To My Former LoveI’m not sure what I was looking for when I left home, but I was sure I’d know it when I felt it. It could have been anything; a friend, a stress reliever, a one night stand… In the end, I found you… I’m not certain of what we are when we’re together, but I know that I like the feeling.To My Former Love by poisel3
We began to meet each other more frequently. Each encounter brought me to my knees at your feet. I would inhale deeply and feel you consume me. I would hold out my arm and you would take me to another world. I would feel my worries dissolve and open my eyes to see you dancing in the brilliance that surrounds you.
In time, I became addicted to your presence in my day to day life. Without you, I would analyze how miserable I am when you’re gone. I want nothing more than to be enveloped in your arms, taking in the smell of your perfume. I want to feel lightheadedness you bring me with every visit.
You’ve been nothing but wonderful for me. I’ve found love
My Dear AbigailI lack the words to properly describe how you make me feel. It’s kind of warm… like a breeze that would pass me by during the Spring, eager to see the flowers dance to her unheard melody. I think love might be as close as I can get to voicing my emotions.My Dear Abigail by poisel3
You and I will casually slip the phrase “I love you” into any conversation, but I’m not sure you understand how much I mean it. I love you because you take care of me. I love you because you willingly spend your time with me. I love you because you are yourself around me and I feel comfortable to be myself around you. I love you because I know you would never judge me. I love you because when I’m with you, I feel confident enough in myself to dismiss the bitchy people who comment rudely about us.
We’ve been together since freshman year, it’s not a very long time, but we’ve been through countless things together. It’s always been the two of us against the world. We’ve al
Turned Down IIAgain.Turned Down II by poisel3
I was turned down again. This time it was not an organization, which only made it worse. I was denied an ESA by my mother.
She denied me what I need because she’s “a single parent of four girls, working overtime.” She denied me what I needed because if the medications aren’t doing their job, yet we still have to pay for them, why should she adopt an animal only for that to not do it’s job and become just another thing to pay for. She denied me what I needed because she thinks I don’t have an issue with anxiety. She denied me what I need because we already have a cat for my oldest sister. She denied me what I needed because she thinks that I just want a dog, just for the hell of it. She denied me what I needed because if I outwardly appear to be fine, then there’s nothing wrong with me.
Mom, I understand that you work hard, but it’s only natural for me to need things. I understand that the medications should be doing their job, but
Turned DownI was turned down when I asked my school “Can I bring an Emotional Support Animal to school?” They turned me down because the animal would be too distracting to other students whilst the animal and myself sat in the back of the class. They turned me down because, obviously, I can tell a counselor about the way I feel when I don’t know exactly what it is I’m feeling. They turned me down because the law says the don’t have to make accommodations for the people who need them.Turned Down by poisel3
They said they would give me a pass to leave my classes when the anxiety got to be too much, but they don’t understand that the animal would be there to calm me; the animal would be there to perform a task for me that no one else could. The animal would listen to my troubles and not judge me. The animal would be there solely for the purpose of keeping my anxiety at bay, a task I have yet to master for myself. They told me no because “emotional support animals don’t perf
