    Melody

    Some sweet timeless melody comes drifting Echoing down through the corridors of time Like an old abandoned memory Lost in the layered pages of my mind.

    I wanted the night sky.

    The cold night, empty, dark--with a smattering of bright diamonds. The inconstant, nebulous, shining hope that you'd one day realize my affections against the dark, cold, empty reality that you'd never, ever care--regardless. Discovering little things about you like connecting...

    The tears begin to roll,

    But the feelings are no longer there. They know when it's time to come, But my hurting soul can't muster, Any of the feeling, That it used to have. Only seeing beauty and hate, So different but yet the same in this world. Over time, All the feelings have disappeared. So...

    On a bright sunny Sunday afternoon,

    I sat on the deck enjoying the warmth and colors of spring. When suddenly a beautiful butterfly came floating gracefully past me. I hoped it would lite on the fresh white rail, or among the bright flowers in the nearby hanging basket, but to my dismay it continued on with steady...

    Maybe the world is crazy,

    or maybe it's just me. People's words can either bring me up or break me down. Most of the time they've broken me down. They say they don't mean it, but what's the point of saying it then? Do you just say them because you don't care? Because you don't realize that your words are...

    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...

    I overheard familiarity.

    His voice has carried happy giggly notes of a happy music he sang to her. I didn't mean to listen. I didn't mean to look at him. I turned my whole life spent with him away, in one ashamed look. It took me two seconds to realize, he was my ex and his new girlfriend, I glanced...

    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...

    who kills with his mind. He sins like no other because doesn't know any different. His hands are bloody, his face is scarred, his heart is cold. He kills the few to spare the many from being killed by the few. But still, he kills the few. He does not have a name, they call him...

    I often feel I get picked last.
