Poem I wrote the night before I overdosed in 2010. No title, just talks about heartbreak, suicide, and sadness.

Oh fair maidenDo you sing to the sea like I cry to the moonWith a heart of sorrow and tales of blueTears streaming like banners beneath a midnight skyAching pains which never die?Do you stare with eyes red like your flushed cheeksDo you whisper her name like I choke on yours for weeksDo you taste the thousand regrets and lies on your tongueLike whiskey burning with the fury of the sun? Does time fly past you like little birdsDoes nothing ever sparkle, even the prettiest of wordsDo you scratch…See More

Depression (And Suicide)

This is something we all face in this life.  We get lonely.  We are disappointed.  We fail.  Sometimes others fail us.  What do you do when you are  truly depressed?  What if it goes on a long time?  Ever considered suicide?  It happens all the time.

Out to Build Bridges

This is a LGBTQ+ group.  All men are encouraged to join, including straight men.However, unlike the already established AoM group "Gay and Bisexual Men", this group is wide open, no privacy settings enabled.  The overall purpose of the group is to encourage conversations between the straight and non-straight communities.  This already happens in AoM, but it is scattered.  And it can't happen in the private "Gay and Bisexual Men" group.Debate is expected, but this is for building up bridges not…See More

So as some of you know I am trans. Unfortunately for me that means I'm a very, VERY petite man. And by petite I don't mean weight wise I'm talking like shoe size being a womans 5 (which I believe is either a 4 or 3 in mens), my hands are small as hell so I can't even hold a wine glass elegantly with one hand without dropping it, and clothes, of course, don't fit me right because I'm pre surgery. And on top of that, they don't really make mens clothes for the short fat guys. They do make mens… Continue
