    It Drives Me Insane

    I need something to preoccupy my brain. I can't stand just sitting there alone with my thoughts. I'm not one for watching tv but if it can stop me from thinking too much then I do it. When I'm alone my mind starts to wander into very bad places. I start to think of the negative...

    Confusion

    When alone with my thoughts they wonder. I can start out thinking of a list of some hardware for repairs, then end up with thoughts of remodeling a room to make a loving wife happy. I can go from the thoughts of making a list of flower seeds to make the lawn look nice, to the...

    The Emotional Ones Anyway

    I think A LOT. Possibly too much, about everything. I am very much alone with these thoughts, and most of them are not interesting to others. I can live with that, but the thoughts I have when my relationship is out of balance, is like liquid fire in my mind, and I can only get...

    On The Trail

    I ride and race mountain bikes. To train for this requires that I spend a long time riding my bike on an often deserted trail. When I am totally alone at home , I usually listen to music while doing homework and when I'm done I watch TV or play videogames. When I'm on a bicycle 5...

    But There Is Some Humor

    I'm a thinker. I like to learn and then I like to think about what I learn to decide for myself how to deal with different things. Well, being alone there is no way to bounce ideas off of someone to see if they sound right or even get a different perspective from someone else...

    Lonely And Alone

    Was sitting alone again on the porch last evening enjoying the warmth at the end of the day and a lingering thought returned to my mind. I will die lonely and alone... Was mowing the huge lawn before the rain came today. While I rode around looking at the half kept flower...

    My Tornado Brain

    I Don't Want To Think Something Bad

    I have spent a lot of my young years alone. It lead me to be a bitter sad person with bad intentions. I use to self harm and think the worst of myself. Well, I have done a complete turn around on those actions and feelings. However I still have a small bad thought when I spend to...

    Alone Could Be The Only Way

    Sometimes being alone with thought leads you into a deep chasm that leads to only more thought. I've had an unsettling thought recently that has left me in just such a place. It's a lonely place. A deep hole with vast caves and dark tunnels that seem to lead in many directions...
