    Open Doors

    Mommy was done with me. She'd had her fill, it was time for me to get dressed and leave her room so that she could sleep. That made me glad, to finally leave the room and play with my twin. I figured she'd be in our room, so that was where I headed. I limped through the house to...

    I've remembered everything.

    It took me some time, but I remember it all now. These past few days have been a nightmare. I just feel so out of it. I can't handle anything right now. I try to distract myself, get caught up in my life, in finals, but it just isn't working. I need to be alone, to think. But I...

    I Am Haunted

    It is fading with the years. Time is good. It has put years between me and that poor, shivering wreck of a person. I don't have to live inside of it like I once did. Eventually, I was able to keep my mind in the present. Whatever trauma I have now, whatever misery I have, at...

    My Mom Is Dead But Won't Leave Me Alone.

    My mother was a drunk. She was a violent, hate-filled person who punished me because she couldn't cope with her life, which was a pretty good life. Loving husband who took care of all the bills, never hit her or treated her wrong in any way. I was beaten, verbally abused, thrown...

    "weeping Endless For The Night..."

    Sometimes I lay awake in bed at night trying to sleep. Memories of you are in my head. In my mind I can see your eyes, dark smoldering eyes. A dark smoldering soul. Haunting. I remember watching you through the kitchen window, in the back yard playing in the garden. The...

    Ghosts, Dreams & Memories.

    It started recently. I knew I was in for a ride, But I never imagined what would happen next. I started to see people that looked like old crushes. Could have been but I wasn't sure. Then the dreams started. But more overwhelming than they were a few years ago. People I shouldn't...

    That Day

      I can/will never get that image of my granny taking her last breath; when they rolled her outta the hospital room-in the body bag. That long black bag..it'll forever be burned in my memory.

    I can see you, even feel you in my dreams. It's been so long the details of my memories have begun to fade in the background--now I have a plethora of questions that go unanswered. I feel as though you are watching me from around the corner. Heat emanates from my body awaiting...
