I Have So Many Unfulfilled Desires

    Time To Give Up ?

    I had lots of unfulfilled desires, ever since I was a little kid.  But I always had hope that, one day, one or the other will come true.  This is one thing which changes with age. As my 59th birthday comes closer, I must acknowledge that some desires won;t come true...

    Things I Would Like

    I have done a great deal in my life.  I have "achieved" some great things in my opinion.  Yet, I am at this point in my life wondering why I am so alone? Where is the man, my lover in my life, my companion. I have been divorced years ago.  I have had...

    Who Am I, Really?

    I've known about the Experience Project for years, fascinated by it but never shared any experience before. Not sure why, but tonight I just felt like reaching out. I share the experience of ‘having unfulfilled desires.’ I was raised to believe my worth as a man derived...

    All I Desire

    I have desires that can't be expressed in words. Touch me on the inside and you'll see. Exploding stars and still waters, fires of hell, light of heaven, creation and destruction...I want to embody all of these.

    Tainted Love

    I have so many unfulfilled desires and wants that it's sad sometimes.  Most nights, I just kind of sit alone thinking of all the things I desire and want, unable to achieve most of them.  For example, I want to fall in love, yet right now, I'm starting to think that...

    Throw Another Desire On the Fire.

    I wish to tap the unknown like a keg of beer and dispense it liberally to the thirsty minds of the world. I want to make my life from the clay of wisdom fired by the flames of understanding and justice. I desire to be payed handsomely simply for not murdering indiscriminately. I...

    Learn how to ride a bike again. I won't say as a child I was never loved or cared. I enjoyed my childhood quite a lot. It was fun, me and my older brother we always had a good time. Even now we cherish those beautiful innocent memories. But along with these very beautiful...

    Unfulfilled desires..

    .dreams , of these I have many. Why are they unfulfilled and not a reality? One word...fear. It is fear that has kept these dreams out of my grasp and left to flounder and perish without ever having had a chance to be brought to life. Fear is the greatest dream killer of all...

    Make It All Feel Ok.

    There's so many things I want. These desires. That feeling to be touched, to be loved. To just have someone there when everything goes wrong so that I don't have to do it all on my own. I can imagine how ****** life will be if I never find that piece of my puzzle. That last...

    Dreams and none. Made up in the spur of the moment? Some. But God, it's like they already know what it's like to be scratched by my comforter, or too warm in the middle of the night. Traveling, too. I'll do whatever I want to in this life.
