Every time I swallow my drink too fast, usually water, I am reminded of my near drowning. I hate thinking about it, for I don't wish to remember that time period or anything else associated with that. I fear it may drive me to madness.   I'd feel completely suffocated, unable to unentangle myself and take my emotional health to safety. I don't have any tools yet for when I cross that path.  ...

I Know

I know why the night sings to me, And why the woods are my home. I know why the whip-or-will sings to only me, So I can dry my tears on my pillow more easily.   I know why I can't sleep anymore, But it took a lifetime until now to understand. My light stays on when I sleep, For I cannot fathom the darkness.   Angels watch over me, keeping me safe from harm. I needn't look over...

Ugly Monsters, Chapter Four

I was flipping through the channels today and stopped on the old black and white show about a family of unusual and most unattractive family of monsters. I'm not sure if I can name it or not.   What I didn't know was that my feet would feel stuck in cement and that I was as scared as a jackrabbit. The main character, in all of his glorious ugliness, had reminded me of my own stepfather.  ...

Ticking Time Bomb

  I'm a ticking time bomb about to go off. You've pulled the pin taunting me. All the shit that you talk, you didn't think That it wouldn't blow up in your face?   You're all talk without any substance, While being stagnant, you've done nothing but complain. You wonder why nothing goes your way When you put no effort into the life, you live.   How can you live a life when you...

Night, Chapter Three

Angel stopped counting and opened her eyes, adjusting them to the light. She turned around and opened the closet door slowly. Her cousin's white lamp was on, giving a safe, calm glow. She adjusted her eyes and went to find her cousin Sarah. They were both close in age, and each had wanted to be a great gymnast. They were always pretending which one they'd be like.   The girls were close...

Mother, Chapter Two

"Please, Momma, I don't want to go to Kristen's to spend the night. They don't have electricity or running water. You know how I hate the dark. Please?" Angel's tears ran down her pretty cheeks. They ran like dewdrops on a rose. Her hands were clenching and unclenching. Young Angel was a big girl now at eight years old. Emily reached down to her daughter and kissed her forehead. "I have no...

Scared, Chapter One

So many years and even decades had she forgotten. Dry mouthed, she stares at the television in silent horror. Her pupils dilate and her heart rate was skyrocketing. Suddenly she is a little girl again, scared in the dark at her Aunt Mary's house. She can remember the ugly, black tar paper outside and a brown set of bannisters off of the kitchen. Angel clenches her hands tightly. Her Aunt...

That wonderous thing, hope. In the dark, find the light, that spark. Four letters that save lives or kill them with a lack thereof. You were always my best friend as I struggled every day.   Hope is the most beautiful thing and costs nothing. My hope saved me. I don't remember when or I started to hang on to it, my heart and soul clasping it like a lasso, I almost made it my slave when...

Because I got sick of beating myself up interally and sometimes physically for so long, I came to a breaking point and realized later these simple things:   Accept all part and parts of you completely.   Know that when you do that you will feel instant, elated pure happiness.   Know with absolute certainty that no one or anything can ever hurt you again, even if you get hurt physically....
