    We keep to ourselves
    And we have this crazy idea
    That we all know how to fix ourselves

    To find all the pieces
    And put them together ourselves

    I so often see the flaws in myself and in my personality. I know what the solutions are, and how I can fix myself.

    The tree swayed back and forth as I climbed higher into its branches. It had been a long time since I had felt so free. The wind played with my hair, the cold bit at my bare feet, now scraped and dirty, and my heart was pounding in my chest as my lungs happily struggled to bring in air. It was a feeling of release.

    Teeth clenched and collar turned up around my neck, I turned to face the wind. I had never felt so alone than I had that day. Maybe it was the bare branches of the trees, the fallen leaves now dead and crisp at […]

    He stood by the entrance reading a book. As I walked in, he looked up at me and smiled
    It was the kind of smile where you could tell that he didn’t think much of himself. The kind that revealed he had a kind […]

    I bury may face in my pillow and heave one more sob. Then, I get up, splash some water from the faucet onto my face, and stare at myself in the mirror for a minute. “Nothing is wrong, just let it all go,” I think […]

    We sat in the upper level of the train. My legs outstretched over your knees as the car rattled along the tracks. It was not a long trip, but just long enough for you to doze off. And I stared out the window […]

    I threw all of my clothes into the suitcase that lay open on my bed. I would be gone by noon, without a word to Eric or Sylvia. They had their own issues to worry about, I needed to finally sort out all mine. […]

    Rain drops rested on the glass, obscuring the world as it quickly passed by outside my window. If only I had time to stop and breathe it all in for a while.
