I Like to Write About How I Feel

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 6,386 People

    Ever tried going through your old journals

    and being astounded by yourself? Almost like you can't believe that was you. I read an article on writing about how you feel and aside from improving your emotional state, it helps hone your writing skills. I have a fancy journal which I have not used for a long time as I...

    Ah, love! I long for its gentle,

    yet burning, grip around my putrid chilling heart. I wonder if it’s cold enough to give frostbites to whomever is gripping it, but wouldn’t that depend on how hot her love is for me? Will she provide the long awaited warmth I am in need for, or rather, crave for? Or will...

    I'm not quite sure what to call this,

    I was caught off guard by her comment,

    that she had never heard of people using another as a last ditch option to not be alone when their friends are not there. At that moment, I found myself angry yet wishing I was her. To not know what it feels like to be alone, watching others go about happily hugging their...

    I'm a paradox. I want to be happy,

    but I think of things that make me sad. I'm lazy, yet ambitious. I don't like myself, but I also love who I am. I say I don't care, but I really do. I crave attention, but reject it when it comes my way. I'm a conflicted contradiction. If I can't figure myself out, there's no...

    I really enjoy writing.

    particularly when I'm upset. I love venting my anger and releasing it onto paper instead of it lingering in my mind. It makes me feel relieved to sort my thoughts and feelings out even when they seem ridiculous and not be judged for it.

    You say it's love. You say it hurts

    so much. But could it really be love when all you've done from the start is be afraid? The fear of ending up hurt never left your mind. It made you vicious. The fear crept towards your heart until it became cruel. It taught you to strike back, to strike first. It didn't give him...

    Ever wondered how it feels like to be cut with

    a razor on your chest, a little, everyday? How it feels like watching your own blood pour out of your very own flesh? Ever wondered about the pain? She felt that every second by the thought of you. Why did you mend her when all you had to do was to shatter and cut and brake...

    who feel nothing because they're in so much pain. but there are others who look up to those who can STILL feel because they don't remember how to anymore.

    Rain drops on a parched desert.

    Drifting between the sand dunes, a zephyr whispered your presence. Of eyes that peer into frailties and see vitality. Of a mind that devours desperate words and forges perceptivity. Levity that crumbles the child-ego and rouses the man. Of tenderness that embraces the dark to...

    I hate feeling like I do. I try all the **** they say to help but I'm still sinking. sinking, drowning, gasping, choking, sputtering. my chest aches. my eyes are swollen. I just want back on shore, out of this sea of despair.

    I don't have a single person in my life that I could trust fully, or expect to understand me. Not so very long ago, I thought I had, but life had a very cruel lesson to teach me, and the experience was far too painful to put into words at the time. A few months have past, and...

    Your words float, while mine sink.

    You'll forever be safely adrift, but I'll drown knowing in despair that to hope is an illusion. Fate accepted. I'll be under, next to, above, and within a perpetual darkness... You aren't aware of my suffering because you can see the sky. Why look down?

    My life sometimes seems too crazy to be true.

    A friend told me today I should write a book chronicling my life, my marriage and our coming our story. I think she may be right. Our story is a most unusual one but would also make for a good read! You can't make some of this up, trust me :-)

    I'm not saying I'm lazy. I just love the fact that I won't have to deal with my problems. Even if I only get at least 5 hours of sleep. I can dream of things I want to happen. Even though my actual life is composed of drunks and drug addicts. Sleep is peaceful and safe. I love...

    Words can be powerful things.

    They can break hearts, join souls, cut like a knife and make panties wet. I prefer words that inevitably lead you to my bed, words that I've written that depict the dirty things and each little box we ticked. Words that describe all we've yet to try, of all we must still do.

    you've never had to throw a punch; your words

    left bruises on my soul. when I apologize for everything I say, what's the point in speaking at all? I never imagined you'd regret me. I never wanted to become a mistake. when apologies become excuses, what's left to say?
