    my birth date. that's the day I died and within 5 minutes came back to live. I won't go into the gory details but my windpipe was strangulated during the birthing process and so I'm told, I died for 5 whole minutes before they managed to resuscitate me. God, I wish they didn't...

    The crucial moment was around the age of 8-12,

    the worst time of my childhood that has traumatized me more than anything else. It was a period of constant drunken fights between my mother and her boyfriend, the screaming, throwing things...alternated with peaceful, normal, loving times. At these times the hopes of a child...

    I Wish You Were Here

      March 3, 1993, my older sister died and she took half my heart and soul with her. She was, like any typical oldest child in a Hispanic family, a mother, guide, best friend, and crime partner to me.  She taught me to read, and write before I ever entered school. She...

    Dead Like Her

    Died a long time ago: I'm not talking about past lives, I am talking about tragedy and despair. The type that warps you and turns you into an abyss of darkness - the edges of which are sheer and seem impossible to climb out of. I died a thousand deaths when my wife was killed...

    I use to be dying to live -

    now I'm living to die. I use to have a spark in me but now it's dead and gone. Life around me isn't the same. I may be still on this earth but my soul has died and left my body. There is nothing left but an empty shell

    A New Me Every Day

    Every day we die, and are a different person the next.  The more we try to hold onto the person who we were in the past, the more dead we are in the moment.  And the moments we are alive are too precious to waste being dead.  :)

    I dedicated myself to a dead man.

    He healed my heart but took my half away. Everyday waking up I die. Remaining half is killing me everyday. So I died when i met him.

    Just A Corpse That Walks

    I'm not alive just because I breath. I'm just a cold, lifeless body with no purpose, no feeling of love or care, and no love to give back. They say people like me wear a mask, and no one can see the pain in their eyes because they hide it. In my case, that's not true. The reason...
