    His Work Of Art

    He works diligently - never giving up. Sorting through the debris seeking anything salvageable. Gently piecing together those things that can be mended. Discarding those which cannot. He stitches. He tacks. He cements. He works long into the night molding all the pieces together...

    my boyfriend of 7 years left me unexpectedly for one of my close friends. Today is his birthday. I'm struggling to be the better person, to be kind regardless of the pain and suffering he has caused me. I sent him an e-mail. It simply read, "Happy Birthday, I wish you well." I...

    Looked Up

    This wonderful guy has been helping me heal. Truth is he has been for about thirteen years, I just never looked up to see how special he is. I had my heart broken rather harshly and he has helped me through it. I didn't think I would ever get over her but he has proved me wrong...

    Consolation For My Pains

    I just realized that a lot of the issues that I thought were my faults were results of abuses being done to me as a child. Suddenly I learn that there were almost nothing "random" in my life---the obsessive complusive disorder, addiction, mediocracy, financial struggle, violent...
