    I Have a Faint Idea

    I ache for something that isn't possible. I feel as though I'm supposed to be more than I am, but there's a cap set by my own mind that I can't pass. A cap of logic, and a cap of self-doubt. It's something out of the ordinary, but I'm not quite sure what.

    What is greatest in our lives cannot be translated into mere words.  Words tend to cheapen what we want most to express, so we are left with feeling of overwhelming fullness, that we know we have to let out, that we have to release, else we burst, but there is no language we...

    I Have Spent My Life Chasing This Ache

    This ache is one of my driving forces.  I have felt it my whole life and I still have not yet defined it.  As a child, it made me thoughtful and quirky.  As a teenager it expressed itself as various crushes on people I was too shy to talk to, but imagined whole...

    The Calling

    It is unbelievably frustrating to desire something and not know exactly what it is that you want; to know that you are meant to do something that will hopefully help mankind, but you don't know where to begin. I'm not exactly religious, but sometimes I wish for an angel to visit...

    I am a completely different on the inside

    than I show, most of the time, on the outside. I feel like I'm trapped inside. It is an actual physical ache, or urge, pushing against my ribs and wanting to burst out of my chest and carry me away from this place, to somewhere I should be.. I just do not know where that...

    Grun Tu Molani

    Stagnation has been a part of my life for too long and now I find myself reaching for something more. I need. I want. I have always felt a kinship with the main character in Saul Bellow's book Henderson, the Rain King. In the book, Henderson is struggling with this inner voice...

    A blurry, fuzzy, whimpering thing ever tugging

    at my mind..There is this basic need just to be hugged. To feel another warm body crush against mine and to simply be held tightly. I don't want to talk. I'm bad at that kind of thing. I want to feel safe and secure. I wish people weren't so complex and you could build a...

    If Everything Went My Way

    Yes, I Ache!

    I remember a time in my life, after I had been in a group of people, and my energy had been zapped, I would lie down, focus on my center, and it would feel as if my spirit was re entering.  It would complete and I would fall asleep.  Then after my nap I was ready to...

    Don't Know Squat

    However, I do know what I don't ache for.  I don't ache for a husband who wishes he could win $1000 a month for life because he could quit his job and stay home.  Not for a husband who says well, you're going to be a CPA, so I could watch the kids for $1000 a month...

     Maybe if I voice it it will go away but how do I even start voicing something I can't even explain in my own mind?

    Welcome ...

    I ache for a few things right now ... loving and sexual things ... intimate, erotic moments with a special someone.   But that's not all I crave ... there is something I can't define ... something elusive ... some joy yet to be discovered ... something which is there in the...

    It aches. There is an abyss of loneliness and sorrow that fills the spot where a heart used to be. She is not so simple minded, so as to believe there is no hope for another.  She simply knows the next will not fill the void, the emptiness, the hole. It is not the story of love...
