    When Will The Time Come?

    I don't know how long I will be waiting, I am just holding on to the promise that he made, "I will be there as soon as possible". It is just hard, I want to be with him but I can't because of the distance. I am willing to wait no matter how hard it is. I have waited almost 2...

    There are days when I think about it more than I typically would. The whole being alone thing. I am tired of hearing the same old shitt, "oh you're young, or oh, it's because you have zero confidence, blah, blah." I see younger people date all the time. I've seen people with no...

    Waiting.... Waiting is hell.

    I don't mean waiting in line or anything like that. Waiting in a hospital waiting room? That's hell. That's what I did from 7:00 until 20:00 on Thursday, December 5th. Why? My grandmother, one of my closest friends and one of the only people I really talk to, went in for open...

    My Thoughts

    Do you already have someone who cares for you? Or do you have feelings for me? I already have such strong feelings for you that I can say that you're my soulmate. I feel a very deep connection between us. Do you feel it, too? When you are near me, I feel very comfortable. You...

    It's When You Don't Know

    When you're in the wait, you're in the unknown. That's the time that you don't know. You don't know what's going on, most of the time. All you can do is wait, and while you're waiting you might as well hope, I mean what else do you have? Nothing else. When you're in the wait...

    As I watched him depart,

    I felt a new found sense of excitement about spending the afternoon with him in an intimate setting and so publicly on display. I bit my lip in anticipation of his return.

    The Large Story Of The Undiscovered

    Some things are found - like coins, socks and keys. Others are stumbled upon - like hideouts and adventures. Some things are created - like art, soup and style. And other times they are discovered - like bands, peace of mind and love. I'll wait undiscovered.
