I Think the Waiting Is the Hardest Part

    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...

    Long Distance Pain

    One of the most difficult things to endure is to be too far away from your lover to just get in your car and drive to see them. It really does test the strength of your bonds to each other. Modern technology helps, but texts and emails and phone calls pale in comparison to a...

    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...

    Waiting is the hardest part. I didn't realize this until about a year and half ago when my life fell apart. I was arrested for my relationship with my partner. She was over the age of consent, but not yet adult. I believe the charge is a cover your *** charge, but I could be...

    I live alone with my dog. I have friends but they all have their own lives. I am lonely but not desperate. I know that if God wants to put a man in my life it will happen. I keep thinking that the man will have to fall from the sky because I don't really get into the social scene...

    It is the hardest part,

    especially when you don't have something to wait for. Or maybe you are unsure of what you are waiting. What is it then? They said that if it really is for you, it'll come. Whatever happens. 😒

    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.
