Wish I could be more like (you) Patient, kind. I’ve been hurt so many times it hurts. I’m not envious, not boastful, not proud. And what has that got me? While pious show-offs reign. I don’t delight in evil. I can say that much. One day the truth will come out I hope. There’s that […]


Home A single light blazes in the distance guiding my way, the only thing visible through the haze. The past haunts each step: explosions, screams, decisions, truths too harsh to remember or forget. Twenty feet away now, feet crunching through snow, hair frosted by harsh winds. A door swings open to reveal a shadowed face. […]

You Should Know

There was something I was really supposed to tell you. I remember writing it down somewhere.  Was it on my iPhone? No… I forgot to charge the stupid thing again  last night. I didn’t have my journal at the time, so it couldn’t have been my journal either. Agh, where did I write it down? […]

I could not believe it. Every time I walked by, […]

L is for Love

L is for Love On that day in March, I had only just arrived at the estate, a little-known ward from the country. I was a shy girl, nervously seeking fresh air and some solitude while walking through the gardens. Golden light glittered merrily on a rainbow of flowers while I walked, parasol in hand, […]

K is for Kisses

You remind me of fresh strawberries, juicy sweet, the soft flesh and the deliciously crunchy layer on top. You make me laugh. Do you remember our first date, walking awkwardly hand-in-hand along the beach? I’d never seen a sunset on the shore and  you didn’t believe me about that. You told me I didn’t need […]
