• VEH commented on the post, barrier 10 months, 3 weeks ago

    My mind is open for those who can understand it but, my soul is harder to reach.
    A barrier is up with signs saying “come in peace”, as if all others are foreign and bound to impede on my many years of healing. But, when you got my mind you heard my soul, and when you saw the barrier you climbed that wall to show me not all peace comes from…[Read more]

    The walls creak and are 5000ft high and i swear they move closer together everyday. The floor is quicksand and i cannot move. I’m stuck. I scream and no one hears. I scream loud. “FIRE!”, “RAPE!” “HELP!” no one answers. I’m stuck. Anxiety. The walls are really 80ft, they stay in place everyday, the floor is carpet and soft. I’m not screaming, no…[Read more]

It’s so foreign to you that a black…[Read more]

  • VEH commented on the post, alone 3 years, 2 months ago

    Have you ever been alone? Not just by yourself, but truly alone? All of your family is alive and your friends are around you. Your phone is full of contacts but you are alone? It is an indescribable pain. Your lungs feel heavy while you struggle to find a reason to take another breath. Your heart feels heavy with the weight of not having one…[Read more]

  • VEH commented on the post, towers 3 years, 4 months ago

    I wish I could be as high as a tower. Not by drugs but literally that high up. To just stand on one and for once feel like I matter. Standing higher than everyone else and looking down on the little people and arbitrary things that don’t really matter in life. To appreciate the aesthetics. Feel the way the wind moves and maybe understand a few…[Read more]
