    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...

    The elevator was very crowded tonight.

    You pulled me close in front of you to make room for others. Your left hand pulled me tight against you. Your right hand sliding up my thigh as you whisper "Baby, I want you now". I could feel you harden against me, which turned me on instantly as you knew it would. The elevator...

    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...

    Most of the time, I find it humiliating to

    verbalize my thoughts, since they are intellectual or have to do with inquiry of a person, event or idea, so i write on paper and computer. Writing gives me a chance to put out all of my ideas, since I find it hard to actually talk about my ideologues to people in my life...

    that writing was essential for hermental health. I agree with this as writing is something I love. It doesn't matter what it is about, personal experiences, thoughts, opinions or just the need to get my inner feelings down in words, I feel it's an essential part of my well being...

    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...

    ... At least I try. I am not any good at small

    talk. And I am not super great at conversation. So I try to share myself through writing. Sadly, unless I wear a chalk board around my neck..? Writing isn't a particularly functional means of relating to folks I'm a daily basis. So I am usually quiet.

    I have learned to simply refrain from
