    I like my pain too much to let it go.

    The pain means you are real, we were real. It is all I have left. I hold onto it, without it you don't exist. We fade and are nothing. I can't accept that. The earth should crumble and shake with the weight of us. It should break into a million pieces with the pain of my...

    It's my life not yours.

    Listening to my heart has never been the best

    decision. My heart is wild, impetuous, and weak. It only sees the bright side, the wonderful possibilities, and the happiness. I should always stop and think with my mind. My mind is logical, intelligent, and strong. It sees reality, written in large black and white block...

    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.

    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 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...

    A few weeks ago I was talking with a friend

    and she made a statement that made me think about some hard times in my life. I'm not sure what we were texting about or why but she said, "I'm glad for the tough times in my past because it's made me who I am today". It also reminded me of a story I read many years ago. I...

    I have a secret life no one knows about

    (besides my husband) all my friends know I'm a writer but only for books. I have poems that I've written that I haven't shared with anyone. Some because I'm ashamed of what they are, others because I'm afraid of what people will respond with when they read them.

    I wouldn't even shatter you know.

    I'm not beautiful enough for that. I'm invisible; transparent glass. A beautiful person shatters in striking sound and a spray of sharp shards. Not me.. I start with small cracks, unnoticeable. Before you know it, I am covered, broken. I do not shatter. I silently fall apart.

    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...

    Some more writing .. Thoughts?

    I never realized I would go down fighting to the infinite end - until this very moment.. The climatic dreams spoke of this but I paid no mind.. It's a surreal feeling really, a timely conversation.

    You're smart. Too smart. You over think, because your mind moves at a million miles a minute.. You're sad, because you're not fooled by the world like everyone else. You don't get along with most people, because they just don't look at things the way yo do. You think you're dumb...

    I wrote this a while back

    while sorting through some feelings. it's called Closure; A time will always be suspended, wounds that need to be healed and mended, you and I. We had no ending, our hearts drifting, no closure no goodbye. I gave you all my life, promises broken, and I will always wonder why?

    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...

    Volcano. The irritating moaning,

    coming from the smoke of an eruption of the Gods's mouths, leading by Gaea, the leader of the ruthless of all, the one, who always gets away with more murders. The gas, screaming out of its insides up at the air, inviting all human emotions and nolife to fight to breathe...

    I believe a lady should be treated like royalty.

    With a flourish as the door is opened for her to pass. A kind smile as a hat is tipped in greeting. By a gentle man who dresses with style so that she feels sexy being on his arm. And if that lady allows you to see her as only a lover should, a gentle man should spend hours...
