woke me up
just in time
to not allow this
to come back
i was really
since it was much easier
to go get out of bed
her litter box
than it would be
to empty my mind
should the dream
be allowed to
that flow from my fingertips
when words can never express how I feel which will never fall from my lips
Everyday that passes bye
i feel I die slowly inside
i write to purge these feelings from my inner core
because if I don't my life would be no more
because I have to get those negative thoughts out of my system and have them replaced with good thoughts ... I like to know what people think about my situation too because this gives me a different perspective to my circumstances
my journal on my computer. I used to have a hand written journal but someone close to me read it and it broke our trust. That and writing gives me cramps in my hand.
However, while I love to type, it is becoming more of an irritating thing to do because my computer is a POS and...
Dump your thoughts, and then change the font, maybe also the size and colour of the text. Give it a day or so to rest. Now read - the changed looks will help you to read it as it was typed by the other person. It is a nice way of helping to develop insights into our own...
and emotions, and it helps me keep a timeline of what obstacles I was battling at different points in my life. I love looking back on old writings and seeing how my thoughts have evolved and how I have changed as a person. that's why I love ep so much. I love being able to put...
am a liar" am I telling the truth or am I lying?
I tried to respond, but I think I still need to think about it. I wrote that sentence in question contained so called self-referential logic and was similar to other cases such as “If all generalizations are false, is this one...
That's when we would always talk. I'm lonely and I feel rejected. I am bitter and sad. I would love to just get on with life. I would love to stop crying. I can keep myself busy with work and church and house stuff and kids. I can see the brighter side, be content in my...
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...
just a dream, until it's not.
Reach beneath consciousness,
this fleshed-out reality,
and take hold of a whole new world, no magic carpet needed.
A house of mirrors reflecting
the innermost thoughts of man
where life is breathed into
every throw-away moment,
just a generous chance
of the stepdown therapy
Stepdown Therapy is the one that tapers the dosage...
"Close the door, write with no one looking over your shoulder. Don't try to figure out what people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It's the one and only thing you have to offer." - Barbara Kingsolver
all in paper, my worst times are written down, while my bests are in pictures, life is not easy, it will never be.
I like to write because like a quote says "verba volant, scipta manent", which means "spoken words fly away, written words remain". I believe that someday someone...
off the pulse of her circulation
His yearning for another lover brings home with him trials of intense pain and tribulation
An unloved woman's tortured thoughts glow with scarlet hues of red as though embers searing within her brain
On the inside she has fallen into a...
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...
cannot clearly see
What is the use of ears
if you are told you cannot properly hear
What is the use of the mind
if you are told you do not really understand
What is the use of the World
If the best philosophers call it just a Metaphor
What is the use of your Self
fearless. I say nay!! For the mighty is something innocent, unremarkable.
I am hear to tell you I would love to be compared to grass. Yes. The grass in a field or your yard. Compare it to you and your life. Its been rained on, flooded, sleet, snow, frozen. Starved for water in...
I write to tell the unspoken words that I keep bottled up
I spit the fire my heart yearns to release
I'm going to chew up all these other poets and show ‘em what makes my brain twist and turn with endless paths that all lead to a dead-end
Listen to the words as I...
and right now I need a really great session!!!!! The amount of slimy, wriggling, @ss hat wearing Trolls on this sight lately is getting way above board!!!! Keep trying to remember what my momma tried to teach me, as a youngun, ifin ya don't have nothing nice to say, then don't...
and just found it in my notebook. It's terrible I know, but I've shared so much with you guys, and wanted to post this too. You're not alone <3
A trust so strong that you'd never find
A love so deep, an eternal bind
Broken, twisted, wrecking her mind...
All the time, it pounds so loud. Went years without noticing, from day to day. Now can't shut it the flip up, it's got so damn much to say. "You've treated me so poorly, y'know... Hiding me within the dark. I need air & light & connection, here, or I begin to Hurt. You...
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...
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 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...
when I wants to!
How to say,"I don't want to come off as weird, but I really dig you" in a way that doesn't sound like a loser looking for a piece of tail.
How to say"the little I have learned about you has taught me a lot about me" without sounding like some dusty old...
Even if some perfect model of the Therapy existed, it appears that we would still have to be in a very specific sense “perfectly disposed” patients to get not only full but also partial benefits from it.
In case some therapy is “not working,” the uneasy...
Slivers of her soul. At first, she recoiled in horror. But thought, "He's been hurt so... And my soul is oh so big and bright, beautifully capable of being pruned. I can give this gift to this hurting one. This one I already so deeply love." But he kept the shears nearby...
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.
Why each line is as dark as the pen who wrote it
But they don't understand
The stars are only given their glory due to the darkness they are born from
A sky as vast as the sea
Depth beyond measure or comprehension
Both so mysterious
Perhaps I too...
into writing in the first place. I was not everyone else in my neighborhood, my school or my church. In fact, I was a real life Charlie Brown. I was not an intellect. I was not an athlete. I was not popular with the girls. Hell, I was picked last for everything. My life changed...
