    I don't mean to be rude with what I am about to say, but I think I have to say it. I apologise if someone gets offended in advance. I am quite sick of people judging my and others' stories and questions. I joined this website because I felt a certain freedom in expressing my...

    He pleaded with me, "I love you.

    " I cried back... "Love shouldn't hurt like this." I'm afraid to look in the mirror. I will surely see myself fading, like smoke. Can someone love you to death?

    Why We Must Remain....Perfect Strangers

    The stride is long and confident, sometimes deliberate, down this path of life. Boot straps are wound tightly concealing the foot aches from journeying many many miles of discovery. The hat brim is drawn down to protect you from these sky blue eyes, an overcoat flaps in the...

    “Our culture has filled our heads

    but emptied our hearts, stuffed our wallets but starved our wonder. It has fed our thirst for facts but not for meaning or mystery. It produces "nice" people, not heroes.” ― Peter Kreeft

    Quietly lurking in the shadowed safety of the

    trees of anonymity, I write the words of love you inspire in my soul. Then at dusk I gently toss them along the path, hoping you will find them like unexpected wild flowers growing free. I care not who they remind you of, I only care that they make you smile, and add a bit of...

    Home doesn't mean just the roof over your head.

    Home could be the most loneliness and less loving place to be. Home is in one's heart. Where ever you are, where ever you feel safe, secure, peaceful... That's where home is.

    I Like My Work.

    Someone asked me what I do for a living. The following is a letter I wrote telling him a little about my work history. He told me it is a  great story and would make a good movie. I laughed and said that it would gross fifteen cents at the box office. I said I could prove it. I...

    I wonder what you think of me.

    Am I real to you or just a toy to you. Do really want to know. We all think differently never the same. So what you say should I let it truly effect me. What do you think?

    When you said apathetic,

    it struck me in many ways. The most apparent intent behind that was the team switch, from offense to neutral. Now it's only me left fighting, which is a mighty contrast to the story as it was two years ago when your heart was still in my possession and mine was just missing. I...

    I have learned to simply refrain from

    expressing my fears and pain to her. Having them met with a silent disdain offers me no comfort or relief and no doubt adds to her discomfort by being asked for a level of intimacy that she is emotionally incapable of participating in. I use writing as my release, I write...

    My Forgotten Passion

    I had lost it somewhere, between here and there.  The words no longer came like they once had. Maybe I was lacking the passions I once had. I missed writing and the passion it brought out in me for my love, my life, and my existence. My whole existence numbed and became merely a...

    It is natural to be fascinated with the Unknown.

     The Universe.  It's literally in front of us and we just  don't have the understanding of it. Where did we come from? Are we alone in the Universe?  How can you even possibly say yes or no, if you can't know?  Where do you stand as a little human being in counting the...
