    I Dont Have A Choice

    I am writing this especially for my very special girlfriend on here and I am still struggling with whether to divulge it or not. Being it concerns a rather morbid topic and it is what I have planned, perhaps before this comes to pass I will have changed my mind. You all know my...

    Actually, I find myself holding my tongue A LOT, but not enough in the eyes of my parents. There are many times in which there are a lot of things that seem unfair and unjust. When I ask why something is, they don't want to respond because they see that as challenging their...

    Enjoying the Sound of Silence

    I tend to be an open book with those I know and trust but times like tonight, when I have so much to say, I'm choosing to say nothing.  Maybe it is because of "self preservation", fear or maybe as part of "growing up". Tonight I'm choosing to be quiet and...

    I'm so scared to be involved with anyone

    because I know that nothing lasts forever an it hurts so much when they go. I can't get close anyone. I don't talk about real problems. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid. It's so easy to avoid feelings. I just need to be numb. Always. Nothing feels right anymore. So just stay numb.

    What Are Words?

    What are words? The moment we commit to speak we step away from the truth of silence. We can’t say what we really mean and there is no way to insure what we say is received in the way we first meant it. Yet we try and try again.
