Low

This isn’t a happy story. It doesn’t entail a suburban home with one or two loving parents. It doesn’t come with any warmth or nurturing, no this story is dark and cold. It’s full of misery and empty vodka bottles, prescription pills and razor blades. A broken woman cries alone in her bitterness, resentful of … More Low

Thorns

She stuffed roses in her mouth to suffocate the lump in her throat but the thorns tore her tongue. Wine is tasteless and love is empty.

Away she went after the yellow butterfly out the courtyard, away from prying eyes and into a thick forest trail. The sunshine made the forest bright and inviting, … More Chasing Butterflies

Cold

I am the doctor and the patient, self-diagnosing every enigma I contain. The more I uncover the less I understand. I trust no one. Ultimately, I know I’m alone as I’ve always been. I’ve learned the hard way that lovers cannot replace what you weren’t given as a child and heartbreak is only a reflection … More Cold

Time

It can be a beautiful thing to watch the seasons change but time is moving far too quickly now and I can’t keep up. I feel as if I’m on a boat or perhaps a plane that’s going full speed through everything I’d rather stop and soak in. I can’t bare watching as time ticks … More Time
