    The Light Of You

    The blankets are cold against my skin. Thoughts of you warm my body. No one is here beside me tonight. I am wrapped in your strong arms. The silence in the room is deafening. You whisper softly to me, “I’m here, Baby”. I am…alone; on my own. Your fingertips...

    I feel nothing. Yet, I am overwhelmed with

    emotions to my very core. How can someone feel so engulfed with excitement and happiness yet be so deeply saddened by the same situation? I am in a haze. Shuffling thru days like a deck of cards. Reality has become so distant...I'm unsure if I even know what that is anymore...

    My boyfriend is a heroin addict.

    We met in the summer, and after two days I knew he was the one for me. I have never met anyone who I felt such an instant connection with. I have never been able to be myself so freely around anyone even my own family. It was as if I had known him my entire life. After a few...

    When I least expected it,

    someone came into my life and helped me open my eyes to things I knew I needed to change and also reminded me of things that make me happy. I'd forgotten who I am because I've been so busy trying to make others happy. I now know what I need to do. It won't be easy but in the...

    Ives and the Wolf. They made me see what was

    always there. A beautiful reality. Kindness. Laughter. Heart. And they both left so quickly. It's not their fault. They were told to leave. No goodbyes...no trace. Almost like they were never there. Except Ives left a note, knowing only my eyes would see. I will always...

    I am not exaggerating

    when I say I have met someone who has changed my life! Yes, I have met someone here who has COMPLETELY changed my life, he has literally turned me upside down and he doesn’t even know it! Last thing I said to him was the exact opposite of what I am now, which is that I can’t...

    When I Spoke to Him On the Phone and Then We Met For the First Time. I Knew He Would Change My Life

    My boyfriend and I are both in our mid to late 30's and I am not ashamed to admit that we met on a dating service. It was 12-29-08 around 8:30p. We and I am not into photos of possible boyfriends, because the picture that they send is sometimes a picture from 10 years ago...

    Stranger In My Bathtub.

    My routine is simple. I sleep little and irregularly due to being a shift-worker. I eat whenever I am hungry ( I am a snacker); I sleep when I am tired (for the most part). Gypsy-like in that I can play while others work; work when others play- a certain freedom in that way. I...

    Who Knew....

    Lonely and alone.. Who knew that one night on a chat I would meet my best friend.. I'd say that's luck. I thought I was alone in my thoughts and dreams. Life has been full of laughter and happiness now. And I wouldn't change a thing. He's what I need..

    You changed my life forever. Touched the life of me you have...You burrowed deep inside of me, made me feel like I was good enough. You loved me. I loved you...I was happy. But now I'm sadder than I've ever been. I feel dead inside without you...Even when you message me now...

    I met them recently. Name,

    age, gender, all irrelevant. What is relevant is the fact that God put this person in my life for a reason. I was in a fairly dark place before I met them. I didn't know how to push through and stay strong through all the doctors visits and tests that never seemed to get me any...

    I have to say this, today someone made me step

    back a bit and made me think why I was being someone else when I could have been myself, yet after I changed to myself, she still is alright with me. I'm honestly sorry for have done what I have done, and from today on I speak nothing but the truth. :)

    His Eyes

    It was his laugh I heard first. I looked up to the bluest eyes I'd ever seen and the kindest smile.  It was his eyes that captured me, almost like endless pools of mystery.  Little did I know at 13 I was going to fall in love with him.  That he would become my world, and my...

    I had a revelation late last year.

    It was at the lowest point in my life. I was starting to feel that it didn’t matter if I continued living. Would anyone care if I was gone, or would they even notice? I remember being at work, and I was up in a lift 120 feet up. I didn’t feel afraid in the slightest. I have...
