    I try to fill my life with momentary nothingness to avoid the truth..
    Much of it is a numb blur which has cast a dark cloud on me..today is a rainy day...and if it rains again tomorrow...than everyday will be a rainy for me...

    it feels like I am stuck within myself trying to find the passsage down the right corridor down the ally. I cannot move foward yet behind me, all the bridges have been burnt. I am in a deep sense of nothingness that's deep inside me that won't let me forget who I once used to be. Its killing me slowly inside because I find no middle ground to just speak without the fear that I will not find someone to listen without prejudice.

    I don't even know what the words of this scribe are trying to say, perherps someone can read between these lines and tell me my inner future.....down by the wayside, up on the hilltop I want to shout and plead for redemption.

    Truly nothing is meaningful anymore once you've sold your soulf-for half price at that. Desparation is a truly sad thing...my sadness.

    lo, you are still the same person...redemption takes time...and in time you will forgive yourself, through prayer and self love...we all do things we wish that we hadn't....hope i didn't get too deep on ya, I did it with love tho.

    Mkhaya Lo'- As hurtful as it is sitting still this is where you need to be, just for a moment to truly feel the pain. Let it hurt let it burn, then you can let it go, and know you are still you and you will go on again. And only then can you make sure you won't make THIS mistake again. We will all make others, but to hurt and know is how to let go and move on. But realize you are not alone.

    thank you!...thank you....

    My sista's! thank you for being here for me even though we are miles apart from each other...this piece is somewhat of a collection of situations in my life that I'm having trouble solving and getting over or as gaylee puts it....moving on...as a result, I've been left deeply troubled and I have no peace...keep me in your minds and prayers!:( :(

    my sister...
    time has passed and i do hope the feelings in your poem have changed to energies that lift you high and let you soar...i hope desperation has consciously turned to inspiration...for your poem was that...
    this was my first reading of the work...slow i am..
    but hopeful...you have found...new beginnings...
