    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...

    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...

    The bat, butterfly and bullet.

    The bullet was stained with his blood. As the butterfly softly landed on the tip of his nose. His eyes slowly opened. Wings, wind and wall The fate of the blind bat was sealed.

    I love writing... I have a few ways I do it.

    One is just journaling like a diary and the other is open page where anything goes. Here's just a few of my ramblings about it. I have so many thoughts that fill my head throughout the day, some I enjoy listening to others that I certainly don't. What I enjoy doing often is...

    The road ahead.... She stood there.

    The thoughts fall and rise,

    such as rain hitting a substance and bounce off in disappearance. I feel like a rain drop in the cloud falling down miles With the rest feeling much within that travel with the air and in within less than a minute, hitting hard against a object. I disperse and time stops for me...

    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...

    Quietly lurking in the shadowed safety of the

    trees of anonymity, I write the words of love you inspire in my soul. Then at dusk I gently toss them along the path, hoping you will find them like unexpected wild flowers growing free. I care not who they remind you of, I only care that they make you smile, and add a bit of...

    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...

    Angry tears burn in a way

    as the water scorches my skin, I let my heart free and I miss you. My heart feels so empty, but somehow that only makes it heavier. The weight drags me down as I examine the jagged ruin that is left of my chest. Will anyone be able to make me feel again? Is this all that is...

    I dream of you. It is a beautiful,

    soft dream. Smiles, laughter, happy hearts. No loneliness...no unfulfilled needs. I dream of being able to be myself...completely. Not hiding a very real side of myself. Accepted completely and desired.

    She fled the house into the torrential rain,
