I'm fascinated by the image I seem to project to different people. They don't come close to who I really am.

I am layers and layers of lives lived that I may or may not have shared with anyone. I write letters about my life, my reality and the world I create so I can live in it.

I write to read the thoughts I didn't think I have. I write to hear my voice without bias. I write only for an audience who understands me --- I write for myself and it truly fascinates me to see how I am a reflection of how others see themselves.

I offend people with the things that are important to me. I hurt their feelings when I express myself in words they've never heard me say. It never occurs to them that until now it may not have bothered me or I simply have changed how I feel. I seem to be held to a certain idea of me that they prefer.

People change and often those affected by my change take it too personally. It doesn't occur to them that it may not be about them. I may want something new.

People are ill-informed about some things. I do not need or seek their approval to be someone different than what they're accustomed to. I am under no obligation to be the same person I was 5 minutes ago and I owe nobody an explanation. ...

Sundays are for reflection.

Silence is golden. I've noticed that I can be quiet for days. I get absorbed with the peace that comes with silence. I can hear my heartbeat and it reminds me to be grateful I'm alive. Thoughts I may have put aside surface and I see them better. I can pick through all that I've stored in my head and discard what I don't need making room for better thoughts.

My father has always instilled the value of words and therefore should not be wasted. Often I notice that silence is not everyone's best companion. Some people find it necessary to talk incessantly subjecting others to discomfort and downright torment . I do not do well in situations like that. I usually am "...

Remembered

You've said things
you wish you hadn't. You wished you've done things you haven't.

To sacrifice the happiness you deserve, you convinced yourself... some things are better left the way they are so when you try to remember each chance you never took, you can say you've done the right thing because in the process only you feel the pain... so you think... what about me?

Thought Often

If I never see you again
I'd cut my days short and
Make my nights longer.

I will write throughout the day
All I know about you
Until I end up with nothing.

All night with eyes closed
I will relive each and every
Memory I've written
Until I'm dreaming.

Days are for thinking of you
Nights are for being with you.

If I never see you again
All broken promises, forgiven
My heart, mended
Lost love, found
Trust, restored
Each day a new beginning.

Notes Left Behind

Now that I'm not around
I am more present.
Where there is light
I surround you.
Where there is darkness
I'm conspicuously closer.

When you look around
My presence seemingly
Not taking up space,
I appear to be nowhere.

Facing any mirror,
Your eyes do not see
Despair staring back.

My scent faded and gone
Hidden in the back of your mind
Until auspiciously summoned
By a familiar smell.

My touch long forgotten
Chaotically triggers thoughts
From a stranger's arm brushed.

The soundlessness of my absence
Is the enchanting music and voice
That will lure you to shipwreck.

It matters not that
I'm no longer around.
Wherever you go
Wherever you are,
I will be there
Because wh...

Promise

When the day comes and
You're ready
To claim what's yours
My heart is kept
Wrapped in red satin
Tied with a white bow.

Where the memories of us
Lay dormant until awakened
By true love's touch
The best part of me
I've left for you to find.

Walk into the woods
Where you find solace.
The yielding earth beneath you
Yearns each footprint you make
Making way for a new trail,
A road less traveled
By you without me.

Feel the wind pass through
The gaps between trees
Reach out to caress you
As I would my last kiss.

Here my heart lays
In a casket of fading memories
I wait.
I will always be with you
Heart wrapped in red satin
Tied with white bow
My promise I never break.

It takes courage to write. One has to be brave to live through all the thoughts and emotions that may come flooding. Some days drowning is inevitable because one may not have the strength to swim through the turbulent waves.

It takes courage to write. One has to be brave because he can be misunderstood. The group of words he combined is not always perceived as intended. The eyes see only what the mind is prepared to comprehend. People can only understand from their level of perception.

It takes courage to write. One has to be brave to serve himself in a silver platter for hungry wolves to devour.

Words mean nothing to me when the actions that come or follow contradicts. I wonder if the dictionary has been revised and the one I have is outdated. Maybe it's a game people play. Strategy to a game I don't know I'm playing? These people make excellent characters to life's sad story.

When I stop doing all things people are accustomed to seeing me do it's not because I gave up. I've come to realize that it's time to move on to better things that make me happier. I will do anything and everything that sets my soul on fire.

When I'm uncharacteristically quiet it's because there are no words that can explain what's going on in my mind and heart.

I have a habit that people never seem to get. When I'm looking for answers to questions I look deep inside myself. I am not troubled, depressed, sad, upset, angry, hopeless nor detached. I need quiet to hear myself speak where everything is about love, respect and gratitude... contrary to what most people jump the gun to.

Some people have the need to reach out to everyone. I don't. The answers I seek all lie within me... covered, misplaced, hidden, put aside or simply waiting to be discovered.

When I am quiet, believe me it's ALL ABOUT ME. I'm taking care of myself b...

People underestimate my capacity to understand/feel emotions because of how they see me. Each and every single person I know HAVE AN IDEA of me that does not come close to who I really am. I am so TRANSPARENT that they miss all of what I'm trying to show.

People see mirror images of themselves blended well with my image that reflects brightly to them - that one MINISCULE part of my whole being. In their eyes, I am defined by the way they see things. That's not who I am.

Faith is believing in something you know will happen  without knowing how. I've had FAITH from the beginning of my awareness of true happiness and deep pain which is somehow easily overlooked by those who see me superficial...

No matter how much love people think they give you but you feel used, abused and taken for granted going away is not such a hard thing to do.

What takes courage is walking away from those you know will be lost without you... but you have to choose between them and you.

Always choose YOU.

I looked at you today
Wondering how long
Until you notice I'm gone.

I have become a fixture
You notice only when you need me.
You know where I always am.

It must be such a relief to you
knowing you can find me.
What would you do
When I decide
Never to be seen by you?
You barely scratched the surface
Of who I really am.

Just as I have suddenly appeared
I can disappear with no trace
But I could watch you wonder
Where I've gone.

Nights like this remind me
The many times I died
When I was with you.

Heartbreak upon heartbreak
I wrote the pain in words
That could make the happiest
Of the lucky ones cry.

I sit here, tape in hand
Looking put together
Almost new.

Be proud...
Be proud of the masterpiece
You've created.

I'm perfect until you come close
To see that I'm all taped up
Barely standing on my own
But I'm alive.

I let him go a long time ago
But he chose to linger.
I wondered what for?

In the shadows
He watches me
Undecided if I'm worth it.

My heart used to ache
Every time I felt his presence
And he knew.

He taught me to cry quietly
And smile through the pain.
Now I can't tell if I'm hurting
Because I let him go or
I'm happy I can't feel anything.

I tried to cry today
To mourn what I thought I've lost.
I've ran out of tears.

I tried to smile
To celebrate what I have.
I've forgotten how to.

The vultures have feed
On my carcass.
They ate me alive.
Numb and cold I lay
All hope lost... dead.
Weakly my soul whispered,
"I got you."

Wanting something leads to
heartache.
For the last time today I asked,  
Tell me where it hurts?
I heard my heart break.

Sundays are for reflection on those matters that seem too much to think about all other days when we're chasing our dreams or trying to just keep our heads above water.

Do you ever wonder about the people who come and go in your life? Do you wonder about those who stay? Do you wonder about those who simply are in the shadows lingering making you think they are in your life but they're actually not involved?

If you strip all the excuses you could think about the existence of these people you hold onto... think about it, WHAT REMAINS?

Write an open letter on [what remains] that you're willing to share, tag it 'SundayThoughts' and I will take the time to read your letter.

This is NOT a pro...

"Everyone around me, they feel connected to something. Connected to something, I'm not."
- Ghost in the Shell (movie)

Has there ever been a point in your life when these words crossed your mind? Share your thoughts with us so those who can relate will not feel alone. This "lack of connection" to something in one way or another binds us. Sadly true.

Write a brief open letter and tag it 'movies' and 'alone'.

A Syrian father holds his 9-month old babies... not just one, but two as he said "Say goodbye, baby, say goodbye." It's devastating to think that our world has come to this. The children are our future. How bleak it is that OUR FUTURE, the kids do not even have the chance to find out what will become of them. Precious lives barely lived are ended much too soon and for what?

This heinous crime should not be allowed to happen again. What will it take to make this stop? Imagine a world with no children... we will all cease to exist.

Save the children!
