    I want to see that smile

    when I walk into the room and our eyes meet. I want to be able to see the love in those eyes that was once there. I want to hear the laughter that my words used to bring. I want to feel the touch my body used to crave for. I want to see the feeling of security that came from...

    The words that came from her mouth were not the

    words that I heard. The words that I heard were my own inside my own shelter of thought...not hers. Reality sets in and I'm again wondering how I could confuse "I love you" with "Are you ready to order?"

    I think my wife is pretty

    and sexy but she doesn't believe me. She thinks she's fat because she's statistically more overweight than I am for her body and she doesn't enjoy sex as a result. She is having online affairs because she doesn't like her body and she can control what's seen online. If I get...

    Appreciation from others is overrated.

    I strived for years to get any form of recognition from my father, even after we hadn't spoke in almost 5 years, by his choice. I wasted so many years thinking I was doing right, but when I really took a step back and looked at my life, I was living a life I thought other people...

    My last relationship ended badly.

    We were together for almost 3 years. I'm not a perfect guy, nobody is, but I am a damn good guy. I did all the cooking, did all the dishes, did the laundry, cleaned, always listened to her and gave her my undivided attention, I worked hard, I told her she was beautiful (and...

    Change Is Unlikely

    When you live with someone who is totally self-absorbed it's difficult to come within range of their vision as they are always focused on themselves.  I won't go into all the difficulties I have in my marriage ... and believe me ... there are many ... but my husband is someone...

    Deep down inside.....

    There's this little girl who craves tenderness. Words that will bring tears of joy. Touches that warm the heart. Warmth and laughter shared as we enjoy a bath. Soothing comfort as they brush my hair. Words of affirmation as warm hands sooth my aches. My cheek on...

    I want to be appreciated.

    It's mentally exhausting. I do everything I can for my family. But I always seem to get put on the back burner. I raise our children. I take care of them. I make sure they are safe. So why...why am I always left to deal with things on my own. I try to speak about it and just get...

    Don't we all? Perhaps some more

    than others and some less then the average person. It is hard to keep caring when nobody seems to appreciate the things you do for them. Givers are always going to give more than they receive. Some people are embarrassed by generosity and some think that you will want something...
