    Fragile And Broken

    I lie awake into another nightmare. And I can’t find a place to lay my head. I tried to close my eyes but sorrow keeps me awake. It creeps inside slowly that I don’t even notice the tears starts flowing. I tried to make it go away, but still misery finds a way. There’s...

    My Sob Story

    I spent 4 years and a small fortune earning my undergrad degree just to feel like I've learned nothing.  I went back to college to get a post-grad diploma for a year, and I'll be done in 3 weeks.  I haven't worked since the summer after undergrad because I feel like I...

    unable to lift myself up. Weakened by darkness that sits on me as a heavy shroud on a funeral progression. I look up and see only a parched sky. Barren, but grey and lifeless. And I am afraid. Afraid of my head and the sounds at night. Nightmare whispers in a house filled with...
