    Man do I need therapy.

    .. I wanted to post this under I am Pagliacci but EP doesn't have a group entitled I am Pagliacci. The closest they had was I am a Sad Clown which gives the whole thing away.. You know the story of Pagliacci... He and his band of performing clowns would do rather sensual skits...

    I like to write to collect my thoughts.

    It gives me a way to reanalyze a situation I may have thought of differently in the moment, and then reflect back on it. I would love to write a novel or something some day. It seems like a daunting task. My wife always tells me that I am such a good writer...I like to write...

    I know how to fight for

    that love,, how to want that love, how to need that love, how it feels to denied that love... But I never knew how to give up totally on that love until today. I can fight no longer, I have no steam left in me.

    Good Night Already

    The ex is in bed passed out beside me. God his feet smell nauseating. He makes these smacking sounds with his lips that sound like he's sucking on some jolly rancher candy. I never thought this was cute. Now I can be openly annoyed by it! Sometimes when he rolls over he elbows me...

    I used to have a journal

    where I would share secrets and different things on my mind. My step father decided to start being nosy, so, I stopped. Writing in my journal was the only thing that kept me from not being so depressed.

    I don't write anything good.

    I occasionally post experiences on here when I'm upset or mad or just trying to get hints off my mind. That's really it so yeah..

    I write my thoughts down sometimes to handle

    the situation and I always feel better after it. I just wish i would have a talent for it because I don't think that what I write is good it just helps me to get over things. Anyone else who writes stuff?

    The Best Therapy

    Writing truly is the best therapy. It is free which is always a plus. I have always been able to be completely open and honest with my pen and paper and can tell them anything I want. The pen and paper will never judge only take what you have to say and listen openly. I have done...
