    Anyone can be angry. It takes no measure of

    skill or wit to feel the heat of anger. However, to be angry at the right person, for the right reasons, in the correct degree at the right time is very difficult. Like a pot set on the stove to boil; if you don't watch it, the heat builds and before you realize it, the pot has...

    A day with a narcissist is a day full of tears.

    That blank stare. Those eyes that see you, but ears that don't hear you. A mind that doesn't comprehend emotion. A heart as cold as ice. The gestures of annoyance when you pour out your heart, yet simultaneously laced with a patience to seem that they have heard. The...

    My blood is my tears.

    My skin is my heart. So why do you want to tear me apart? If you love me, if you ever loved me, how could you? How could you never see the truth? I'm right here. I'm real. I have feelings. I have tears. I have blood. And it flows.
