How to use insane in a sentence?

  1. Dominic Riccitello:

    I believe he loved a lot of things about me, yet was afraid to accept. He said he never ended it because he never wanted to, that it wasn’t his intention. I believed him. I believed him because I know the fear of change and what could be. When he looked me in the eye, I smiled. I just smiled and nodded my head as I knew who he was and who he wanted to become. I’m not crazy or insane or obsessed, and no, I don’t want him back. It is what it was, I feel from afar and my emotions will always be. I’ll always love him, this life and next and I’ll always believe we met in a past life where we graced until death. But until once more, I hope your ride is lovely and just remember handsome, it’ll always be alright and I’m by your side until the end of time.
