    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...

    It's okay to be broken,

    but don't let brokenness define who you are. It's okay to be sad, but don't let sadness ruin your happy moments. It's okay to make mistakes, but don't let those mistakes haunt you. It's okay to be wrong, as long as you can admit to it. It's okay to feel unclean, as long as you...

    Hush the lights and cease the sound.

    .. Let your soul be embodied by the lining of the cello... Captivate your spirit; civilize your cells; beguile your heart; endure passion; paint your reality upon the insulated depths of dreams... Kiss the lips of bête noire... Serenade your imperfections a Farwell, my dear.

    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.

    I keep trying to write a blog,

    but I'm not sure what to write about. I've tried hockey, short stories, and the mafia. I need ideas, maybe a goal I can accomplish and write about. I would say traveling, but I kind of need to travel to write about it ha. So anybody give me ideas on what to blog about. Please.

    Even when I do talk it just confuses people.

    Or they don't listen. Why bother people when I can confide in a piece of paper? This question comes from both sides of a half-hearted conversation one confused the other sarcastic. Writing is one of the best ways for me to speak. It's not all up front and I can bend or utterly...
