come into my closet, come under my bed, where you'll find me hiding,
the fear in my head.

abuse in the past, now, where do i start, making my future,
healing my heart.

crushed, and broken, falling fast-
needing comfort, make it last.

response to my commentors:
Blogger mile191 said...

thanks everyone...i am here, and something deep in me is....sad, I don't want to be sad, I want to be thankful, and enjoy the beautiful world that is awaiting my exploration...but I am.... maybe not sad, maybe just wondering, and worried, and weary....

but know that I have a great deal of gratitude, love, and hope.

I will write soon.

I am sorry for the long wait....

Hugs to you all for your comments and support.

mile 191, still....

I hope you're doing okay and that you find what you need to help in your weary life.

We'll wait for you, don't worry. Sad is okay, I think. I 've been through a lot of sadness lately. But, it's better than not being in my body, not feeling my feelings and not living a real life. It's hard, but it's part of healing.

Safe hugs ((((((((Mile 191))))))))

Mile, your writings are so deep and touching. You allow yourself to be real and raw. I can learn from you for sure.

I'm sorry you are sad, truly I am. I'll be here when you get back. Always!

You can be thankful and sad at the same time...that's what DT tells me...

I think some of us just have a more "sad" disposition. I've come to a kind of peace with this, when it's not overwhelming. I like to think the trade-off is a deeper appreciation of beauty.

You are a lifter.
Thank You for lifting Me.
Sometimes sad just is...

Will always wait.
You are always in my heart!
Take Care,

who I was, who I am, who I plan to be...

i am trying to heal from severe childhood sexual, emotional,
physical, and mental abuse; and abandonment.

this is my story.

i have good and bad days, and some days the odds seem insurmountable.
i cling to the hope that healing will come to mend the shatter pieces of my heart, mind and body.

mile 191, well, you will understand as you read along.
mile 191, portions of my past have a link on the top right.
mile 191, bottoms up. hears to you and to me.

please, if you know me, just let me know you found me. i need honesty. (and please do not use personal names)
if you want to follow my story, please try to heal with me.
if you want to share with me, please do.
i will post bits of my pain as i can, and leave it here.
i once thought that i would publish...i haven't had the courage.

this is my closet, you are welcome to come in.
just know this is my refuge, healing takes place here,
maybe it will be a refuge to you too.

Helen Keller

Success is not to be measured by the position someone has reached in life, but the obstacles he has overcome while trying to succeed.

When I hear somebody sigh, 'Life is hard, ' I am always tempted to ask, 'Compared to what?'

Don't let life discourage you; everyone who got where he is had to begin where he was.
