    Anxiety and Panic Attacks

    I am sitting on my bed, reading a book, drinking my second cup of coffee for the day. I see it's time for dinner. So, I finish the coffee quickly but then change my mind to eat dinner later. I smirk at myself for being so fickle, so many thoughts invade my mind. It's so strange how our minds...

    Lament of an Inner Demon [1.1k words; mature content]

    This piece contains themes not suitable for children, and may even prove to be upsetting for some adults. You have been warned! Oh. It's you again. Great... Just when I thought you might finally get your shit together, you come back here bitching about whatever crap has displeased you this...

    Compilation Error ...

    The debugger is on. I set breakpoints every line. Scanning and scanning and scanning I go, checking moments of my life. My life crashes like that stupid code. It never compiles at my will. The semi-colons that I missed haunt me every minute. The schmuck that I am, I...

    [Potential 18+] Defeating an inner beast: A Semi-Autobiography

    There was a time where I was full of unbridled anger and other things, and I recovered. I'd like to tell my story. I don't want this to come off as a sob story, but instead one of reclamation of my life. Further, I am doing this as a reflection, or sort of meditation. It probably wont be fun to...

    Burn

    Here's is an excerpt from something I have been working on that I hope will develop into a longer story. This is a fictional memoir featuring a session of self-harm. See what you think. My fingers are shaking because I just burned my wrist with a cheap, gas-station lighter. I’m...

    Always There, Lifelong Friend

    Depression waits for me in the corners of my mind. I must keep the mind inside of me busy as to keep it from stirring rightfully settled dust. Television is not enough, music will not suffice, neither writing nor drawing will keep the mind active enough. Simultaneously I run them. And yet...

    Watered-Down

    Oh. I haven’t written this entry yet? I’m not mad, really. Rather I am impressed, again, with potential of this thing inside me: my mind. Despite the chimera I was aggressively fixated on while standing before the mirror, I manage to remember what actually happened: I brushed my teeth. As it...

    Watercolors

    Watercolors 2013 Everything has withered, dried up, & become a void of dispersion. The hatred, the anger, the force of his mind or the dark ink scribbles that I can't simply muster anymore. The beauty of the rain drops or the bitterest downpour, soaking me to the core with vapid...

    Just One Step (

    EDIT: Sorry about the name, I was going to add warnings, but I didn't find anything regarding a warning for what I have in my script here. But it seems I can't edit my title... So if you're wondering, that's what the bracket is there for. Hey, this is my first monologue. I fixed most of the...

    What Happens When...

    What happens when he was never there, so all your time is spent in despair, waiting for some one to actually care? What do you do when he stole your heart, but ripped it apart, because in the end he never cared from the start? Where do you go so that nobody will know? How do you hide so that the...

    This isn't a prompt, it's a poem I wrote. Sorry bout that. Enjoy, anyway.

    It's like everything is falling apart. It's like tumbling into icy waters and being certain you'll drown. It's like a giant hand is squeezing your heart, squeezing so tightly that it stops beating but you're still alive, still there somehow, watching from the sidelines. It's like you're forever...

    Up and Down. Story of my life.

    Well, it's been a rough few months and the only thing really working out is my writing. I've managed to write a good 60 pages in two week. 12,000 some words. I like it, it's going really well. Sadly, I've been pretty depressed otherwise. I've very much noticed that I'm quiet unknown to people I...
