I wish you could find time to talk to me for a few hours.  I am all alone and spend my hours working or sleeping.  My cats are my company.  

My past is so gone, and a new me (or the real me) is recognizing itself and would like to share some time with the love of my life (even though you thought it was all superficial, it was far from that.  

Every day i think of you. I come home at night and since i live in the boonies, the sky is dark and full of stars.  I wonder which one you are looking at tonight.  I feel your energy.  I am on a new track in life, and it is being on my own, and it is getting easier, but missing you is the one thing that is killing me.  I dream of you always.  

Please just give me a chance to show you the real me.  I am not sure that you ever met her.

I am willing for a weekend out in the woods, or whatever kind of meeting you would agree to, but i think you will like the real me.  I do.

Ted,

All ... lostness, sickness, sociopathic, deathly harmful demeanor, scum of the earth, dead, heartless,  are just a few of the words and actions that I experienced without my recognition. I am repeatedly destructing myself and everyone around me.    I just want to tell you that you were the only person that gave me unconditional love.  I will always truly Love you, but know that too much damage has been done and destroyed by me.

I just wish I could erase it all, but I would never erase you and your energy.

I truly wish you peace in your life's ventures.

Previously yours

and alway in my heart

Ayla

 The old me is dead, and I only want to do things right, honest and respectable to everyone i encounter. 

Is there any way we could meet and just be honest and open to each other, with no expectations, but to heal ourselves.

If not, I totally understand why, and I leave you with this thought

Thank you for loving me, it was the truest love there ever was.

I am a new me

Ayla   no ore,no less

58 years of trying to figure out who i was.  when i found out, i did not want to own it.
 the pain that i caused was the most horrible thing anyone could do to another being.
 I can not go backwards, and it hurts to go forward knowing the things i did,
 wondering who the hell was operating my mind,and my actions.  
This has me wondering how one could go so astray and still be able to exist in their mind.

  The insanity that i finally now recognize is like a horror film with all the evils
of the world surrounding me. All the darkness that steals every ounce of my being.
The one i hurt beyond repair is the only soul that i truly loved but it was a sick love.  
how can such an event or group of events have slipped into my life and into theirs to the point
 of no return.  how can hate be so strong as to conquer and destroy us from head to toe.
 No way back, no way forward.  I so want there to be life after this existence,
with the only hope that i can find my true soul, that is not so dark.

I have seen the light of day seldom, and want to know what it is like to live without fear of
destroying everyone that gets a little bit close.

I was told that i do not know how to love, or how to allow others to love me.
The only thing that i think that i do know is that i am filled with disgust and feel helpless
 for that soul i destroyed.
somehow running away is leaving a long dark trail of insanity and hurt. Can i ever wipe
the slate clean? or is it

I guess i just have to accept that our actions are true , and that i have to accept because
we did what we did
insane or not, it no excuse, and i therefore must accept that i  am without hope.

The pain i caused has eaten a hole like a cancer in a soul, and that was soul was the truest, kindest
and loving that ever existed.  How can i go on living with this weight of guilt.  Can i ever reach
them again in another world, or is there only this life.  

forgiveness is then impossible when the events of this life destroy life itself.
So i fade away into the vast abyss screaming in vain for one final breath.
to the one i hurt the most...i am already there, My life is over,.and hope you will find your final
days on earth with peace and kindness
from all others you encounter.

To my soul mate that i destroyed.

 Holy Crap--your dog being shot! What kind of son of a bitch would do that? I'm not sure I want to know if she makes it or not. Disheartening. Thanks for sharing.

Certainly is good to feel free to express my opinions on this subject! I'm just spending some time learning what's what on here - lots of reading to do! That should keep my out of trouble.
