The unbearable

loneliness of being. I once said, that I had a solid attitude towards solitude. Of course, this could be so much further from the truth. It’s October, and the streets are littered with what-if’s and could-be memories. The soggy paper leaves read like torn love letters, they cling to my boots and I carry them home. The fall makes me want to hold hands with something other than dying trees. Clinging to warmth, cupping hot soups and burning my hasty tongue. Speaking of hasty tongues, mine gets me into trouble. But worse, my reckless heart. I cannot help my passion from spilling out, it’s like I have a leak in me. My sea-sick lover tethered and cursed to drown. Alas, they wriggle free. For now I’ll read too much badly written erotica, and imagine a man who isn’t a ghost I hold hands with in the fall.

judging of the ignorant i would guess. Trolling to ridicule the confessions you don't understand, and can't because you haven't lived them. Their pain is authentic. What value do you add?

You're just so much deeper than the rest of us. How do you get through days as a tortured artist?

Would be hard pressed to have squeezed her ghost wrighter from the bone orchid or inspired a tale of more woe from two citizens

Just grossly mislead in many places.
That wont happen again..
Trust needs to be earned now!
Before it was just a given, cause thats how I used to roll.
Foolish I know.
I was brought up by an Angel!
She didn't understand this world either, but I do now!
Thanks for that.

why the down votes? Thought this was poetically and beautifully written, and I related. Thanks for injecting some originality into the confessions :)

You're so right. My mom and son are both scorpios.

You write very eloquently, even if it’s about your unbearable pain.
