    Hey there. I passed you in the grocery store

    yesterday. I was so surprised when I looked up from my list and saw you walking towards me. You're even prettier in real life than in your pictures. I was the guy who smiled at you, started to say something, then walked right into that display of canned vegetables. I was so...

    I write a lot but I never share anything

    because I don't think it's good enough in the end. It's like I know in my head what I want it to say and how I want it to make my audience feel, but I can't quite reach it.

    Unimpressed

    As much as I enjoy writing on occasion, I can't ever bring myself to say that I'm impressed with a piece of work I've done. Hell, I usually think it's so bad I delete it as soon as I'm done (this is usually referring to short stories). I have all the ideas that I like, but I...

    Tattoo On My Heart.

    Every breath. Each sensation. There isn't any explanation. This feeling I'm feeling is beyond imagination. Every stroke. Every touch. I can feel you loving me so much. I trace the plains of your face. Filling the warmth of your sweet embrace. I listen to the sound of your...

    Something Just Escapes...

     I'm not a great writer. When I try something creative, it reads forced and choppy. I just have a hard time translating my thoughts to paper, it just doesn't translate. It's as if my thoughts and ideas are in a different language than the hand writing them down, and I have a...

    So Much For That Idea

    My relationship with writing is a bit confusing. When I was younger, the one thing I hated more than anything was having to write something for school. Well, things changed a bit as I got older. I had always loved to read, and I started to have a few ideas of my own. One day...
