    I want to drown in an ocean of every long

    embrace and kiss we've shared And dry myself in that look in your eyes that makes me melt

    When I was in my teens,

    I was totally clueless. Then I got into my 20s and 30s, became less clueless, but still relatively clueless. But now that I'm in my 50s, entering into to 60 soon, i'm starting to understand life. Why the **** did it take so long!

    `Empathetic people — dreamers

    and idealists — have this sort of accidental power. Most spend their early years ridden with self-doubt, insecurity, and people pleasing habits. But their journey is inevitably derailed when this comfortable life gets uprooted by an unexpected darkness. Suddenly their trusted...

    It's funny and you may need to be of my

    generation to get this, but we all grew up being sold the fairy tale. You know the one, the tale of living happily ever after. We were led to believe that by a certain age it would be a certain way, we would be happy, set for life, and have no worries. And maybe we weren't...

    that some people create their own storms, then have the nerves to get upset when it rains.

    I Search For You

    Some people see the world in black

    and white. They always see things as right or wrong. Some see shades of gray. And some of us see so many colors everywhere we look. Personally, I even like to throw some glitter in the mix. Things are better when they sparkle. Sometime I wonder if it can work out between the...

    The Porch Swing

    I spent the better part of this afternoon contemplating the purpose of dreams. Why, I asked myself is the brain capable of creating this conscious manifestation of something that we desire when it is wholly impossible in reality? Cruel occipital lobes, flashing images that then...

    Finally!

    Sometimes, during my dreams,

    something will interrupt them (still in a dream) and later on that day, it will happen. It has happened fairly often. It's kinda scary but kinda cool. I never really know when it will happen tho :(

    Thoughts of my morning brain.

    In life we have choices to make. It is inevitable. When making a choice please keep your humanity in it. Stop and think. Yes we react fast and suffer after the fact. But, for big decisions please think. Keep the compassion in you open. Allow yourself to heal but...

    People often underestimate what they're capable

    of. But you find out you can do a lot more than you thought you could, when you don't have a choice. We should all have more faith in ourselves and our abilities to start with

    I feel like an outcast in my own family.

    It's as if I'm on another dimension and I'm some sort of freak. Not just with them, but also people who could socialize properly. Do any of you know what I mean? :P

    This is an inherited trait.

    I constantly daydream,

    nonstop, to escape reality, because reality isn't as sweet as it needs to be for me right now. I love my world, and family, but I cannot support them in their time of need, because I am in need, maybe more than any of us know.

    had planned. But that doesn't mean it can't still be great. From the outside, right now probably looks like the lowest point in my life. From my perspective, though, it's definitely not. A couple of years ago, I had what a lot of people dream of. And I was miserable. I had no...

    It has probably been my downfall in life.

    One would assume we reach a certain age and some kind of wisdom and maturity set in as we adapt to the reality of life. In my case, that hasn't happened. I'm still a dreamer. Further, I fear if maturity sets in so will depression. My dreams, ambitions and creative nature are the...

    I sometimes stare into the cosmos & wonder

    about everything. About the universe & what's beyond it, theories & religions & our purpose as human beings. I wonder how our planet is to survive if we're killing each other. I think our purpose as human beings is to unite the planet as one.
