"Fraud"

I feel like a fraud,
when I can't write a word.
I mean, on my one project:
the one I avoid,
and avoid,
and avoid some more -
and, in the end, can barely remember.
Then, I do. I remember, after all.
I remember why I
even started:
my novel,
the one work I am still alive to complete -
the thing I believe in.
No-one can take
that kind of pressure, right?
Not even my characters -
and surely,
it's enough just to get through,
when I spend months dreading appointments
that I absolutely must attend.
Do you know how many things
fall apart,
when it's that hard to make it
to any appointment?
Your body falls apart,
as well as your mind.
This isolation – it's driving me crazy.
Yet, people terrify me.
Real life?
Yeah - because, you know, there is
a world
beyond Twitter and Facebook,
and even You Tube.
I think life is beautiful. Don't get me wrong.
The trees and, when I actually manage
to get out on to the balcony – the breeze. Nature.
I'm in love with life.
I'm just sick of being stuck inside my own head.
I'm sick of being
anxious and depressed,
and of not being able to say
that I'm anxious and depressed -
because I've said it before.
I'm sick of not trusting anyone,
because I can't any more,
because I've been abandoned too many times.
I must anticipate yet another
slammed-in-face door.
I'll pretend to be okay now.
I just need to write some more,
and maybe then,
I won't feel like a fraud,
in the form
of a “writer”, who can't write
her words.

  2. I was living In Lynwood & Everett Washington In 1981 year/date I was 10 Y.O In 1992 I was in Seattle when 21 Y.O -My freedom on the Grey hound bus. Place /cities like Olympia-Aberdeen-Moclyps. In 1994 I was in the state of California on the west coast of America when 23 Y.O -Nice places like Sacramento-Bakersfield -Barstow. Note travel!#################### Set up a small cabin with 3 thick blankets at the base of the wooden tree so cute Squarrel animal is warm and comfortable. Cut a big hole on building door's then the pet Squarrel will truly survive the cold winter. Free animal! ################ Please Mail a bank/check worth $900 doller's to me: Scott H. Florance 1730 N, Franklin st, Denver Co, zip:80218. $900 in my pocket would be awesome! I don't like this place. I can't say "I am home." Its not what it seem's################### There was no humans adults before 1972. The history book in the classroom is fake. Where you ever 7 Y.O before Court Judge magistrate? No one goes to prison/jail more then 14 months. Stand up and say 365days+62days only. All prisons think globally, the new rules of engagement.{Isamorphic projection blind hologram} can't say inmate in penatenciary incarcerated is more then that. The cars on the road and faces on the sidewalk is illusion animated by the mind of a weird bad Machine*Android*Robot*Cybernetic-That's M>A>R>C to be short. He is a circuit that found a gear and made a fake rubber face. FrickenFrack I was scared twice!
