    I am a good girl as they say.

    I always do what they wished and ordered me to do, but what they did not know is I am like a wild beast tied down waiting for the opportunity for the chains to loosen and for the cage to break open.

    Totally I feel like I'm being chained up.

    I had a dream like this once it was like a fairy tale. I had powers but was chained up with magic proof chains and there was a mirror that showed me people getting hurt I wanted to help but I couldnt

    Half of the time being in this relationship I

    feel trapped, like I'm a prisoner, like I'm forced to stay with him. I'm afraid if I leave no one else will love me, I'm afraid I'll be alone forever and I'm not very good at being by myself alone.

    I just want to be free.

    I want to feel alive. I want to be on top. But I'm down here. Not even knowing how to get back up on my own.

    ~ Freedom by Khalil Gibran At the city gate

    Maybe I don't want to be free anymore.

    I'm so used to captivity now that I wouldn't know what to do with my freedom if I ever to have it back. Maybe it's forgotten me like I've forgotten it. Maybe it's better this way. I just don't know anymore.

    Freedom From Society?

    Every day that passes I feel less and less inclined to attempt to be a part of this society.  All I see is billions of people striving for money, more money, and still more money.  Wealth and prosperity is measured by some man-made device that really doesn't count for...

    for nothing but the experiences. If only for a short time. I want to run, travel somewhere, sleep on the ground, find a way to get by. I don't want to live behind these bars of society forever. I want to be hot and cold and dirty and tired, and hungry and ...happy. It is only...

    Perhaps, Maybe happy?

    Tonight my mind was sifting in moonlight. Thinking of who I am, of who I want to be. It went through memories, of regrets, of chaos, of trauma. A night when your thoughts of pain want to be heard. Of moments in life, when you felt a black hole was your existence. Of people you...
