    Traces of you linger,

    painting my bedroom walls with your scent. Visions of you flash, my eyes lucid dreaming of your shape. The taste of your name in my mouth, my lips quiver. Your soft fingertips across my body, my skin lathered in goosebumps and trembling. Resounding echoes of you saying "i love...

    Sober it's a better life I hear,

    no bud no beer, no dope, no coke, just hope, that doesn't mean I lack the craving, sometimes it's like there's no saving.... me. less it be something hard core like strong liquor, xtc, mixed with lsd, I'm Al alone but sometimes it's best to be that way, it pushes back that day...

    We are the sum of our experiences.

    .. I only have 31 Am I summed up by all of these?Do they judge me for these? My favorite part is the anonymity, even if you can't relate, even if you choose to hate, You won't ever know me.

    My spoken words never come out right.

    I'd rather write how I feel.

    She was so tired of feeling pain.

    It dragged onto her like a million pound weight, onto her heart. Rusted iron claws, cracked open and dug into her chest, letting the wounds blossom once more, splitting open the scabbed-over-marks in her chest cavity in her wrists in her thighs in her mind new blood, oozed...

    Words cannot express all

    that she means to me, for she knows that which I cannot explain.

    I've recently given one of my favorite teachers

    my first legit story, and this was a little bit ago, she hasn't given it back yet. The story was an outline, it was fifteen pages front and back, I know my handwriting is bad, but I know she can read it. Do I ask for it back or do I wait for her to give it back?

    I don't consider myself to be a great writer,

    my pieces will probably never be published and no one will know my name after I'm gone. That being said, as someone who deals with depression I have never found such a sanctuary for my thoughts and feelings. My sadness gets put into the words I can not make out when people ask...

    Speaking allows for far too many complications.

    I stumble and butcher the words when, in my mind, they sound mellifluous. With writing, it sounds the way I want it to every time

    On a good day I can write into worlds into

    I can never be an eloquent speaker

    but my mind can feed me deeper thoughts that I can write in a blink, just like now...If I were your sun and you're my moon,Can we meet halfway like around noon?Then maybe we can drink, laugh and dance,Let this chance be our lifetime romance!

    The Intelligent Idiot

    I can express myself a lot better through writing than I can through talking. I enjoy writing and I like to think I am good at it. When I write, I sound intelligent, and can get my point across effectively. However, every time I open my mouth to speak, I sound like a total idiot...

    I used to write poetry,

    then I stopped. Because I tried to stop myself from feeling emotions so intensely, and I lost my fuel for writing. I don't know if that makes sense. Like many, poetry was a way for me to express my emotions (frustration and sadness mostly). It was a creative way for me to deal...

    I recently loses a good friend of mine.

    Me and her were like best friends. We would go home together, go shopping, and always making each other laugh. However, one day when I came to school she suddenly didn't want to talk to me. I didn't understand why. I mean I couldn't think of anything that I've did to hurt her in...

    I am shy, I have always been,

    and that's why I have always expressed myself better using written words than spoken ones. Spoken words can be caresses, but arrows too. I see written words as vessels, taking their shipment of thoughts, feelings, from one port to another.

    Some of us out there are just not wired to be outgoing. We know exactly what we want to say, but a lot of the time it just comes out wrong. We are often every bit as intelligent as those who are talkative, many times even more so. But some of us just aren't blessed with the...

    I was like this from a young age.

    writing the words down makes it easier to

    calculate the rhythm and expose the point at the perfect time. delete delete delete and retype then send. but once spoken it can't be deleted and the punchline's effect is lost forever. being dyslexic makes for some quirky points made when not reread carefully though

    It's excruciatingly awkward and frustrating for me. It's a burden to always keep thinking of "stuff" to talk about. I don't have a wide range of knowledge, so I'm afraid of getting something wrong or revealing my total ignorance. I don't like to grill people, or ask them a lot of...
