    I received hopeful news today.

    I felt like telling someone, but then I remembered that I'm alone. I'll keep it to myself even though it makes me a little sad, but I'm also happy. I remember times when I expressed what good things happened in my life only to have my moments of optimism shot down by people who...

    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.

    Amazing How This Works.

    I pressed the send button on one little email and I suddenly feel adrift. 6 years worth of work can be blown out the window with a simple delete button. The pit of my stomach suddenly feels three miles deep. I watch my ten year old sleep in the room next to mine and suddenly...

    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.

    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...

    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 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...
