    We connected last night

    for the first time in half a lifetime. We talked and laughed and danced through the years sharing our lives my childhood friend. I was unaware a voice could be comforting soothing and yet tantalizing. We are so different and yet the same. Half touched memories of our youth...

    that it' been about a year

    since i've been clean from se;f harm but it's always creeping in the back of my mind all day, everyday, taunting me. Although, I never see myself acting on it.

    I remember the time I came around the corner

    and the spaghetti flied off my plate onto the floor. It was supposed to be funny but I only remembered you stood behind me and grabbed fistfuls of my hair with both hands pulling hard and shook me around like dirty laundry. I cried so hard I couldn't breathe. I remember...

    I remember when I was I young boy my mother had

    trouble getting us to do chores. My dad would approach the problem by giving us a list of chores to do. I would happily do my dad's chore list carefully and with out question. I don't think the difference was because it was from my dad. I think the difference was that the list...

    Right now I picture him in

    that old barbers chair; unchanged, his white beard blotted with chunks of bright yellow paint. In his frail weathered hands he cradles a block of wood. Back-and-forth he rocks and with each tap of his foot, bare against the marble flooring, he carves into the block. An...

    Silent car rides across the plains of Kansas

    when I would curl up in the passenger-side floorboard in the warmth of the heater and let my imagination run freely till I heard the wheels hit the rocky road that led to my grandmother's house.

    Before all the drugs,

    before all the alcohol, before ruining my life. I was so hurt, and depressed, and I wanted to shut everything out. That’s the last thing I remembered before I began my discovery with drugs. I wanted to escape the feeling of pain, heartbreak, and …that is the real last time I...

    A Bad Boy

    I was a good boy. Had lots to do with bad boys when I was young; they seemed to be everywhere, but less so recently. I often think about the bad boys of my youth and wonder what's happened to them. Have they become 'good'? I can't imagine what my wife's uncle was like as a...

    Mum hated spiders, so did I.

    As a particularly evil punishent when I was a child she'd make me go outside into the garage and use the end of a broom to remove cobwebs. It made me absolutely hysterical. I'd be crying and begging her, anything but that, but it was futile. As you walked in there was a dank...

    The Little Store.

    When I was a child, our five room house had

    In infant school when I was around 5

    or 6, there was a little boy called Jason in one of my classes. He wore glasses, was very shy like me, and had a patch over one of his eyes. One day I blurted out something silly over what the sticker on his face was for, and since then we became the best of friends, and I used...
