    Something Is

    I used to be so content in my life and then everything fell apart. I was worth something. Now? Not so much. I know what's missing. Purpose and meaning. I had a family and was the central core and now? Husband is off with another and my kids are all grown with kids of their own. I...

    "Life is like a long rehearsal

    for a play that will never begin"-quote from the movie Amelie. It's a sad feeling when we do so much and anticipate that something great will happen only to be left standing all alone in the crowd with that feeling of emptiness and disappointment. Sometimes, I feel like I had...

    I Don't Know What It Is

    Ever since I was in the third grade, being alone in my house was the greatest feeling in the world. There was no one to yell at me or talk to me like I'm idiot. I could just play music and video games without a care in the world. Even with people around I feel alone because I...

    Beautiful blue skies brings a reflection to her

    eyes of a dream that once was, always beyond reach, so close yet so far away, right at her fingertips, breezes that brush her lips, passing by as if a sailing ship, dreams and goals crashed by waves. Visions of that glowing sunset just beyond the horizons... Forgotten all that...

    I've Never Felt Whole

    I had a difficult childhood. I was forced to grow up way too fast, my mother was always jumping from mood to mood and I felt responsible for my younger siblings. I don't remember a time where I felt truly calm and cherished growing up. Things were always chaotic and I ended up...

    I once stepped out of my comfort zone

    and expanded my reach. I grasped onto something that felt good. I tried to make it mine but it wasn't mine to be had. I had to let go. I've since then come back into my bubble, but now the area inside is bigger. Too big for simply me. It leaves me longing for something I can...
