No one ever hears me
My eyes bleed
But no one sees me
I wear a protective mask
A smile to hide the pain
I'm bound by chains in this never fading dream

Light in every way
I'm lost
My heart has been stolen
By the fear of my self
So often do I cry
Knowing I can not die
For if I do
I would die within a lie
Of a life I thought I knew
And to die in such a way
Would be pointless

 Seventy-three years since a sucker punch struck
 An unsuspecting harbor west of Honolulu
 Resulting in 2,403 American casualties, so tragic
 It provoked our Nation into a World War
 The second such conflict within three decades
      
 A dearly departed Dad passed-on fifteen years ago
 He served in the Army Air Corps for three years in the Pacific
 A tail gunner on a B-26 Marauder bomber
 Stationed in Saipan, Guam, Leyte and other island bases
        
 He safely returned home at the end...

No Redemption
Just silence
The cold winter morning
Not helping

It's an uneasy feeling
Not quite good or bad
Even my dog was feeling it
Can tell by the pull in the leash

Gonna have to get back to you
Usually the feeling is crisp and absolute
A lot has happened recently
Going with flow, what else is there ?

A.K.A; The difficulty of taking medications for emotional/mental issues
At first it feels like they're not doing anything, which makes you want to stop taking them.
Then it makes you feel like you're not yourself when they start to work.
Sure, that new person seems to like you, but they actually just like the meds; they wouldn't like the REAL you.
Sure, you can smile and the panic attacks lessen, and you can let go of the little things which used to drive you crazy (pardon the terminology).
Sure, you level out.. level out, meaning your emotions deaden and...

"Go back to that place," you say
 "That Consciousness, Please,"
I swear...  "Fuck No, It's not for me,"
The PRESSURE; The DURESS
Why don't people just let it rest;
There's Beauty in all things and
lessons that can be learned because
we're all human, (and, not so Divine),
and, we all Glean from Life accordingly,
to our own Mentality
I have Acuity and can View with perfect
Clarity a lot of things
That's my, Higher Power and my Gift
that's been on me Bestowed and I'll with

I find it odd that I've kept this writing journal for almost a year and only have eleven entries to show for it. It's kind of discouraging but maybe it'll fill up more now that I starting to finally, actually get over my writer's block. It scares me that it takes almost an entire year to get over a writer's block, but I finally feel like a veil has lifted. When I write these things down, I don't feel like I'm lying to myself. I finally started writing a story, five chapters so far and I'm about to start the sixth but I felt it was necessarily to tell my Writer's Journal that I am finally...

I don't enter as many comps as I used to, partly because they often don't seem that interesting to me and partly because I get the feeling they are not particularly unbiased. I read more comps than I do poems in any particular persons library because I figure people won't enter a poem in a comp unless they feel it is a pretty good poem, but clearly I am wrong. In fact, some of the winners are poems I think are not only not the best one entered in the comp, but some just plain suck. Now I am not going to say which ones, as I don't want to insult anyone, but if anyone has noticed the same thing...

There is nothing in this world that I hold on to; I am free, I am attached to nothing.  In life there is nothing that lingers in my mind for a long time, nor is there anything that keeps the attention of my eyes on them. I merely exist, everything is quick to leave and dissipate into an air of nothingness. Nothing is permanent, nothing intertwines nor attaches itself with my soul and takes me to places I have never been before.  
 
I seek that connection; a connection that starts in my soul and stays there forever. Yes, the connection that ignites my heart into flames of...

Raped
Ran over
Beaten
Thrown around
Many family deaths
After awhile her family was a ticking time bomb
It scared her
Anytime
Any second
He mom or dad can beat her
Talking about her dead brother
It kills her
People talk about the good times
to her she can only remember
when he pushed her into the stairs
threw her across the room
into the wall
because he was mad at her
for what ever reason
Good times good times
Funny words
She cant remember any "good...

It's been a while since I've written anything of any particular worth. Last night, sat at a table, with four peers, I felt passionate again. I'd been asked how the house was coming along so I showed a few pictures I fancied in various rooms. I displayed a picture, from Southend 1941, of a mother with her daughter in a wheelbarrow both in gas masks. I suppose it was unwise though I've never been known to tred lightly where I should. In the dining room, I explained, I wanted to dedicate a wall to the causes and effects of war. They laughed, said from my western home I was trying to make myself...

In my recent post,"Bill Cosby's Accusers",I gave my opinion of what might have motivated their accusations. Here I intend to look at Bill Cosby himself.
It is obvious from the alleged charges his accusers have brought against him, that Cosby never set out to intentionally harm them in any way, though the instances of drugging them, if true, are admittedly reprehensible.
He was not a woman-beater.
He was not a sadist.
He was not a sexual criminal.
He was not even a sexual briber, telling them they could have this or that job or position, if they...

We've been together for three years, as of yesterday.
We've had our share of argument, fights, heartbreaks and tears have been shead.
But we've had laughs, smiles, kisses and we've made love a million times.
We have a child together.
Yesterday almost passed by, I almost didn't give it a second thought.
Except that I'm 21.
And she let me go after I turned 18.
He took me in after she left me in the cold.
A year and three months.
I was with her for a year and three months.
Fifteen months together and it was always "poor her"
Always "help her" with...

My brother,
You aren't like any other.
My brother,
You are there for me like a father, but you love me like a mother.
Those times that you've smothered me with your over-protectiveness
I've always hated, but looking back it made me greater.
You're my big brother and I know there isn't any other.
My brother,
You know that I love you and I know that you love me.
We always can see eye to eye,
You stand by my side and you truly show me the love.
I know I may seem ungrateful for the things you've done,
But I know that you care and I'm fully aware of...

She's gone
Left this earth
Fought the battle
Went quietly
A little morphine
To speed her path
There are messages
On the voice mail
Ones I saved along the way
Knowing this day would come
Can't listen yet
Maybe in time
Knowing they are there
Gives me comfort
In a morbid kind of way
She was mostly good
Lived by a code
Did things the right way
Old school if you will
A day will come
When I go to the well
Not now though
The earth is still wet
I'm not ready to take the plunge
I...

I often wonder why people make mistakes... especially why we tend to make the same mistakes.
It's not that we're not learning from our mistakes, but that we want different results.
And that's not insanity, it's humanity.
We crave things that most often are unattainable in some way or another.
This is why we get hurt.
We crave mad love, deep friendships, adventure, happiness...
But what happens when the way we live, or the way we're supposed to live, contradicts our desires?
What happens is that we make mistakes... and we continue to make them.
And in...

An everyday chat with your family & friends makes you feel warm and cosy with a familiar sense of protection. But when a total stranger from a different continent incidentally drops by to read your views on a social networking site and share his/her emotions related to the same thought; it makes the entire world grow small, warm and cosy.
