    Into More Pieces Than My Heart Was Made Of.

    Does it break my heart? Of course. Every moment of every day, into more pieces than my heart was made of. I never thought of myself as quiet, much less silent. I never thought about things at all. Everything changed, and that distance wedged itself between me and my happiness. It...

    Lift the Load Please.

    It is a struggle to go through the motions of a life.  It is exhausting.  My days last forever because I don't sleep much.  How do you move forward?  I am stuck.

    Disappointment

    I go to sleep praying to never wake. I wake to disappointment. This life is so heavy. I know God is supposed to be there, but where?

    I Feel Like An Addict

    That's always a good question. And a hard one for me. Sure I struggle. Money's tight. I never have what I want. But I always have what I  need. My emotions run wild at times after abuse and a divorce. Raising three children is a *****. But they always know I love...

    Euthanize Me!

    I'm not living, I'm existing,

    and I'm just barely existing. I really haven't changed much from birth to now. As far back as I can recall, I was always avoidant, dumb, and alone. Those problems I've had for so long, after all these years, still stand in the way of my life, the way I wanted to live it. I...

    I think we all do at times. We would not be human with human emotions if we did not. Life is a struggle and it is up to us how we cope with it.
