there is comfort within these walls…

where one can feel





the reality is quite the opposite…

within these walls

is where

the truest danger lies…

my worst enemy

    But Pee is there to love you when you feel that way. 🙂 Right?

    • 10. words4jp  |  April 23, 2014 at 11:56 pm

      Yes. That she is. Those big brown eyes;)

  • 11. PookyH  |  April 23, 2014 at 8:47 pm

    Wow – this is powerful indeed. You are hugely eloquent but also in need of a hug I feel *sends hugs* x

    • 12. words4jp  |  April 23, 2014 at 11:55 pm

      Thank you. I am afraid my writing is a bit dark, as of late. It is what I feel like writing. It will pass, I hope;)

      • 13. PookyH  |  April 25, 2014 at 8:16 pm

        I hope so too, though I hope you find the writing cathartic, I always do…

      • 14. words4jp  |  April 25, 2014 at 10:12 pm

        I do very much so, though sometimes I scare myself a bit.

      • 15. PookyH  |  April 26, 2014 at 8:06 pm

        How come? Because of the depth of what you’re feeling?

      • 16. words4jp  |  April 27, 2014 at 11:46 am

        Yes, I think so. I sit to write or a thought comes to my head and out it comes – dark as night sometimes. It is a cathartic feeling – letting it out, but I find it unsettling to think I even think this way.

      • 17. PookyH  |  April 29, 2014 at 8:45 pm

        I can completely understand where you’re coming from. But better out than in, that much I’m pretty sure about.

  • 18. Paul Handover  |  April 24, 2014 at 12:21 am

    Oh, it pains me to read your post. You are such an open, honest person; well that’s what comes across through your writings. Knowing and loving ourself is the only worthwhile journey of our life. For without being at peace with who we are, we will struggle to be at peace with others. Sorry, I don’t mean to get ‘too deep’. Hopefully, you sense where I am coming from.

    • 19. words4jp  |  April 24, 2014 at 11:14 am

      Please do ‘go deep’. You are right. Very right. 😉

      • 20. Paul Handover  |  April 24, 2014 at 4:10 pm

        Thank you! That’s why being loved so unconditionally by a dog is practically beyond emotional measure. Big hugs from Oregon.

      • 21. words4jp  |  April 25, 2014 at 3:55 pm

        thank you – and you are right – these wonderful four legged creatures – oops, in my case 3 legged is always there – always and for this i am sooo grateful.

      • 22. Paul Handover  |  April 25, 2014 at 4:03 pm

        This in response to your latest comment. That is that I’m thinking of writing a post on LfD about self-awareness. In part motivated by your post. Would love to share the draft with you. Want to email me your contact email?

      • 23. words4jp  |  April 25, 2014 at 4:27 pm

        sure – I would be honored:) the contact email is me:)

    LOL So true!

  • 26. Kirsten  |  April 26, 2014 at 7:25 pm

    Powerful!! And oh, so terribly familiar. Although, I have to say that I’m getting better in this area. If I can get better in this area, you can too! I will have hope for the times when you don’t K and vice versa. xoxo
