    I Love You Still

    I gave you my everything. My heart and soul. You knew me from the inside out. We could finish each others sentences and I always seemed to make for dinner, what you had for lunch. We had children together and shared our lives together. There were good times and bad. There was a...

    Scared Girl...

    Scared girl, wondering if things will ever be okay again. Scared to walk down the stairs to see her father and mother yelling and screaming some more, unsure of what to do, but to scared to move, afraid to make some kind of sound. Scared for what is going to happen next, is mom...

    A Fireplace

    What is it like to curl up with someone in front of a fireplace? I don't really know. I never have, but I bet it's so very nice. Curled up and warm talking softly about anything, enjoying the firelight and sounds of the night.........*sigh*. I could do that.....

    Friends Are Forever And This Is For Mine

    Thank you to you. You know who you are. You are the ones that always make me smile. I don't come here to write my silly words. I don't come here for attention to  my silly problems. My venting, at best, is lame. My joking is far in between. I'm shy and lonely and alone. I...

    Vortex

    I'm looking down a vortex of nightmarish dreams, pulling me into them in slow motion. I watch myself falling, and have nothing to hold onto. I see all the things I fear reaching out and grabbing at me. I try to shake free. I try to fly. I figure I can, because it's all just ...

    Dust

    Heart Garden

    I feel you ripped from me everyday. I see your sweet face dying everytime. I watch your life ebb from me and listen while I die. My cries scream in the dark, from time to time I think, "It's alright." The times are fleeting and so very few that I can sit and think of...

    Away With The Fairies-- Part 2

    David had a great deal of trouble sleeping that night.  When he’d first lain down, he’d been unable to shut out thoughts of humiliation.  Samuel had clearly had his doubts about the “intruders,” and likely thought the idea absurd.  David...

    Passing Season

    Water doesn't seem to wash it away. Running my hands over my eyes, doesn't clear my vision. Sitting here isn't helping my disposition. Something just doesn't feel right. I can't make the feeling go away. There is a heaviness to my heart that I cannot explain. I cannot get away. I...

    Just A Sudden Lustful Thought.

    There is a way of looking into the eyes of the soul. A slight touch of the fingertips to his temple. A slight caress of a thigh against his that tells a story. Gracefully, slowly sliding a hand across the chest and walk silently away without breaking contact with his eyes. A...

    Being In Love
