    Body Language Can Say A Thousand Words.. I Wish Sometimes People Would Just Spit It Out.

    As well about good feelings as bad feelings.. too many people keep their emotions locked up inside.. and for some people their feelings are written all over their face..like my face. When someone looks at me with strange eyes that seem to say "Should I tell her? hm. i'd better...

    Never An Empty Canvas

    Are words that important? Does a silence say everything we need to hear? Perhaps... Words are so good or so bad that it is impossible to live without them. The certainty that many of them can bring is better than silence any doubts that may leave. And by trying to figure out...

    Turn Around

    I used to think love could help my depression. I wondered if I would ever meet anyone who would love me enought to blot my sadness away. I had to finally give up on my last relationship b/c I felt I needed more from my bf than he was willing to give. I felt so sad. I always tried...

    I am mired in this vagary Where our harsh made hearts Relent for one more wandering sojourn. You are mindful of me We rise, enjoy, fall and pick back up. We live similarly Saunter the same beat I with you, and you near me The wind embraces our shapes Our hair wild with...

    A Letter Unspoken

    To an old love,You were the first person I gave my heart to. An unbruised heart, it was, then.It's only fitting, I suppose.Anyway. In honestly, I probably said a good deal to you. More than I should have. More than I wanted to. I told you how I felt about you. I told you all of...

    Quite often, saying something would only open a

    can of worms which can spread and infest in many directions. So is it worth the bother!!?

    Words Unsaid Can Become Actions Screamed Loudly.

    For me, I can't put my feelings into words and wish I could just scream at the top of my lungs, "This is what I'm feeling and I need you to just understand." I think every so often I wonder what would happen if I said the things I really meant. I refuse to express myself at times...

    I made the decision not to leave things unsaid.  Life is too short.  If you love someone - tell them.  Don't keep it to yourself.  Love is far too big to carry on your own ... Remind those you love that you love them ... what greater gift can we give...

    If Only It Didn't

    Silence between two people, can be filled with the deafening screams of words that go unsaid.  On the tip of the tongue sit the most important things, the most precious things, and all those things that want to be said, but never are.  As eyes glance around, they...

    Way Too Much

    I wonder, many times, what would have happened if I had done this or that differently. I agree that if something is going to hurt someone, and it can go unsaid, it's better that it does. Some things are better left unsaid, if they are not going to make a difference...

    I wish people we so scared of saying what is on their mind. There would be so many less regrets that way. I guess the most easily thing i learned in my life was to never be afraid to ask questions, no matter how silly the question. If it is a yes or no question, the worst...

    Still Don't Know Why

    We were friends. Had dinner at each other's houses. Kept each other's kids over night. Even had Easter with your whole family. Then, it just stopped. Our girls are still friends, but not as close. We see each other all the time at soccer games, school, with other friends. We...

    Dear Mr. Sylph

    I Write Because I Can't Say It

    I've never been very good at saying what I mean so instead I used to keep my mouth shut. I never saw a problem with it until all of these things I believed I couldn't say started to eat me inside. Each little thought, each little idea was like a knife in my head so I weren't to...

    Too Much For Too Long

    When the unsaid things go unspoken for so long, it builds and turns into an issue. So much in life does go unsaid and I think a lot hinges on pride. If we just buckled down and said what was on our minds half the time, life would be so much easier.I wish I had wisdom. Does anyone...

    7 And Counting

    I think what can cause the biggest issues in my relationship is what goes unsaid. Better yet, what goes unsaid and then gets blasted out in deafening screaming matches. My boyfriend has grown shy of me and tiptoes around me. I blame myself for this, as I can only ask why would a...

    What Goes Unsaid Should Stay Unsaid

    I believe the things I don't say are for the best. Somethings should never leave my head. There are things in my head that would shock and frighten those I am thinking about. Keeping these things in my head is the best way I know how to stay out of jail. Sometimes I do have...

    Words Which Make You Vulnerable

    Each time you write or talk you become vulnerable to others comments. If you are of the right class, right sex, right race, right group, right age, your words are accepted. Those who are not as fortunate to be in the proper class of people will have a much harder time being...

    Even For Someone Who Talks So Much

    It's amusing that even for people like me, who probably say far too much, it pales in comparison to all that goes unsaid.  And maybe that's how it's meant to be.  Would any of us really be better off if we spoke everything we think and feel?  Instead, we know each others...
