Default Letter from a Prisoner

I know there's no words to comfort you...I know you're probably at your lowest ebb...like me....but I have to try...my name is Emily, yes I remember my name...even in this dark hellhole...lit by only a sliver through the window. That same light that burns my eyes to look at it....

I remember little of my past, except that it was a happy one....happy...what's the meaning of that word?

I had everything....but when my jailers took me, I remember feeling that I had nothing....

Oh, here, I'm well treated....I have my favorite foods, my favorite music, my favorite movies, but my food is tasteless and my favorite music doesn't move me and my favorite movies can't make me cry....

I don't know if you have visitors or not in your cell, but my visitors, treat me like it's my fault I'm here

I know the jailers keep the door unlocked, so I can escape....but to go out that way is to never live again...sometimes I wonder if death is better to life....but I don't want to find out

But I know there's a tougher way out....through the sliver of light...it'll take me a while....but I want to feel the sun on my face, the wind in my hair, smell the roses, be happy that I'm breathing....

But I don't want to escape alone...let's get out together....to feel what it's like to be alive....

Please come with me.....

Default I am waiting for you...

through the doorway of that sliver of light...

where the air smells wonderful and the warmth of the sun shines radiantly down into the deepest recesses where only darkness had been before.

Slowly, the warm shard of light will envelop the cold recesses of the imprisoned mind...

evaporating the dank fog where many have been cowering, revealing an ever growing brilliant light of hope...

in which one can rise up...and follow the lighted path... through the open doorway...that has been waiting to receive your shadowy image for much too long...

where life will be waiting for you...and offering up it's friendship and shared happiness.

Go ahead...make your escape...our hands are open...awaiting your arrival.

Let's travel a smooth boulveard, together...friend, and create new dreams on our journey once more.

Don't leave me alone behind.... please...

Yes I miss the warmth of the sun... the freshness of the air...
I miss to be out there...
I can see how's life would be if i am on the other side of these cell...
And yes... i can escape...

But I also know that I'll miss this cell again... How can I be sure the light of the sun wont blind me and it's warmth wont burn me?... How can I be sure I belong not in this cell??... Coz I've been here for so long... that I have become part of this cell...

My tears touch the cold dirty floor...
I think I love this cell...

I'm out now....I've forgotten how beautiful it really is out here....

The sun doesn't blind me nor does it burn my skin....I'm free and you can be too....

Take my hand......I won't leave you....

Default This dirty sinned world...

was the filter "Depression " places over our line of sight. GraveCrave...
to seek the warmth & true...light of life...

one must remove the "filter" to really see this "Dirty sinned world" for what it really is.

Natural "Beauty" without sin...is all around us. Birds, insects, flowers, trees...etc...

all of which offer beauty, without sin...

Yes, it's the people who dirty up the world...commit the sins...etc...

of which we cannot change.

We can however, observe the beautiful world and all it's other innocent inhabitants...

who teach us how to move forward...away from the fears...

that chain us behind the invisible prison bars...where there is only fear & darkness.

Please come out...gravecrave...Noki16 and BT will take you where beauty can be found...

each & every day...when you takethislife...end your prison sentence...

re-enter society...and share the beauty of yourself...with others who are seeking to re-discover...

what a "Wonderful World" we really live in.
