I Sometimes Feel Like Shutting Out The World

We all do sometimes. 509 People

    The Last Night. The Last Day. This Moment Now....

    And when the door clicks shut and closes this time, everything will change forever. And when you walk away slowly, this realization hits you like a ton of bricks. And though you are not now on your knees, this is what may happen in the next few moment, minutes, hours, days...

    "Welcome To My Life...You Don'T Know What It'S Like"

    How many times do you go through a range of emotions, and end up with "whatever?" Some things get so old, so wearing on the nerves, so sigh worthy, that it's like a tornado of frustration spinning out of control taking every ounce of energy in its path. Further, expressing ones...

    In My Own Little World

    On some days I just feel like shutting out the world and being alone. Some times life gets a little too much for me and I just need to be alone with my thoughts and a 12-pack of beer, and of course some good music to space out to when being alone. As I get older I see myself...

    Goodbye, My Mother, My Ghost.

    How can you say goodbye to a ghost? A mere whisper of a woman who is my mother. A woman who has been lost for years now. A woman who spends nearly all time searching for her home while in here home. A woman who used to be as strong as a man physically. A woman who raised seven...
