Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 81 People

    As the Elements Twist

    In And Around  Me As the elements, Twist! Only Water surrounds  me, waiting to find the real me. And fathom me. Tempting as it might be. I still choose not to drown me.

    Don't Talk Of Love

    Yeah, I've heard that word before, it's sleeping in my memory. I won't disturb the slumber of feelings that have died if I never loved I never would have cried. I am a rock. I am an island.

    I Am A Rock..i Am An Island...

    I am a Rock~Simon and Garfunkel A winter's day In a deep and dark December; I am alone, Gazing from my window to the streets below On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow. I am a rock, I am an island. I've built walls, A fortress deep and mighty, That none...

    The Island

    I am an island coming forth from the depth of sea. I  have withstood many turbulent storms to be here with you today. Yes, I am an island and I am all alone.

    The Sea

    I am an island and you are my sea constantly bringing new treasures into my life.  You are beautiful just like the ocean but there is the constant flow of the tide where you wash over me and then the absence when you recede.  I wish it could be high tide all the time...

    And Surrounded By Many

    Feel like I am alone due to everything in my life, how I am and what I think/feel; that no matter what I do, it will remain the same.

    I Have Become One

    I used to be a peninsula. I had hope. Maybe I had a need to keep a part of me open. Now I am an island. I have shut myself off and closed my world to the outside. It wasn't always this way. Too many disappointments in the human race. Too many betrayals. Too many stabs in the back...
