    Changes & Memories

      I miss living in NY. I lived there until I was 11 years old. Then I moved to Florida -___-. Here, I've become a completely different person from who I was then. Before, I was a naive and stuck-up, spoiled brat. I treated people like they should be honored that I even...

    Looking Back At It

    I was raped 7 years ago.  The memory of it comes back randomly and when it does, I play the scene over in my head.  When it does, I feel sick to my stomach.  I don't want to cry, I don't get angry, but my stomach just feels funny.  No idea why I do that. ...

    I Love You

    In my young beautiful life as a child I played and found joy in most everything I touched or saw. In the uncertain years of being a teen and trying to find the place I belong I loved with fear of losing and cried with hurt of heart, yet found time inbetween to act out...

    Life Was So Easy When Summer Lasted Forever...

    Remember that? the feeling that summer lasted forever, and there was so much thrilling potential, just around the corner - all the waterfights, camps, sleepovers, parties, family visits, and feasts that summer held in store?   I reckon its always summertime in heaven.
