    The Wrong Crowd

    So, I've been having a really hard time lately. My ex- friends have been saying stuff about me that hurts really bad. I know we aren't friends anymore, but why can't you leave it at that? Why do you have to spread rumors and cause unwanted drama?

    Just Hit Me Already!

    Time and time again I've felt the lash of words.  Words meant to hurt, to wound, to damage.  It got so bad that I'd deliberately try to provoke the person yelling to just hit me.  Physical pain is something I could understand, something that went away quickly. ...

    I Sure Do Wish

    I wish people would think before saying some of the things they say. Speaking your mind each minute is not the best thing to do. Think before you open your mouth and dash someone's hopes. Some people are easily influenced and can be torn to ribbons if you tell them that what they...

    The Monster That I Love.

    The man I fell in love with is the monster I will never leave. If love could cost a life, surely I have almost paid in full. Keep the advice, and the refund because this heart of mine would never allow me to turn my back on the only person I've ever met who understands who I...

    The Worst Weapon Of All

    It is quite startling to acknowledge the power of words.  Although they are nothing more than sounds and symbols that we attach a specific definition or reaction to...once we have mentally accepted their meaning, they possess the power to impact you, whether it is positively or...

    I Should Know, I'm A Wordsmith

    Or at least I consider myself a wordsmith. I'm far more gifted at using the written word like a scalpel, than spoken. And yes, the scalpel part is important too, as opposed to a sword or large blunt instrument, which are designed to cripple or maim, instead of a small, precise...

    No, Absolutely Not!

    My sister, need I say more? She hates me and says stupid things all the time, I feel sad and maybe it is one of the reasons that my confidence is junk, when I was younger I was always alone, people laughed at me and called me disturbed, funny? No, absolutely not!
