    I just want to live “I don’t want to

    scream, I don’t want to lie, I just want to have a normal life. With friends and folly, balanced in time, I just want to have a normal life. Why can’t I stop this searing pain? Why can’t I be secure and laugh again? Why have I stopped to live at all, when for me it always...

    A poem written each day,

    Revealing you can say, What has crossed your mind, Helped your passions to unwind, Kept you awake at night With the thoughts of a delight, Dreams in the hanging tree: You sample so many experiences of life On that journey to become someone 's wife.

    "alone"

    I used to write some when I become sad... I wrote exaggerated scenarios that are tragic so that I could let out all the negative feelings and after reading them, I realize that my problem was so little to what it could possibly be. Here's one of them I stand here, In front of a...

    Inspiration Flows

    Sometimes I just get this overwhelming desire to express my feelings, and a poem (or a story) is born.  The words come flowing from my heart, out through my fingertips and dance across my keyboard.  It hits me out of nowhere, and I grab a pen and some paper or log...

    The Hello To My Good-bye
