    Today I woke up very groggy to my sister

    banging on my door once again. I snapped at her to scram. I didn't know what time it was but I knew it was early. Passed out again. I woke up again a few hours later but didn't feel any better rested, and half snoozed a while longer. No use. Tired from the minute I woke up...

    I remember the teachings

    and beliefs I held in youth.  If there was pain, hurt, left marks.....then it was abusive and wrong.  It's really not that simple, humans are strange creatures.  We have cravings and desires for things that don't allow us to be pigeon holed by such simplistic...

    Thief Always attracted by sight,

    the shapes my eyes never fail to find. A quick study, crowded room, cannot be rude to those with which I’m supposed to be engaged. Few moments pass before the eyes are drawn again, keeping track of her location. He seems to be less than attentive. I recognize the coldness...

    She doesn't belong here,

    not really. This place, with its locked doors and easy living is reserved for those very old and dying, not her. Her hair is too brown, her skin too smooth and soft for here to possibly belong here. She sits in her chairs and stares blankly at a wall. Her gaze wanders, not...

    Not much went down today.

    Woke up as usual to the sounds of my sisters waking up in the next room. I actually felt decently well-rested. I lolled about before getting ready for the day. We wandered down to our family's suites, gathered up whoever was ready and we left to get food. My little sisters and...

    Come With MeI wonder

    He sat on the edge of my bed

    I look at my twin and I smile.

    I'm floating a few feet above her, and I twirl lazily through the air until I'm upside down. "Come fly with me, sister." But she's too busy digging a knife into the ground. She's grumbling to herself as she stabs the earth. "Let them come, let them come....let them try me...

    My friends all know that I raise boa's

    and python's as a hobby, a fascination since childhood. A couple of weeks ago I was bitten, not uncommon in the hobby. I had barely cracked open her cage when she immediately latched onto my thumb. A very unusual act from this demure creature. I've thought a great deal about...

    Today was decidedly more unpleasant

    than the day before, and it was largely due to the presence of our father. He had arrived late the night before and would be causing us trouble as early as the next morning. It was another night of little sleep due to the heat of the room (I lowered the room temp to 60 and it...

    too much chaos to process. Chaos is beating away the demons, but I feel them lurking. With no quiet time to surrender to them, it's a raging sea inside. Distractions are nice, but I can't focus....

    and leave. Not just the room, but the building, the town, even leave the state. Most of the time, I fight that urge, squash it down, ignore the tightening in my chest and the fact that I can't breathe. I have obligations here, people who need me and I cannot just run away. But...

    The Way You Have Me

    without warning. Following me everywhere I go. I struggle with you. I try to ignore. I find moments of fear in you. At times there is a weakness and I go to your place. I regret, no. I don't, I fight you again. Wondering what you want with me. Are you real? Are you good for me...

    Under dark wispy lashes is a place no one dares

    to venture. Silence is the key to her lunacy. Slow and deep she pulls you further than you've ever been. Quiet moments, you become the pilot. Every fiber of her being comes to life, as you're allowed free reign. All alone she unshackles a moan. Her touch becomes your...
