    The last holdout of consciousness,

    in a yawning gulf into which thoughts are painted. Shadow breaths dance upon ephemeral skin. Memories of graceful shapes that bring fleeting sensations of a phantom touch. The embrace of a warm ghost. Sputtering synapses form a crude replica of the infinitely complex scent of...

    I just found out my boyfriend's friends have

    been pressuring him into breaking up with me because I'm a "normie." When they are all hipster weirdos. And my boyfriend told them he will and then he told them he did so they think we aren't together anymore. Which he says was to avoid the situation but that makes me feel...

    You sort of think maybe it's just to damn hard,

    or maybe I've asked the wrong friggin people. How hard is it to give as good as you get? How long do you have to look around earth to find that one person who will do for you what you are willing to do for them?I don't need to be placated with thoughts of "Oh you're so..." I'm...

    One of the best things in life is finding

    someone who knows all of your flaws, mistakes, and weaknesses, but still thinks you're completely amazing.

    I know I do, and I know everyone else does

    as well. Even though many of us find ourselves pushing the closest people away, we always have that deep hope that they'll come back. That they'll return, but there's always the potential there will come a time when they don't. So cherish the people you have! Don't only cherish...

    My wife and son went to see Paddington last

    night. Midway through the movie I looked over at both of them and felt a surge of love for them. It's moments like that remind me why I'm alive.

    I'm a stay at home mom

    and full time student. My husband has recently started saying mean things about my parenting and about my looks. I have no close friends to talk to, and feel very isolated and alone. I want out, but don't want to be a statistic or put my son through a divorce.

    Did you ever think that it is possible to sleep

    with someone without having a physical relation? Just laying there, talking for hours about how we feel, what we love, memories etc. Just enjoying to be with someone.

    After so many years of devoting myself to one

    person... It's painfully hard to know that they've changed. And I no longer have what once was. I want to be held and cuddled. Soft kisses and tender whispers. I want to know that I still matter...?

    Does it ever bother you

    when someone chooses someone else over you? Does it ever make you wonder whether you knew them at all? Does it make you wonder if you actually matter? People who have known them for half as long get their priority twice as often as I do. People who have put half as much effort...

    then what makes you ever feel like there's any motivation to continue? What need is there to live if you have no love with anyone at all and you're just existing? Yet, if you're not loved, then either you're hated by others or not cared for at all. If someone did like you, they...
