    I Like To Write

    It may be eccentric writing...or silly...or serious...or angry...but however I choose, I feel I have the right to that self-expression.  I enjoy it...but as a person who struggles with a "people-pleasing" instinct, it's hard sometimes to write just for me.  Some folks...

    Love Reading and Writing

    I have always loved reading and writing. Since I was in second grade to be precise. In school I've always got good grades in math and science the logical part but I've always felt comfortable in language arts and AP English and all that. Good books and hood ideas are all I'm...

    I'm tossing and turning not able to get

    comfortable. Everything hurts or aches and my bed is hard or too soft no matter which way I lay. Rolling over I tuck my body pillow between my legs and hug it close to my chest. I tug the blanket up just enough to cover my shoulders but allow the moving air from the fan to...

    I know you like as well

    as I know myself. I know the many emotions that change your face and the manner in which you carry yourself. I feel the presence of your writhing anger; the distraught sadness; the ebbing of all stress as it washes away. Your anxiety strangles the words from my mouth and resists...

    There is a silence in the water.

    The worlds noises are dulled and the current rocks to its own lullaby. Clicks and muffled voices float above me as I float rooted to the bottom of the pool. If I could breathe underwater, I could stay there nestled for hours without surfacing. In the tub the warmth envelops me...

    "Let the Words Flow"

    I really like to read and write. I love reading fiction novels, and writing stories from time to time. I'm on fanfiction (under "smileyz") and I always have a problem when I write fanfictions (or just stories in general, but I mostly write fanfics). I get into "the...

    An Unfinished Business

    Today I will sit and listen, To all they have to say; Laughing and talking with them, I will enjoy our special day. Soon they will be grown up, And I shall be alone and old; Oh! How I will miss them, Our house will feel so cold. If only I could hold them, Like a baby still in my...
