Did you know that those who spend their time protecting others are the ones that really need someone to protect them?

Did you know that the three most difficult things to say are: I love you, Sorry and help me

Did you know that those who dress in yellow are those that enjoy their beauty?

Did you know that those who dress in black are those who want to be unnoticed and need your help and understanding?

Did you know that when you help someone, the help is returned in two folds?

Did you know that it is easier to say what you feel in writing than saying it to someone in the face? But did you know that it has more value when you say it to their face?

Did you know that if you ask for something in faith, your wishes are granted?

Migraine today. I did get the getting of my driver's license renewed and the plates for the car today, man what an adventure that was. It only took 3 and half hours and a trip to Auburn and then one to Angola to get it accomplished.

Love and time-those are the only two things in all the world and all of life that cannot be bought, but only spent.

In retrospect

thinking back to this day, I must admit I thought of things I have found myself not writing about, in fact the coming week which is now past was filled with memories and a yearning that still eats at my very being. I have decided that I have hidden myself here, when I had always sworn I would not, and because of this hidden self things do not reflect the true turmoil and hunger in me

at night before I fall asleep, I lay alone in my bed, I send a thought on the eastbound train, and pray that maybe someday you will understand what those silent messages mean.

2002

everything was heavy today. the lamps the furniture, the candles, my heart. it seems as though I walked a thousand miles but only went in circles of course life is a serious of circles, at times we reach the peak and at times we find ourselves clawing our way back up.

where does a person meet people when they have been locked in isolation for so long?

1999

grant me feathers upon my shoulders
so that I may float with thee

guide me in the direction
of your chosen path

and please carry me when I'm weak

1998

Tears burn my eyes,
I try not to think
I fight this inner battle to call your name
I miss you so badly, my love is not fading
When you were in my thoughts
You kept the nightmares away
now they have returned
I can not sleep, any longer
I see your face, your smile
I feel your warm touch
Your gentle caresses, your whispered words.
I want to laugh with you again
Why couldn't it have been a different time
in this forbidden space.
Why couldn't it have been.
I question rather I should be selfish and take what I want
or if I should give to those that need you more than I.
I will always Love you.
