    Every day feels like a roulette table spinning

    not knowing where my mind will go. Where the ball will land is unknown. I Lay a 50 on the table and place a bet on the day because the symptoms they are shown. How do I overcome the random mixture that is played if the days escape is still a minds game? -I wrote this about...

    The smoke in my lounges is getting heavy,

    puffing real heavily lately, anxiety building up, I'm always being treated like just a ****. They say love is blind, the lust is blinding me, as I snort another line I lie to myself and say it's fine, it's a part of life, you're still swallowed up inside my mental, I think it's...

    A Weaker Soul

    { I only cry when it rains } { No one knows that I'm in pain }  { I only laugh when I"m insane } { There is nothing left that I can claim } { My life has been just like a train } { It has wrecked and I'm  to blame } { The cars go by on first and main } { But i am walking...

    The sun seems brighter today The ocean more

    I know you must be out there.

    But where are you? How will I find you? I must look far from home to find you. I might see you on a walk. Is that where I'll find you? I dream of our meeting. Will you kiss me? I wonder everyday. When will our paths cross? I dream and I look, waiting to catch a moment...

    By Me, For My Childhood Abuser....

    I was just a child, and you a man, now I'm an adult, look at me if you can. I'm no longer the child, You sought to destroy, the innocent life, you claimed as your toy. now let's see you hurt me, let's see you try, but you can't hurt me, as I'm stronger inside. You stole the child...

    Mary Beth Evans Mary Beth Evans was the rarest

    My Garden

    A venture into the deepest part of the woods.

    All of our 'children' are fluffy

    Bout Of Darkness

    Those stars on high, those sorrows stars.

    Not wishes to be granted, but tears of the forgotten. Wishes that didn't come true, ephemera to remind of ruin. Beautiful memories of pain. Sorrows shining stars.
