    I’ve been roused from my slumber with an

    uneasy feeling It persists even to this day in many forms This time was a first It hurt to be when I was vividly dreaming Of something out of my control The deep buried thoughts Are they resurfacing after this long It can’t be true Why now What gives them the right To appear...

    I haven't been the best of friends with myself.

    I know I've let myself down and that I'm harder on myself than most believe I should be But that's the price you pay when you have a disadvantage and need to adapt. It hurt knowing that I have thrown some key moments away. From that I've learned to be more selective and open...

    When the clock strikes you raise your head just

    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 like to write a lot.

    On this website, as you may notice, much of my writing takes the form of either hilarious satire or deeply personal accounts of my mental problems. (This story itself may be a bit of a joke). Writing is something I often use in the middle of the night to get all the racing...

    I have a weird relation with writing.

    I really don't feel like I write to express myself but rather to feel real. It sometimes feels that the world is a dream and when I write, I'm awake.

    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...

    One day she'll walk with me,

    Not as now, in distant fantasy On the bleak moors of reality But by my side... I know she'll walk with me! And though the heather may have lost its purple hue, The thistles meadow trespass bends 'neath morning dew When buttercups, once vast, are few She'll surely walk with me.

    I write as the thought's flow,

    this has always been my writing style, what's in my head is immediately put down (written or typed) yet as I sit here and want to kick start this process for my day ahead, right now I'm blocked as if I'm wanting to scream and nothing is coming out.

    Her tongue flicked across the temptation placed

    so desirably before her.. Luscious sensation flooded her senses and created a ravenous thirst for more.. She craved, needed. Hungered for more To feed her, fill her up, satiate her fully.

    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...

    I have learned to simply refrain from

    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.
