Adolescence

Blog

Words typed in an old cell phone note from my adolescence:  Curled up in my bed its an empty feeling where you once were. Healing hurts.

45 seconds

Blog

      45 seconds. 7 years old. 45 seconds. Dressing room stall. 45 seconds. Dancing around. 45 seconds. Memory frozen. 45 seconds. Taken for granted. 45 seconds. Sisters bonded. 45 seconds. 7 years later. 45 seconds. Time compounded. 45 seconds. Chest tightens. 45 seconds. Changed forever.

initial rumination

Blog

Illness of the mind. Forced to face it. Behind a pane of thick glass. eye to eye. nostrils flaring. breath fogging the glass. Unease washes over me. Glass separates us. Powerless to gain full understanding. Separated. I walk away, images linger in my mind.
