    Do we really know what we want in the first

    place? Even more so, what do we “really” need to do in order to satisfy our needs and feel satisfied within ourselves? Do we really know ourselves enough to get the right help for us to feel the satisfaction we are looking for? What is it that needs to be done as to what we...

    MaskYou slip on the maskNot to hide,

    But to reveal.. My inner mysteriesThe hidden and secretThe wicked and wildThe wanton abandonNaked, to you. Only you.So that we may bask in the light of my darkness.

    For My Fellow Man

    Like so many of you, I am trying to sell myself like a ***** to a company that will discard me like the ***** I am when they’re done with me. I will function in the hive complex, aspiring to achieve a meaningless title in a company..so that I can live a life of comfort. This is...

    I woke up with a dawn in the darkness of a

    train of thought...Trying to make changes to my life's sequence of logical events in the process of love and determination, Failing...Falling...Failuring...Not being able to stay intact in the Forever forever. All I needed it to happen just once. Just once.

    Help me to see what you see.

    I would like to understand your world, so please, describe yourself to me by using the words with the same meaning I use in my world. Your world needs to make sense to me first, in order to understand you. Do you understand what I'm trying to say to you?

    I didn't start out looking

    for you but I'm glad I found you. I walked into the store and there you were over in the corner. You were hot and looked incredible. You didn't see me but I saw you. I knew right then I had to have you so I made the first move. The closer I got to you the faster my heart...

    A few weeks ago I was talking with a friend

    and she made a statement that made me think about some hard times in my life. I'm not sure what we were texting about or why but she said, "I'm glad for the tough times in my past because it's made me who I am today". It also reminded me of a story I read many years ago. 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...

    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...

    Time changes when I see him.

    My mind relaxes and a smile surfaces, no matter what is happening in my day. For the first few moments everything around me stops. No sounds. No people. No responsibilities. Just him. I miss him every second we are apart. When he is busy...or I am busy. I see him in...

    In RainShe awoke early,

    curled on her side facing him. She kept her eyes closed for a moment, listening for him, his deep breathing letting her know he was lost in dreams. She slipped quietly from the bed, hoping the soft ruffling sound of the crisp, white, hotel linens wouldn't wake him. Reaching for...

    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...

    My hands are small, yours would engulf mine.

    My height is not tall, you would tower over me. My arms are not strong, you would easily overpower me. You might be able to physically control me, but it takes a strong man to contain my wild spirit.

    I was empty and alone.

    You're smart. Too smart. You over think, because your mind moves at a million miles a minute.. You're sad, because you're not fooled by the world like everyone else. You don't get along with most people, because they just don't look at things the way yo do. You think you're dumb...

    It's just the two of us - I feel his presence.

    He stands just close enough that my body becomes aware, senses heighten. There is a shiver in the air. My body responds instinctively. I know what will happen if I allow my hand to drift towards him. I can already feel his body pressing into me, feel the cold wall...

    can experience is seeing the person that they love, that they are in love with, love someone else. Seeing them with someone else, knowing that they are loving them the way that they used to love you. It's painful. And in order not to think about it you do everything you can to...
