    Fear & Trust

    I find it very difficult to find the balance between fear and trust..... I mean I have a past and people were not always the most trustworthy and they hurt me in various ways, and I know trust is the basis of a loving relationship, but sometimes through all youve been through it...

    I need to relax and not psych myself out as much BUT I can't keep up with this procrastination either or I will never be successful.

    Like Catching Steam

    The same feeling. When I wake up in the morning, before I fall asleep, when I have a quiet few moments to think. The feeling that something just isn't right.I'm happy. I'm in the middle of my teenage life, and I've put up with more than I'm comfortable with during those years...

    Inclination

    She fought the urge to clear the ground. To look out and see nothing. She knew her stillness would intensify if she waited. She had to release fear. Even though its columns were consuming the edges of her mind. Possessing like a spark behind her eyes. The glimmer of silent...

    ...now that is the understatement of the new millenium. I'm not sure I ever had any. Maybe a bit at some points here and there but I think, generally, not too much. I get bored easily. I can't sit still for long. Always looking for something new. Everything always seems so...

    Thoughts As They Came...

    An odd thing. I don't know what it is. Just a strange feeling. When I close my eyes, I see it. I can feel it. It's there, in my minds eye. Like a vision of sorts. A wall. It's in front of me. Cold and tall. Cement blocks. Cold and gray. I turn, there is another. I look and...
