I understand that what I did was wrong. I was mad, lonely, and terribly depressed. I'm awful at keeping relationships, I warned you about this. The distance is not something I can bear, so I sought replacement. What I found is that nothing can replace you. Because of my past experiences with my father and two spiteful rapists, my therapists blames my inability to stand up for myself and say no to anyone for anything. I have no self confidence and you were the only one that made me feel even slightly wanted, but now you're gone. And it's at huge possibility that you could be gone forever....

This kind of weather is really bad for my seasonal depression. Usually, with the help of meds, my depression is pretty well managed, in fact, as long as you didn't see my arms, or legs, most people wouldn't even know that I AM depressed. I'm not using my "condition" to make people feel sorry for me though (I know people that do, and honestly, it REALLY pisses me off.)
After dealing with Tony's abuse for over 4 years, and then another year of looking over my shoulder where ever I went, making sure he wasn't near me, etc. I finally got up the courage to press charges on him. Hence, the...

Written by darkest light the_unheard
Who are you to come back after all this time. The structures we built to last our eternity have now crumbled under your ignorance. And our bridge you burned, and the ashes have been carried away by the underlying current.
So once more, who are you to come back? When it was you who shed light on my dark soul, only to switch it off like you were just leaving a room. But that room was my heart, and that light was my hope and guidance. Now I wonder blind around the recesses of my desolate memory bank looking for where I went wrong and what to apologize for, when really the reason I can't...

It was then
I was ten
Age of innocence
Virgin to all elements
Roaming, searching for myself
Crawling in the back of my mind
To a world behind my eyes
Leaving the real one behind
No one knew what lied inside, but I
A world full of surprise
Finally coming alive, butterfly
Finding myself outside
Out my front porch
Singing to myself
Songs Ive learned along my way
Soothing my big empty
Under the sun ...

i am not feeling bitter,
or old.
much of anything.
the full moon stared in at my window
and i was naked for her
ive spent too much of my life being told to shut up and speak up
to tell you the truth now.
the sunrise was pink and green yesterday
today its yellow and grey
these are natural variations
and not metaphors.
the point is only that I was there to see it.
its taking far too much out of me
to not open the third drawer.
i need a distraction
and im seeing him later today.
the house doesnt smell like fire any more,...

Woke up at three this morning
not sure why
I fed the stove and checked on
the critters including the two
legged ones that call me mom
hustled back to my warm bed
fell asleep again
than the phone rings at 5:30
just the school saying it's
closed due to the snow
and now I can't get back to sleep
While I wait on my coffee I
slide myself into some sweats
throw a t-shirt on and a wool hat
pull my boots on
and head outside with the dogs
for their morning release but
only Matrix likes the...

A world of possibilities and potentiality †
Gone unimagined or supposed. †
What I donít understand †
Makes me different in admitting so;

Hazy steamboat people in frog goggles †
Come sailing from a window, †
And a jar of glowing dry absinthe †
With elevated feelings, †
Is babbling freedom for the poets †

Undular deflection, †
Speaking molecules and stones,
So angular and daunting †
Are the atoms rawbones. †

When life displays less than meaning †
Such as starlight,...

Snowy waste lands traversed.. Icy permafrost at its worst. Cold stinging the edges of my uncovered skin. The haunting memories of Jack Londonís building a fire remind me of my awaiting friend..
Treading homeward. Before it gets late and dark. The cobble stone icy layers of each step I take. As I walk down these distant endless snowy trails in the wintery and frozen park. Being careful not to twist my ankle weakened from injuries and falls from...

"What are your fears?" he asked.
"Failing... mistakes..." I think over my next statement. "...Commitment."
"Commitment?"
"Yes. Commitment. I'm afraid to love."
"Are you afraid to be loved or to love?"
"I'm afraid to love." He studies me eyes. Feeling uncomfortable I bat them away.
"You're not afraid to love" he says, "...you are afraid to admit you love." Goose bumps crawl over my skin. He was turning the pages of my heart... turning the lock on my door.
"Do we have to talk about this?" I ask, growing fidgety in my chair.
"Do you not want to?" he asks....

As mentioned before, my life hasnít exactly been rainbows and butterflies. I didnít grow up in the picturesque, loving family with a mom and a dad and several siblings. I didnít grow up with a dog or a cat, hell I didnít even get a fish. I mean sure, I have siblings, a brother, and I had a little sister too. But I also had a dad, havenít talked to or about him in years, probably the better part of my life, and honestly, I donít plan to again.
If you ask doctors, or rather therapists, theyíll tell you Iím insane, that Iím in stable, and not capable of basic human interaction....

When it's just you and me in my head,dear friend,i, think of how you left me, all the words that touched my heart.You took the time to befriend an old,ugly,mean bastard such as myself,and for that i thank you.I can never repay you for the brother you have been,so i guess the least i can do is say hi when i join you in the dirt.See you soon buddy.
