    Getting Tired of It

    I try really hard to be open with people & let them know the real me.  I don't seem to get any satisfaction from doing this anymore.  When people don't trust you back or care enough to tell you what is in their heart, what's the point? I feel I let myself hang out...

    Empty...

    I don’t really know how to express what I am feeling – how can I possibly release this pain without it tearing at my soul and leaving me in pieces…I have held onto it very tightly believing that no-one wanted to know…I don’t think anyone really...

    For Lease: Beside Frayed And Jagged Heart

      I have this space beside my heart that’s up for rent it seems.      The contents are tossed around a bit and out go all my dreams. The embers all, but, slumber the ashes mount not burn; At thirty- five and counting I was sure this...

    I'Ll Be Your Honey Bee

    Isn't it funny how certain songs hit home and that which you may not have listened to initially, but now has some sort of meaning that speaks to the heart of whatever exists or what we want to exist. Blake Shelton's Honey Bee kind of speaks to this concept. Nothing like the...

    Self Re-filling

    I've poured my heart out on quite a few occasions ... I did it again recently in a blog I wrote at the weekend. But my heart isn't empty as a result ... it's full ... full to bursting with love and appreciation for all those friends who were so kind and supportive.  I am...

    No Refills Maybe a New Cup of Java

    Well I have poured my heart to you. I have given you my all. I have tried time and time again to understand why you lied to me. It hurts so bad to know that you can lie about something that is so precious to me, US. I sometimes wonder if this relationship matters to you as much...

    Cant Say I Didnt "Try"

    I poured my heart out to him-- I probably even boosted his ego cause I needed to tell him how I felt about him & all he can do was just pretty much ignore what I had to say. It hurt that he couldn't give a damn & was in such a hurry to hang up with me. I just couldn't...

    Does It Come In Bulk?

    I've poured my heart out so many times over the years that I couldn't even begin to count them.  I think it goes beyond empty sometimes, it creates a vacuum that tries to suck the life right out of a person. I've done this over and over, until finally there just isn't...
