    Shutting The World Out...or Have They Already Shut Me Out?

    Today I've felt a little numb. I've felt like shutting the world out. But I think it got there first, And has shut me out instead. My whole body feels numb, I have no emotion, Except a few tears. I want to shout from my balcony, Somethings I would never say. I want to...

    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...

    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...

    I Stay Confused

    Everyone has an opinion and usually my head is running in circles while feeling like its stuck in mud at the same time. I think it's easier to keep my emotions to myself rather than to burden anyone. Once in a while I will talk to someone about things but never really let them...

    "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...
