The American Dream.. The dream of independence and prosperity. The dream of equality and self-deliverance. The dream of overcoming and succeeding. Reality check--there is no American Dream. This idea of being an American and having it all is exactly that, an idea. Unless you are willing to work for something, nothing will be handed to … Continue reading “The American Dream”
Like clockwork, you come back. The hands turn and right when the peak of the hour is about to be reached, I fall again. Just as I am reaching the end, I am drawn back to. With haste, I am ready to allow you to be my hands--the hands that guide my direction and control … Continue reading Clockwork
Come and let me escape my flaws through you then drown me in your sick reality. Latch onto me and drain me of all that I have. The way you care for me leaves my soul feeling incomplete and misused. You lead me to the light then watch as I trip and topple into your … Continue reading Abyss
