I Express Myself Through Writing

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 28,611 People

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I like my pain too much to let it go.

    The pain means you are real, we were real. It is all I have left. I hold onto it, without it you don't exist. We fade and are nothing. I can't accept that. The earth should crumble and shake with the weight of us. It should break into a million pieces with the pain of my...

    The road ahead.... She stood there.

    . Unable to see the road ahead.. Fears, doubts came running from behind and pushed her hard. She fell down.. but slowly stood up again with all her strength.. Yet she was unable to see the road ahead.. Was it bcoz of the thick fog or her own tears clouding her eyes.. She wanted...

    I have a secret life no one knows about

    (besides my husband) all my friends know I'm a writer but only for books. I have poems that I've written that I haven't shared with anyone. Some because I'm ashamed of what they are, others because I'm afraid of what people will respond with when they read them.

    Volcano. The irritating moaning,

    coming from the smoke of an eruption of the Gods's mouths, leading by Gaea, the leader of the ruthless of all, the one, who always gets away with more murders. The gas, screaming out of its insides up at the air, inviting all human emotions and nolife to fight to breathe...

    You know what your problem is?

    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...

    Angry tears burn in a way

    that anguished tears don't. Leaving acidic track marks as a sign you have been truly broken. Fury emanates from every fiber of the being...eating you up, scorching and destroying until the humanity you had is consumed with hateful rage. You try to suppress it; align the outer...

    You know what bothers me?

    People who only get offended because they think they have to. For instance: somebody makes a fat joke. You're not fat, but you think you should be offended because it MIGHT offend someone else. If you're not offended, then don't act like it. You look like a tool. Nothing is...

    Look at me, do you feel how badly I want you?

    Can you feel the need? Pull me into you...press your lips to mine. Let your hands go anywhere they want...I don't mind where you choose, because every part of my body wants to be touched by you.

    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...
