Join Us in Despair

You know when you were a kid and your diary was full of angst and woe-is-me-ness? That is what this blog is for. Lost your job, dog is sick, someone stole your parking spot, crashed your car, just generally glum? This is the place to put all that lovely grey and those long drawn out sighs.

Lists of sad songs. Depressing movie reviews. Top ten reason to stay in bed. All things not happy. Bring them here.

Are you sick, are you tired? Have you been sick & tired for a year? Share it here. Unhappy, gloomy, dismal, down in the dumps, miserable only. Did you have a bad day, a month... share. Not that tragedy and despair can't be funny, contributors are welcome to make their posts goofy, witty, laugh-out-loudable, just not happy or upbeat.

Would you like to be part of the DD&D project? Do you have a sad story, a rant, a poem of a lost love? Join us as a contributor.

My Own Space


I need a little now and then
Some time for me
Away from it all
Without obligation to anyone
My own space

I need a little now and then
Hearing without noise
In a quiet place
Leaving questions unanswered
My own space

I need a little now and then
Words without speech
Drifting through my mind
No one to listen
My own space

I need a little now and then
Guilt left behind me
In search of freedom
Releasing inner desires
My own space

I need a little now and then
My own space

Yes! I totally relate to this post. I'm an only child (translation: lots of alone time) who is now mother of two humans, 2 dogs and married to a loud-talker. I long for the sweet sounds of silence.

My brother is 10 years older than I, leaving me as an only child in the house growing up ;o). Yes, I know how to amuse myself well...without need for too much interaction and although I would not trade in my three boys, little girl pup and my hubby for anything...a few hours to myself (especially in these moments)...sure would be NICE.

Thank you so much for understanding and appreciating the needs of Our own space.
