Darkest Secret

Depression. Some people throw the word around like candy at a parade but it is nothing to be taken lightly. It can become debilitating. It’s a nasty disorder that could potentially push someone over the edge. Literally, the edge when life becomes death. Everyone handles their depression differently.

Face Off

If I wrote a book with all the things that I’ve had to deal with over the course of my 30 years, it would be so thick no one would want to pay for the paper to publish it. Paper, like everything else these days is expensive you know. The current struggle I’m dealing with … Continue reading

Pigeon Please

My dear “wifey”, who has made my life more meaningful in the last year than I could ever express, has taken to telling me certain quotes to lift my spirits the past few months. The most recent thing she’s told me seems to be a testament to how both of our lives are currently going. … Continue reading

As important as it is to me, I’ve tried to refer to music only here and there, as well as my “listening to” at the bottom of each post. If I didn’t limit … Continue reading

Understanding Mom

I’ve thrown around dozens of ideas for this post all weekend. However, as soon as I had an idea I could sink my teeth into, I’d dismiss it for one reason or another. I’m sure that all my fragmented thoughts will eventually become posts at some point but, that day will not be today. I’m … Continue reading

Round Trip in a Letter

Dearest Me, I know that you feel like your life is over. All your hopes and dreams seem to have flown away with the birds that you watch so often. I can’t begin to tell you how sorry I am for you. It’s not fair to have your childhood robbed from you. I’m also sorry … Continue reading
