    A few weeks ago my wife

    and I had the unexpected opportunity to have dinner alone. At the last moment our kids had made last minute plans and would be away for the night. We usually can't agree on much but we can always agree on this one particular restaurant. It's a little mom & pop hole in the...

    As a child you`re told love will concur all

    but then you grow up and realize love isn`t always enough. That sometimes, even when you wish with all you have that it could be different, fate has other things in mind.

    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...

    Memories.. Sometime memories are our only

    chance to keep the past alive and to remember what is long forgotten. Some of them are bad and we don`t want to remember and others are like a present that can heel us from the bad thinks that happen to us. That give us Strength and happiness. And then there are moments that...

    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...

    See the world through my eyes.

    Lord Of Darkness

    A Scene From The Twilight Zone

    Today was a special day, my first day on a new job. Doing something that would be rewarding and please me. Lets call her Alice, my new boss. One of the "must-do" was never to smoke while I was there for any reason. No problem, I don't smoke that much to worry. Then it was do not...

    Bob, the school hacker.

    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...

    A Little Mystery

    Too much of something/the same thing causes it to lose it's appeal. It just starts to become over exposure. We've lost much of that delightful and powerfully erotic sensuousness and sexuality in both immediate gratification and blatant 'in your face' behavior, without the...

    The twilight cavern yawns The dim red glow

    Silence was the sound I feared most; Yet this

    tongue, tied to the swaying mast Of a wild and howling mind, an unseaworthy vessel At the best of times, in bitter storms, set sail To plunder and tear the treasure from the hands Of friends that sought to quench it. So if the silence ever falls...this tongue, With mindless...

    Silence is more eloquent

    than words We need silence to be able to touch souls. Silence is a great source of strength. Saying nothing sometimes says the most. Silence is the most powerful scream and sometimes it breaks your heart. Silence can be the answer. Miracles happen in silence. Silence makes the...

    Love doesn't gently ripple at the edges of your

    heart. It pulls like a current with the ever changing tide, plunging your heart into the very depths of the water. There is no coming up for air as you submerge yourself fully, allowing the full force of it to hit you like a wave knocking you off your feet. Love can be stormy...

    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...

    I often feel I get picked last.

    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...
