    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...

    You were my morning coffee,

    You shook me awake. Before long I was addicted, Waiting for the next break. Infecting the daze with adrenaline, You brought the day to life. With every earnest sip, You distracted me from strife. A year or two has been and gone, And you’re my cup of tea. The warmest...

    What I've learned about this life

    so far is that we could only trust ourselves and God. It's become so confusing and frustrating to balance between trusting yourself and others that, in the end, people are just looking out for themselves because you're the only person you could hurt when you've lied to yourself...

    So hard to trust this online world Lies are

    rampant and so easily told I do not lie, even when it might cause pain Because in my own heart, the truth will stubbornly reign

    I picked up a pen and started writing today.

    I left my past behind some time ago. I felt that I lost a part of myself. The expressive self that always collated words into paragraphs detailing my existence.

    When I write a book, I can never seem to write

    the whole thing. I begin it and after I finish the chapter, another idea for a book pops into my head then I never go back to the previous one. Does anyone have the same problem?

    Short poem I wrote: 'Thumb war with social

    A Day Of Rest

    I felt her forehead and was relieved to see that the fever was going down. She had drifted off to sleep and as there were no more medication to take for another hour, I decided that I had a moment to make myself a cup of tea.  I was careful to turn the tv volume down but not...

    Love doesn't hurt. When someone tells you,

    " I miss you so bad, it hurts", don't ever hesitate to come and feel the pain, together.  Being in love IS the greatest vulnerable, fragile,  and yet powerful feeling ever. Even some may have asked like, "In the love process there is hurt included then how come they call it...

    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...

    This year for one of my school assignments I

    wrote about my anxiety. I put so much heart and soul into it I worried I would get in trouble with my teacher. Of course one day I was held after class by her only to hear her say what I wrote was simply beautiful and she expected great things from me.

    Sometimes I wonder how it would feel to feel

    blood running out of a wound slowly. To watch my surroundings blur in and out as I start to lose conciseness. To see everyone's gave around me. Their expressions twisted into happiness, and others have tears falling. Truthfully he won't ever know how I feel. She won't ever know...

    Can I really only be me? Does it make sense to say that I am only Me, different from all else, and existing as only myself. I certainly don't exist by myself. I look around and see walls, and dogs, and outside trees and hear crickets, but maybe that's beside the point. Would I...

    Hours of ************ And I still crave more.

    No matter how much sex I ache to my core. My passion and drive Are so innate. This fire is seems, No one can sate. Good men some say, Are hard to find Harder still, a good man, With a deviant mind. One who gives such Honest care. And needs sex more Than breathing air.

    No one notices everything,

    some may notice more than others. Some know more then you may know. Selecting very few people to tell certain secrets to, knowing the pain is just settling in. Distancing myself from the ones I don't want to hurt, yet I hurt them anyways. Words that aren't ever spoken but can...

    My skin is crawling, my body writhing beneath

    the folds of velutinous fabric. I need to feel you. I want to see the desire seethe from your eyes. I want to envelop you, as you fully immerse rigidly inside me; pushing through the spring surging from within me. I want to fully exhaust our bodies.

    The wave of emotions had hit me like a huge

    stone wall. I might just give up. To go to a side where they aren't. They obviously never wanted me around. So I slip by silently. My silence taken as anger. My distance taken as disappointment. But they'll never learn to stop and listen. The scars they formed and show no means...

    while trying not to cry and hold out that smile as long as she can. Behind the doors she cries herself to sleep, she's a mess, hurting and is lost. She knew her world was crumbling beneath her feet
