    Not A Single Soul

    My past is a tapestry of violence, fear and survival and because of that, I cannot relate to my peers. Somehow, I've traversed through this life without a single friend. Until recently I found it empowering to be alone, but now that the kids are older and ready to journey on I...

    Sometimes

    There are just times when I feel like I'm the only one around. I am sure many of us have been there and I know it will pass but it just seems like the world has come to a stand still and it's just me, here, alone, breathing, crying, just being...

    Anyone Home?

    Funny, but I have always longed to hear those words echo through my front door. I'd shout from the other room, "Come on in. I'll be right there!" But that is not my life. Never has been and I would guess it never will be. I was on the playground, guess I was about 7. Three...

    I looked into the sky basked in the morning dew. and the desolated tree tops only understood by a few. They look down at us from way up there, swaying swiftly in the dewy morning air. I hear their whispers I can hear them clear. Brought to me with the wind down the atmosphere. I...

    A Paradox In Life

    The older I get, the more lonely I get. It's an odd feeling... Aren't we supposed to grow closer, more endeared, with our loved ones as we age? I always thought touches would become softer. Gazes would linger longer. I would remember the smell of the people in my life, their...

    We all feel like we're alone.

    Some every day, others only feel it a few times in their life. But we all feel it. The important thing to remember is that no madder what your situation. There is someone else in the world who feels the same, or at least would understand.
