BPD The Stalker Inside
When the pain grows
Manifesting inside
My rage congealing
Consuming my soul
At least I can see
My eyes open wide
I see what I am
And what's growing inside
But the pain is a blessing
At least I can feel
For when the darkness closes in
There is nothing to feel
No pain
No love
No hate
And thats why I bleed

Free Falling
Feeling so broken
No real hope left
Running through the darkness
All out of breath
When will it stop
Free falling till the end
This pain deep inside me
There's no life left    
All is gone
Nothing left but light
On my way to freedom
Where I can breath again

A letter to ED
ED, oh my dearest ED,
Deep inside I always knew it would be you and me.
We were like two strangers in the same place, walking side by side but never meeting, feeling that same feeling of emptiness.
And then we met, and you became my life. You made me feel so good about myself; all the pain which followed me for years was gone. You showed me how strong and beautiful I can be and made me feel like I was on top of the world.
We seemed like we could last forever, we needed each other, and we loved each other. With all the power in the world, united in strength. We were One.
Then it all went downhill. You became my addiction. A drug is a drug, no matter how good it makes you feel. Every high was followed by a low, each low taking my hope away piece by piece. You made me feel worthless, weak. You made me fade away. The beauty and love have been replaced with sorrow, pain, self-doubt and self-hate. I finally see your true colors.
So we're at war now, and you have won some battles. You are

Dear friends and followers,
If you have been around or my work for very long you soon realize that there is one word that summarizes who I am more than ANY other. That simple word is HOPE. It is such part of me some of you will remember be changing some of my group name and parts of my identity to "Hope in Recovery" a few months ago. Over the last couple years I have learned a very valuable lesson, especially in the world of social media. "Recovery" =  Substance Abuse /Addiction. That being said, I do not see what I do to be solely for the purpose of helping those battling this issue. That is not to say that I am abandoning all dear friends that are doing so. No what I have always felt was my "calling" is to try to help and share HOPE with ANYONE t hat is hurting. It may be addiction, mental illness, trauma, or just difficult life circumstances at that time.
With that said has come for me to acknowledge what this thing that I am doing is... it is a "ministry". There is NO way that I could be who I am and be able to shine the light of hope, if it where not for the Light of hope that is Christ.
But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,1 Peter 3:15 (NIV)

This hope, which is a safe and secure anchor for our whole being, enters the sanctuary behind the curtain. Hebrews 6:19 (CEB

Ok, to the point of this update....
I am seeking feedback and comments regarding a possible name change for said ministry.

"Hope for Healing Hurting Hearts" or H4 for short.

What do you think of the name as a whole and its fit for my established "vision"?

What do you think of the logo design?

I look forward to your comments and feedback

With sincere gratitude,
