sigh...I clicked...and I still need to scream--but I won't.

I think I'll go light some candles instead--try to refocus this energy to the other side...

but thank you.

...the same place sighs go when they're not, Karen.

my scream tonight: Rhyme. It's bad enough everything seems to rhyme, but does it have to all seem like the Hallmark card type? Urgh... it's like a "Poetry" assembly line. Urgh.

Perhaps there is happy medium?

something to scream about? oh I got plently,
I rarely use Alley, being used to screaming silently inside.. but ok I could do with screaming...


I just finished college, (well 3-4 months ago and I have no idea what to do with the rest of my life, the job I thought I wanted isn't I want right now, and my skills are limited, I studied animation at college and there aren't many of those companies here, all the employment classifieds have those scary words "experience necessary" I have these visions of myself trapped in a non creative job for the rest of my life....
it just makes me want to scream.

Ok I feel slightly better having vented that.

OK, but you better turn the volume down.
Thanks, I feel better now, even though the problem didn't disappear.
Can't I just hit the delete key for that???

Ok a place to vent anonumously. Sweet.  I have one big thing right now that needs to come out and my usual phone venter is out of town.

First this is to a girl named Jill.  You can see the poem I wrote for her in the Teen section(nudge, nudge)   Not great but who cares.


I don't understand you at all.  When we first met you and I both agreed we were perfect for each other.  We had so much in common it's not funny. We talked that first night on the phone for over 3 hours.  3 hours. Without knowing each other before.  We talked about EVERYTHING.  You had a great time being with me the next night.  You said you loved hanging out with me and you wanted to do it again. We kissed, and not just some childish peck or drunken make-out, but a real kiss, full of emotion.  I was so nervous, I hadn't met a girl like you in ages.  You were what I wanted, what I thought I needed.  You were nervous too.  Do you remember how you were shaking when we pulled up to my car.  I asked what was wrong and you said you were nervous and scared.  I asked why, you said you didn't know but that you knew it was me.  I asked if that was bad and you said no.  You said it was the good kind of nervousness and you were scared I wouldn't like you.  But I did, and I still do.

We talked later and you had already changed.  You still liked me alot but you thought we were rushing things, and I agreed.  I laid off some and you too.  But we still got along so amazingly well.  I could talk to you about anything and I did.  I told you things I had trouble telling my best friend of 10 years and I didn't worry.  I knew you would understand and you did.  You told me things you have only talked about to your best friend and I understood.  We both agreed we didn't want to jump into a serious relationship but would let things take their time. We talked 2-3 times a week for long periods of time. We got along so well, I still can't express that.  You were even the one to say it first.  You said we got along so well, you couldn't explain it.  You said it was beyond belief.  We seemed to be on the right track. Everything was fine.  

Then you met him.  Todd.  How I so hate that name now.  I didn't mind much that you went out on a date with him, cuz you were set up to go out with him on a blind date before I ever met you.  But, I don't understand what happened next.  I mean what the Hell? You said you didn't want to jump into a serious relationship, but you start having him as a B/F less then a week after you told me that. I just don't get it.  

I confronted you on the issue soon after that.  We talked.  You said you couldn't explain why you did it.  You said you felt so bad about how you treated me.  Your exact words "I don't understand me, I met a guy like you who is perfect for me, and who would care for me so well, and I tell you I want to take it slow so we don't ruin it, but then I go jump into a relationship with him.  I stabbed you in the heart and I don't know why."  Well, WHY?  Figure it out.  You did it for a reason.  I said I guess I'm just not good enough, or that I did something wrong.  You said not to feel that way cuz I did nothing wrong, and that I don't deserve this.  You said I was good enough.  You said I would make an awesome B/F for you, and that you still liked me more then a friend.  What the Hell am I supposed to do now?  Sit around and wait? Leave?  I mentioned just stopped talking to you and you said I should still talk to you.  You said you loved talking to me.  You said I'm still the cutie you fell for.*  I told you I wouldn't leave, I wouldn't stop talking to you.  I told you I didn't know what to do either though.  You knew my best friend told me to just leave you and find some other girl and you still asked me to talk to you.  You said my best friend was wrong. You said I still have a chance with you. But you expect me to wait?  That's not fair.  I liked you and I chose you over Laura.  Laura, the girl I've written so many poems about, the girl who I cared so much for.  The other girl who played me for all I'm worth.  She still does, and I let her.  And now you expect me to let you play me too.  Why should I continue letting people walk all over me?  Just cuz I'm the nice guy who won't tell someone off, just cuz I'm the type of guy who lets girls do that.  Because I can't stand the thought of hurting you or her by telling you both to get lost like every other sane guy would.  Because I have hope.  You said I still have hope for us to get together.  I wish I DIDN'T.  Hope sucks.  Hope is just delaying the inevitable.  Hope makes the pain continue, far longer then it should.  You are already starting to feed me just enough to keep my hope alive, so I don't leave.  Laura does it already.  I hate hope.  Let it die for all I care. Maybe then I could get on with my life.

You chose him over me and you don't know why or you won't say. You said you have never lied to me and I believe you.  So just figure out why you chose him and tell me. Cuz right now the only way I can take it, is that I'm not good enough, though you say I am. That I'm not cute enough, though you say I am.  That we don't get along well enough, though you say we do.  That I failed you, and you say I didn't.  You tell me one thing and then do the exact opposite.  If I would be such a great B/F for you then why are you with him?  If you loved talking to me so much, why have you not called me in a week?  I haven't called you either, but that's cuz I don't want to pressure you.  If I'm so wonderful, then why do you make me feel so worthless?  

I don't feel any better, but I had to put this in writing and my journal is so hard to write in anymore.  I must be doing something wrong with girls cuz somethng like this has happened before and it took me over a year to finally lose hope and just quit talking to Steph.  Then she goes and calls me 4 months after that and I fell right back into her trap.  I guess I'm just a sap.  I'm so gullible. I fall so easily.  I wish I could just be an ass once in awhile, like everyone else.

ex animo,
Aaron Woodside

*(Not to sound conceted, but I guess I am one of the so called "lucky" ones.  Being cute is not all that it's cracked up to be.  I guess I'm one of the first to complain about thinking themselves attractive and not vice versa.  You are held to a higher standard then everyone else.  Everyone expects you to do everything perfectly.  Girls always think your a player. ALWAYS.  Some don't even take the chance to get to know you since they think you will just hurt them.  Yes, it's a bad example but it has happened to me.)

There are no great men, only men in great circumstances.

My true mother is someone i love as a mother, but hate as a person.
She has reputation which I can't
she "gets around" 14, she had an abortion, 16, she had my older bro.  18, she had me. I could be her sister!!!
The reason her and my father got divorced id that she was cheatin' on him w/ multiple people.
She visited me once and every night she had a differnt person
She never calls
She purposely ignored me online. She wants nothing to do w/ me and I resent that.

ok,,,,, i feel a little better

Yes there will be tommorrow, but will you be there to greet it?

Aaron, Aaron, Aaron. You sound like the ultimate sweet heart and I am very sorry about Jill... NEVER EVER AGAIN say

"I wish I could just be an ass once in awhile, like everyone else."

First off, you don't wish that, because if you did you'd be like every other hotty out there (and I assume you're a babe...) that won't give the sweet gals the time of day.  And also just imagine the sweet girl that hasn't yet caught your eye but has been watching and waiting, and you know she exists... well if you handle this wrong, what's she to think? And imagine the girls, which I am one of, who are sitting there after their bfs have been horrible to them, and reading this or seeing you and thinking "So there is hope in the Y chromosome?"... Well I'm sorry but if you give up and give in and become just another ass in the world, I for one will at least stop reading your poetry!

Now as far as your grieving, I don't think I can be of much help. Usually I'm one for comedy, and most certainly sarcasm, but it doesn't seem the internet allows this too much, but I hope you find some source of joy that will at least distract you from what you're currently experiencing.

Much luv 'n feel better...

I don't want to scream.

I just want to curl up on the floor and go to sleep for a long long time so I can forget about life and what a goddam mess it is.

Agreed, sleep is my saving grace.  No worries and no problems.  It's a shame I just don't get enough sleep as it is.   Thnx Cassi for the reply, but I still think guys that treat girls badly have it better then "nice" guys.  Girls claim they want nice guys but who do they usually go for: the ones who will treat them like crap.

People usually get pretty much what they deserve. The girls who fall for guys who treat them badly are getting what they deserve (at least, if they stay longer than it takes to find out what they are). The guys who get the girls who want to be treated badly are getting what they deserve, too. Why would anyone want to willingly join this not very elite club?

I'm curious, Aaron, if you would go to your boss or teacher or minister and use words like asshole? This isn't a bar and most people are polite enough to not use offensive language in an obviously public setting. I think it's particularly offensive at a site for writers because, like most profanity, it's a trite cliché with no real meaning. I'd appreciate it if you could find better ways to express what you mean?

  sorry Ron.  I have edited that word out of my last post.  

As to your question, well yes and no.  I work in a union warehouse and that type of language is not only accepted, it is the standard.  Even from Management.  So yes I do use that language to my boss and he uses it back.  He has called me worse names then that and I him.  I guess I just forgot where I was.

But I see your point. If I believed in organized religion, then no I wouldn't use that language to my pastor/minister/preist.  As it is I do not use that type of language when worshipping or conversing with God.  She wouldn't like it you know.  

Also I know that type of language is vulgar and it is not usually in my main vocabulary, but because of my habit of using it at work, it does sometimes slip into my mainline speech.  My apologies.

Yes Aaron, she's right. dont ever wish to be like all those other "typical males". you definately sound like one of those great guys that girls like me wish we could find...except i already found one of them. good luck with your situation though. i know its really tough.

now as for something i need to scream about--i hate people who will be super nice to your face and even buy gifts for you on special occasions and then turn around and scr*w you over, and still act like nothing happened the next time they see you! how can people do that? how can they live with that on their conciences(sp)?? its wrong, especially when they do it to someone who was nothing but good to them and respectful and invite them to their home.  I HATE PEOPLE LIKE THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just want to scream everytime I try to write something "deep" and it comes out like Christopher said....like a Hallmark card. Now if I had the money that Hallmark has, that would be great - but I don't. I just want to be able to finally get the words down on paper that I know my brain has stored somewhere....uugggghhhhh.....whaaaaaaaaa ....there that feels better. Thanks. Chris

This is the reason for a CD collection. Let the Germs, Black Flag, Dead Kennedys, Sex Pistols and X do the screaming for you.
