I have a shield, and it is useless. Riddled with holes, it does nothing to stop the incoming onslaught. Too heavy to lift, it pulls me down, down, down, growing heavier with each concern that flits through my mind. Yet I love it. More than that, I need it. Will it not protect me? I...

Craving Purity

I love chocolate. Chocolate syrup, Hershey kisses, mochas, hot chocolate... Mm, so good. So of course, when I went to my friend's house and there was a bowl of Hershey kisses sitting on the table in front of us to be eaten, one by one they disappeared... and then there were chocolate cookies on the...
