    The mirror to myself is my soul ,

    my soul is standing right in front of me but I cannot see her , for she is so hidden and tied down by self doubt and insecurities that every time she tries to break free she can't and gets another cut on her beautiful silhouette .

    There was a girl, who was being stupid.

    And there was a guy who couldn't stop staring at her. First, he talked sweet. As if she was the most incredible person ever. As if she was the prettiest woman on earth. As if nothing would matter other than being with her. They talked and talked. And talked. Then he asked her...

    Back To EP

    I had high hopes of never returning to EP, but alas. It is quite a good place to write things.... An "electronic journal" if you will. I'm going to be using EP mostly as a way to get my thoughts out of my head. I've been stressed a lot lately, and everything, no matter how...

    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...

    I have written so much.

    So very very much. Some of the things I have written are lost. I have tried to reconstruct them in recent years, but it's difficult. Writing is perfect therapy for me, but these days, I'm censoring myself far too much.

    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.

    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?

    i write. i dont like to share my feelings with nobody else but myself, so writing is the perfect way to feel better. the paper became my best friend, a "person" to who i can tell anything and that will always comprehend me. writing is my theraphy, definetely.

    Memoirs started writing going well I think.

    It really is therapeutic this writing business. At School my English Teacher Mrs Ramm encouraged me to read and write. One day I will dedicate my book to her beloved memory.
