    Paco was a crass and rude man.

    He was a misogynist and always had to belittle those around him, and worst of all, he visited often and stayed long. I understood little about what was going on, but I watched my mother make a broom out of completely natural material. Wild straw, a maple branch, and strands of...

    It is because it needs day light Structured,

    but formless and cold. Alone, it is nothing. Daylight is the eye that sees, the mind that processes, the soul that absorbs. alone it is nothing.

    I Will Sleep i will turn off the light

    and close my eyes. i will picture something pleasant in my mind and feel arms that are not there protecting me from the bad dreams that enjoy taunting me and haunting me so that when i wake, i wake refreshed and fit to fight another day.

    A string inside my soul unravelled,

    traveling to yours. Pulling, tugging, gently, slowly, landing on your shore. There you stand before me now, your eyes connect with mine. I am certain that I know you from some other life or time. No words are spoken as we gaze, time is standing still. I could stay forever here...

    There was a time I had laughter constantly

    bubbling beneath the surface. There was a time I was mischievous, flirty and funny. There was a time I had so much to give, a time when I could constantly be there for those I love. There was a time when I had hope and dreams. There was a time I knew what passion was. There...

    Behind the amber eyes Is

    where I long to go Into the storm Through the waves until I reach land Softly treading the shoreline Basking in the glow of the horizon A wall of amber Impenetrable I stare at it For days For months For years Forever Awaiting my chance to explore

    What I write is a pain.

    Maybe it's like child birth then? That will have to constitute as positive thinking at this point. Keep the writing with personal or public. No more for the time being writing to one who feels like having a baby girl or boy when my bitter vocabulary reaches new depths of inanity...

    She was just a weed. Sidestepped.

    Shunned. undesired. Imperfect in every way. She had no color to attract. No thorn to protect. Such things matter little when one is a weed. But every few months she mustered a bloom. A bloom not of fireworks and sunsets, the weed bloomed with a hushed beauty. A quiet pretty...

    I have an idea for a fiction project.

    With a beginning, middle, and end. Usually it's missing a timeline, but not this one. . Now if I can keep my adult-onset ADD in check...and summon up the self-discipline to actually *work on it* and *finish* it....this could be cool!
