investigated in extreme cases.

Day 1 since @Gaia formally doesn't know me anymore


- We lost each other - 




I could ask you to stay,
But there's really nothing left to say.

This breakup has been emotional and long,
But I know I'm strong.

I guess we naturally grew apart,
But it still hurts in my heart.

We went days without speaking or sending a text,
And I could only wonder what was next.

There were times we couldn't look each other in the eye.
How did we get this far, and why did something so special have to die?

As I write this, memories flood me.
They remind of all we used to be.

Even when things were bad, I never thought this relationship would end.
Our broken hearts I thought we could mend.

Now you've left without a goodbye.
I've got no energy to even cry.

I knew it was over when we started doing things on our own.
You got so distant and I was alone.

I tried getting you to notice that I was still there,
But you made up your mind and didn't care.



New thread had to see how 2020 started for us, for archives purposes...
