Stardate 24-13 point 6

January 8th, I am guessing. It is a Friday. No. It is Saturday, as midnight has already passed. I have been trapped inside myself. How long? It’s been an outpatient process. Some days I am locked in, others I have leave and can mingle within the world quite normal. As of late, more than not, more often during the hours which turn into days, and weeks gone by. Here I sit, within my own being, not knowing quite, what isn’t right. So in the search of meaningful thought, genuine affection to the topic at hand, a raw and real, unclothed, unanticipated, unexpected… I wholly embrace, I crave. And when this is the case, I shall be fully engaged. Let us not banter anymore of the things we cannot change. Let us move forward into the fullness of life. August 19th, 2013 Lori Hopkins "STAR WARS RULES" For the Star Wars Contest

Hi Lori, yeah, Star Wars Rules:) I agree, I just got stuck with the Star trek contest" Sadly I'm not the oldest one, or else I'd probably would have hosted this one instead. Anyways, I had fun with the Star trek theme LOL, I kid you not. CONGRATS! Love ~SKAT~

Love the title, but I thought it was in "Star Trek" that they used the phrase "Stardate etc. etc."? In any event, I loved this piece and I'm no fan of free-verse; I only compliment the ones that are actually good and make me feel emotional. Free-verse rarely resonates with me, so great job; kudos! :)

Reminds me of being in the mental ward. I felt so alone with all my kindred spirits. When you did engage no one was engaging. Weird wonderful ward...Kilmer
