just to make sure there weren't any crazies in there before I sent them off to the authors. But they're mostly from kids anyway, so they're not crazy. Yet. But I read some damn inspiring, heartfelt, and touching things. So many of them were how they hated reading before, but...
I'm not sure if it's because fall is at our door step, or something else, but the air has an odd fervor to it today. Autumn is a time for letting go; a time for dying and giving up, but that's not what's happening. Though the air is light and crisp, the eyes around me are heavy...
that having a high-self esteem and a huge ego were synonymous. The reality, for me, was that I had low self-esteem and a huge ego. All I really see the ego as, is that voice which tells me what I am or am not. If not for the ego, I wouldn't even know what to call myself. At the...
aligned at the downward slope
Shake a little ,wake up better
It is a message of heaven in letters
Thunderstorm was severe
Glad,What could happen in a year?
It wasn't just loss of mind but of soul
Question of existence in mind on roll!
Thinking about life mere like playing fife...
and planning out my future. A lot of my time is spent daydreaming. I feel lethargic. I get the feeling that I need to slow down and re-evaluate my outlook. I'm trying to take each day as it comes and take things slowly. I know I'm smart and I know that I can be driven but the...
i wouldnt feel anything
id be free like a wind and still get fed
id scratch the ones who touch me and make furious sounds
look at the sun with proud eyes
and move in the dark with no fears
i wish i were a cat !
It's been a while since we have done this and I'm glad I agreed to come. There is one friend in particular.... She is something I've missed. We're outside her apartment complex where they have a little fire pit. The temperature has dropped for the first time all year and the...
post, but, for my sanity's sake, I need to let this out.
For the past few days, the what-ifs have been haunting me. I cannot afford to experience another monumental (I am exaggerating here, but that is how it feels like, at least for me) failure.
"When people say it's not...
I've always been hesitant to put up myself as a profile picture here. I've mostly used avatars, whether it be a picture I like, something I felt at the time, or my recent stint of Hobbes-related pictures, I rarely had my face up there. And I never really thought...
His skin is all honey and summer sun against the winter chill of mine. His chestnut hair is warm and soft, tousled like a child. I wish he'd open his eyes though. I like his eyes. They're warm too, like sunlight through whiskey and a touch of cigar smoke. He's honest, tame by my...
why I write without seeking publication or acknowledgement from the people around me. Why it's not a "hobby". Hobbies are things people do that make them happy, or to fill the spare time we have. Writing doesn't make me happy. It's like using a rib spreader on myself every time...
gold leaves shiver
through cracks of time
rays of sun flicker
through the crying sky
in my ballroom dress
clouds above leaps through the sky
gold leaves dangle blow in the wind
why must we be jealous
think more deeply
Welcome to my autumnal garden of paradise delightsAt times it can be dark, beauty smoldering joy, amidst riotous flowering moody colors.Soon bright serenity and pristine comfort.Be willing to dirty your hands freeing your mind !Feel the grass wet on bare feet, cool mist pollinate...
The words "i love you" are priceless, unpredictable like rolling dices/ here we are taking chances, making sacrifices / suffices and keeping one another in sight, our hands of cards dealt is right to play for any fight, in hope of getting that much needed balance that is tight...
let people in easily
it's self defence
'cos i've been got hurt a lot and i don't want to repeat the same thing.
It ripped my heart out...all black
Too much for me
No tragedy anymore
If same thing happen to me again,i seriously can't get over it
I can say i understand...
When angels hold your hands You just can't hit the ground They'll take you high and high And never let you down when angels hold ur hands u know ur not alone but u have someone that shows care, they love u without asking something and they never leave by ur side u call...
I always have. Friends and family, people who have hugged me say that I lack warmth. I am tense a lot of the time. It feels as if I'm fighting half of the time and I feel exhausted around other people, sometimes to the point where I hallucinate. I interpret that as weakness...
A butterfly sees the beauty of the world,
sees the ocean,sees the mountains,
sees changes,the nature n more beyond walls.
She hears of a sweet melody,
happy or sad,
music from ppl's hearts,
music when the city dream n dance.
She feels the peace,the courage when ppl...
just a sun peak volcano in the distant sky, as if seeing a "great force of endless energies" a deeper awakening
beyond, the hearts of humanity through an energetic oneness with unity.
as being a full moon gateway to other dimensions. Level of awakening the hearts of...
to read along the sky,
Readily wrote with beauty captured by a reverent eye,
Without the rays of the sun we would die,
No plants, no oxygen, no food to keep you satisfied,
My spirit moans louder then the belly groans
When I see the lost souls drifting unaware and
Where did the time go?
It's been about four and a half years since I was last in a relationship. That was all the way back in my freshman year of college, and at that point, I feel I was headed in a mostly good direction. I liked the girl I was with, I was...
It's depressing to keep applying to jobs and hearing nothing back. I so badly want to work, to get out of the damn house and do something that means the world to me, but the world isn't letting me, at least not yet. Sometimes I think I should just give up and apply to law school...
I don't have to look through some filter, some crude trick the world puts on for us all. I see your beauty as it should be. Full and free. You know that little silence that we sometimes get when we're talking? I really do enjoy that. I enjoy just being able to look at you. To be...
I have a tenuous relationship with cameras. While I think photography is an art form and a powerful one at that, I don't think it should be a substitute for experience. I kind of dislike how everyone has a camera to document every trivial part of their lives. Most people are not...
but I'm not sure what. I sit here alone in the darkness of my apartment and my hands dance across the keys, writing and deleting. I don't have much to say tonight, but I have a fire within me to write it out. What I'm writing out, I'm not sure. Perhaps my emotions that have...
and dirt. The day's toils had left its pungent mark on him, but she didn't seem to mind somehow as she lay her divine face against his chest, her eyes looking into his. He felt something stir in him, something climbing up from depths he never knew he had. He kissed her forehead...
But not permanently so
Let our spines entwine
Finding the music in the creaking of our bones
Knowing each other well enough
To stray from the formula
Making our song whole and new
Every time we find new notes
And they become part of our duet
A bottle of pills still clutched in his hand
Suicide- the police scream
Selfish- his family cries,
Because they could never understand
I was him once
Or at least I could have been
I could have died for the same sin
That burden he carried,
I had carried one too
Such a joyous...
It has been a long journey dealing with the passing of my Mom. This,Thanksgiving is the anniversary of living my life minus a Mother.The seasons of life and how they are played out. The time is like yesterday no matter how long any loss is. When I first started out this journey...
Are ordinary times
Encased in the rhythm of mysticism
And the things we strive to portray
Have all been done before
The folding of towels
And rinsing of lipstick-branded mugs
When we find our meaning there
But that is the nature of things
for you. I promise you're gonna miss me being there, putting up on you, refusing to give up on you. You're gonna regret everything that you've done to me including all the damage you've caused. And someday you'll turn back and i wont be waiting for you any longer. I might have...
ears and the piece you're hearing
in a space much larger
and you wonder if the man
lying next to you
can hear the acoustic guitar bouncing off our bedroom ceiling
so you look over
and see him curled
and you sadly know
you haven't bothered him
I haven’t been doing much lately except stress myself out applying to jobs. It’s left me feeling a bit empty. I haven’t been writing, haven’t been inspired lately. Basically, this will be the dam bursting, so this will probably be long, gushing, rambling, and...
A couple of days ago, there was some sort of question about if the military draft were back, would they take people who have mental problems. I answered, as is typical, not the question, but what the question made me think about, and that is that I would not fight if there were a...
people but I think sexism and societal expectations of men go hand in hand. That doesn't mean that nobody should be held personally accountable for their actions but it has to be related in some way. I mean, I don't know how many times I've heard somebody claim that women don't...
public speakers, conversationalists, writers, not patient enough, not good with math or money and so on. I believe that getting good at anything is simply a matter of practice. Say you're not the best at public speaking... so were the best public speakers at some point...
