Painfully Broken

Thanks For Showing Me I'm Nothing

You know what? I trusted you. I let my guard down because you told me you didn't want to be like my exes. You told me you wanted to be different. You made me promises from day one. You kept telling me to trust you, because you weren't going to hurt me like the others. You told me I was too good to be hurt like that. That J-P was a foolish man, and didn't know what he was losing, when he...Read On

What I Truly Am

Thanks For Showing Me What I Truly Am

I will never again. Why you ask? Because I keep getting hurt by those who promise not to hurt me. I’ll never open up again, and give my heart to anyone. There are those who are never meant to be loved, and I suppose I’m one. I know my friends will tell me I’m foolish, and that I do deserve love. But, I know better. I've been used, abused, hurt, lied and painfully broken hearted. I've put...Read On

Mistress Of Me

I'm My Own Mistress

Do you ever do something that makes you want to sing from the rooftops? You know, so everyone knows you’re happy, full of love and want to share it with all. Yeah, I have those feelings from time to time. It’s a feeling we should all share, to let us know this world isn't so dark and dreary. This world is full of hate, greed, pain and anger. So, when we have a chance to sing from the...Read On

My Everything

My Heart Is Yours

I fell in love with a boy who turned out to be my whole world. I allowed myself to give him everything. He had my heart, He had my soul, He had my mind, He had my everything. I wanted him to have it all. Though I was warned be careful who you give your heart to. While growing up, I was raised right. Don’t be dumb, don’t hand your heart to just anyone. My mama spoke to...Read On

Terror In The Night

Is It What's To Come?

Last night was like all the others I have as of late. I sent my baby to bed, with a kiss on the lips. Oh so sweet. I ventured into the kitchen and made myself dinner, where I fixed some stir fry, asparagus and Texas toast. My evening was fine; I was even in a good mood for once! As the night went on, my mood stayed high, it was oddly good though didn't know why. I sat here and read...Read On

Cold Wall

Will I Go Unheard?

The numbing pain that surges through me, I feel it, it's over taking me. I can't breathe, chest grows tighter. My words are spoken, I try to express them. They go unheard, or maybe just ignored. Don't try, that's what I hear. A cold wall will be built, to save myself... From you... ...Read On

Lament For The Lost

She mourns her lost lover, before searching for him.

This song only available on Stories Space. If you are reading it elsewhere, it has been stolen. ~~~The sea speaks ~~~ Wash my tears away with rain; Leave my shadowed heart by the sea. I've been dreaming of a sunrise with you, Where the salt on the wind scours my pain. Where are you? Far away where the ocean horses run, There's a meadow where my love has gone to live. Sirens...Read On

The Raft

Memories of summer can last forever

"I can't!" My voice, high and strident, carries out across the water. "Sure you can; come on, try." My sister's voice, low and calm, comes to me clearly. "No, I can't." "But you did last year." Last year. Perhaps. But this is now, and I know I cannot do it. I don't answer her. "Come on, just try." Still no answer. "Do you want me to come and get you?" My teeth are chattering together...Read On

Long Distances Bond

Together Our Bond Grows

Here I am, and there you are. I can see you and hear you. However that is all, because you are so far from me. What is in our way is endless miles of land and water. We met here on the computer, through a filthy site. Though at first it was friendship, things were clear what was between us so soon thereafter. We grew a bond, a swirl of love and play, it bloomed. Endless hours together,...Read On

One And Only

Us

If I could curl into your arms, and stroke your chest hairs, I'd be a happy girl. If I could feel your arms wrapped around me, as you caress my back, I’d be a happy girl. If I could feel your lips on mine, kissing me tenderly, I’d be a happy girl. How I long to be wrapped in your arms, it seems like forever. How I long to feel your arms wrapped around me, it seems like forever. How...Read On

Trust, A Broken Promise

What Does A Promise Mean To You?

A promise. What is a promise? What does it mean to you? Do you make them? Do you keep them? I think we all do. We all know them. We all make them. We all keep them. But then there is those who make them, and don’t keep them. No matter the reason, they find reasons not to keep them. Sometimes it can be out of their hands, sometimes to just break the promise. I wonder why some...Read On

The Way You Always

Always

The way I always felt your touch even before you touched me, The way I always felt your breath on my skin when you spoke to me, The way I craved your attention when you were busy, The way I longed for you when you were away, The way I felt safe when you touched me, The way I felt when you held me, The way I felt when you gave me your attention, The way I felt when you...Read On

I'm Not Yet Gone, But Forgotten

The Forgotten Place We've All Felt

I find myself standing here not yet gone, but forgotten. How did I get to this place and time?  I often wonder what I did. I often wonder did I make you mad. I wonder where it all went wrong. My life that once was so colorful, so full of life and love is now cold and dead. I'm not yet gone, but forgotten. There isn't anyone here to save me, but I scream for help. No one...Read On

Mask

This Mask I Wear

This mask I wear, the one you can’t see, it’s there to protect me. I put it on when I need safety. It’s there to protect me. When I feel at my most scared, I put it on, and hide my fears. The pain I've seen and the pain I've felt overwhelms me. I can’t undo what I've seen, or even what I've been through. This mask I wear, the one you can’t see, it’s there to protect me. I've been...Read On

My God, The Devil Heroin

This was set to music by my friend Joe Malgeri, and is referred to in my story Your Eyes...

My God, The Devil Heroin I walk down a broken street in search of my Promised Land, I'm on a mission from God and my God's name is Heroin. In the distance I can hear the gunfire, I'm in a holy war, my sergeant’s named desire. I walk past other junkies nodding out against a wall, We're fighting the same cause, fighting against withdrawal. I reach my destination, I talk with the man, I hand...Read On

The Fat Evangelist

The fat evangelist stuttered when he talked, but he sang when he preached-ah. He sang-ah the sin-ah out of the sinners heart-ah. He sang wallets out of purses and back pockets. He sang deep emotions out of my soul and tears out of my eyes. I loved to hear Alvin Smith preach. Like the Old Testament priest Eli, Alvin Smith got heavy off the offerings of God's people. His wife and his children...Read On

A Fallen Warrior

He wanders...

Necrosing tissue eats away at him. He suffers the pain, the torture, the terror. All in a bid to protect his loved ones. His body be used up, and his mind is worsening. Soon, he will feel nothing. Not even hope. And yet he continues in his vain bid: for nothing can take his spirit. They have his body, his life, but he will never, truly, succumb, never yield. But it is to the afterlife, he...Read On
