              The Ethos of lettrs
If we are we unable to take just a minute to sign a letter or thought for something or someone we care about, then what do have a minute for? I started this network of kindred spirits with the simplest of rules; you literally had to take time to write, with a one minute minimum before delivery or publishing.  Did you know it takes the human mind an average of 58 seconds to complete an original thought or process a full emotion?  Everything prior to that is reflex, reaction and impulse. That is the land of chats, snaps and tweets.  

lettrs is the network designed for reflection, not reflex, of hand signed communications actually designed to last.  It is perh...

What question burns in my heart?
So much so, I feel like I'm falling apart
Well, that question is: will they leave me?
That question doesn't seem to have an answer, see?

Even if the answer is yes, I know I'll be fine
I just wish to know the answer now, but I'm not devine
Every question has an answer. Whether it be good or bad is irrelevent
Because good or bad is just a judgement

My question is the aforementioned
And I have an answer to it too
It doesn't matter if they leave me or not
What matters is if the relationship was actually true

If it was, then I'm great!
If it wasn't, then, that, does me, frustrate
But I know that a lot of the relationships were, and are, true
Because, if they wer...

Rich blue waters show a deep search for the words we thirst for, lurking deep beneath the coldest currents and provoking our irresistible desires to swim - and die - down there, frozen but found once that secret light appears.

         If I could have the answer
         To just one question

                              I need to know
                              If her inner darkness and pain
                              Will end

                                                          Leaving her to know
                                                          That the roads
                                                          She traveled
                                                          Were worthwhile
                                                          To reach
                                                          Her destination.         JD

Prompt: Yes or No?

I'll be 48 years old in just under two weeks. I'm getting closer and closer to 50, while 40 is just a distant memory. My life, not only doesn't look like what I'd hoped or imagined, but, is a straight up hot mess.

As I've been working through the healing and recovery process with the PTSD, I've been learning so much about the life-long effects of childhood trauma on the structure and chemistry of the brain. I've been learning the connections between that kind of trauma and physical health as an adult.

Some days I have hope for a different future, one not marked and affected by anxiety, depression, and conflicted relationships. Other times, I only see the damage and brok...

#MyReality

I was looking in the seashore,
inside the water
That
My mind discovers a small imagination moment,
where
I was travelling
Alone in the ship, no one is on the ship, just me and the blue world is  looking to each other,
I was deeply slept through mind then eyes blink my dream fled away again I started looking on the water
This timed
 I was looking at the waves of water that reminds me to shows that my face is thinking about the most despair past, I looked upon inside to open the page of closed book(Past) but the wave has moved away so my
thinking changed again,
I could not concentrate on all that is needed to live, my need to look at mirror
to see myself and talk about  anxieties I...

// Maybe //

Maybe it is just alright to be broken at times, knowing you gave it your all. it is just alright to knock at the wrong door; the feeling of  being ridiculously rejected and dejected. it is just alright to sometimes, have it all. Maybe it neither was their mistake, nor yours. There is always a maybe shouting into the void for answers. Maybe, it is just alright to not find them at times. Maybe it is just alright to love and not be loved in return. it is not alright to break yourself every single night, in a false hope they would hear your screams when they were not even capable of listening to your whispers. Maybe it is just alright to expect love from the wrong set of people, ...

Five quotes for today-

Sometimes there is no darker place than our thoughts, the moonless midnight of the mind.
Dean Koontz

When she transformed into a butterfly, the caterpillars spoke not of her beauty, but of her weirdness. They wanted her to change back into what she always had been. But she had wings. 
Dean Jackson

Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.
Stephen King

Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.
Neil Gaiman

Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
George Bernard Shaw

The Sun is down
Moon behind the cloud.
Stars are lost. 
It is time.
This time is mine.
To get up,
Dust my pants,
To stretch my stiffs
To put away the myths.
Let me flex my neck.
Heck!
Nobody became a great woman by walking on roses
Or embroidering them.
This is the time.
This time is mine
To walk the roads,
All roads difficile.
Each crack will heal,
When I stand there,
Beyond the horizon.
Looking up,
Never down,
Looking at the next fort
I ain’t aiming for a pinnacle
I ain’t a small girl,
I am a woman,
A woman of my own.

You love reading.
And it was beyond your understanding how a person couldn't find friends in the silent pages of a book.
You love pizza.
And again it was beyond your understanding how anyone could not like pizza.
When we come across people who are very different than us, we often question their existence. We call them weird.
And sometimes we fall in love with the same weirdos.
The simplicity of it all, accepting people for who they are,
suddenly strikes us.
And it's all beautiful, how love opens your mind to different possibilities....consciously or subconsciously.

I have taken shelter in books
I have taken shelter in words
I have started isolating my self with books
The way I am today has its reasons.
I have been trying hard to be good to people
No matter what I have gone thru in the past
By the same people...But its time to change and leave.
They say you love once and yes I did only to be left with broken heart
Yet ready to live again....love someone new again
And then I was heart broken again.
They say life moves on ...Time heals
Truth is you just learn to live with your scars with time.
So closing my hearts door for people to just walk in and leave me broken.
I have learned it the hard way not to trust people and not to let anyone walk in to my he...

"Termed Love"
Mind gets angry,
But Heart still cares
This what happens,
when two beautiful
hearts meet to each other and strike to the phase of circumstance, stands in front of them as a mistake.
when damage of hurting  is done
in between them, then
all the angriness to get
sober and later when the time makes them realise,
they within start cursing themselves,
One would say "why I offended her"
Another would say "I Could solve the mistake
we have In-between,
why do I blame him,
This things show
Mind gets angry
But still heart care.

-Chirayu!.
