nightmares

You drift off to sleep. Your mind begins to form a world in itself, ready to take you off on a journey. You want a peaceful nights rest, but it does not come. Instead, a series of terrifying events and circumstances barrage your subconscious and stir you from your slumber. You have had a nightmare. Now lay your head back […]

dress accordingly

Dress for the job you want, not the job you have. Instead dress for the life you have, not the one you want. So much pressure is put on people to achieve more, have more money, have a better car, a better home. A better life. But more and better will never happen, because… there will always be more and […]

illicit

You have never felt this. You wonder where it has been your whole life. Why haven’t you done this before. The night is a blur. People are faceless and music is an emotion. The dark is light and your mind dances. Water pours like a river. It was the best you ever had. Now you have had too much. Isn’t […]

wind tunnel

Fail and you meet it. Wrong answers mean you see it. Not enough correct and you go there. What is it? No one knows for sure, but you do not want to be there. You do everything in your power not to find out what it means. You work to avoid it, you give time to never know it’s meaning. […]

patriot

I chose to serve my country. I enlisted in the Army. I lost my mind as well as my time. The military was my life. I lived with as a child, fitting I would leave my life as a functioning adult with the same. Time lost in more than one sense. I don’t get it back, but the time stays […]

memories

Can you trust yours? I can’t. Most of my life has been spent in the twisted haze of mental illness. Despite being out of touch with reality, those memories have shaped who I am today. I feel like I am a better person for it. I know for sure I am a stronger one.

sunlight elixir

The sun rises. It is a new day. You are fortunate enough to open your eyes. Each day is an opportunity. An opportunity to live that day in the sun. To make your life a little bit better. Try to give more than you take before the sun goes down into the dark night once again.

you’ll never sparkle

Is this all? Is this all there is? Is this all that life has to offer us? No one gets to be who they dreamed of when they were growing up. No one is their dream person. No one gets where they want to be in life. There are no fairytale endings. There is no kiss with the leading roles. […]

goodbye

You never know when you are going to have to say it. Sometimes you don’t get a chance to. Sometimes you don’t get to say anything. Sometimes you leave a note. Death is the only certainty in life. It is the only constant. We are born to die. No one gets out alive.

dream in color

Do you dream in color? Do you see words? Can you control your dreams? Do you remember them? To lucid dream is to go to bed to another reality. To a place you can control. To a world where you make the rules. Dreams are an escape from the pain of life.
