    I see it in them, their eyes dull,

    half lifeless, a slight sadness to their beauty, a hidden language of their own their body tight, ridged at times, they move in an uncomfortable way at times, and other times they are at ease, but there is something slightly a miss about them, They move around people...

    Shattered Dreams

    how can i not have a place in my heart for all the broken souls, when i am too, a broken person? the greatest lesson of suffering, is that it gives us a brutal recognition that we are all fragile,all incomplete and we all experience the devastation of loss. but no matter what...

    Fault Lines

    Maybe because deep down inside I am broken too, and I recognize that in others? Or because I'm someone who feels the need to help...heal?  I'm not sure why, but I find myself drawn to people who are holding it together, but still have cracks, fractures, fault lines, waiting to...

    I've been broken a time

    or two myself. I think most of us have.  Sometimes it's just a little chip around the edge and sometimes a crack to the very core that makes you stop and wonder if you can even be fixed again.  And if you are fixed are you going to put together as someone quite different from...

    "the Hour Of Truth"

    One hour devoted to the pursuit of beauty and love is worth a full century of glory given by the frightened weak to the strong. From that hour comes man's truth and during that century truth sleeps between the restless arms of disturbing dreams. In that glorious hour the soul...

    And I'm Growing Fond Of Broken People, As I See That I Am One Of Them"

    (MuteMath, "Pins and Needles"..) I have been broken, have lost hope. I've been down on my luck. I understand, I know what it's like. And I don't want anyone to feel that way. Even those who show it by acting tough, pushing people away? That's more the reason to coax them towards...

    The Gift To Help Heal

    For as long as I can remember broken people have been drawn to me. It use to freak me out when people I didn't know would share their pain with me. I didn't understand because I don't trust people so It always surprised and amazed me how much people always trusted me. After...

    Acceptance
