My choked sobs echo around the empty space in my room. They vibrate off the walls and bounce around the air in waves as the sound of new sobs follow them as tides of the ocean do. I’ve experienced pain like this. The rawness, intangible yet so piercing you can't focus on anything else. This … Continue reading echos in an empty room
I'm treading water in a pool with no walls in sight or a ladder. My option is to try the bottom, but even there is too far for me to reach. I look down at my kicking feet in the murky water and can't see deep into the blue past my toes. There is no … Continue reading Floating
I wish I could tell them.
Do you ever feel like you could say more than you do, but know that you can’t? In many of my conversations recently I’ve wanted to be blunter than usual. But in some cases, blunt isn’t always best. There are some people that have been in my life a long time and I have so … Continue reading I wish I could tell them.
Dancing in the rain
I want to dance in the rain. The sky opens up and the translucent drops fall to the ground from above. I want to be free, rain splattering on my skin, seeping into my hair.

In my head, I always give people the benefit of the doubt. That is my issue. Because even when someone has treated … Continue reading Sea of Memories
One. Two. One. Two. Left. Right. Left. Right. One foot in front of the other. Just keep going. Keep walking. You can do this. With each step, my knees plead to give out and my tear ducts release the dam that has been holding the flood back. Lately each day has been the same. Miserable. … Continue reading Loneliness

So Close, So Far by Adeline Whitmore What a terrible thing it was To have been So close To you And now Here we are So far apart I wonder If it would’ve been better To have never felt Your love at all. To me this struck a chord: … Continue reading Charmspeaking; the things you learn
Trying too hard to be happy leads to. . . sadness?
Throughout my eighteen years of living, one thing I’ve concluded is that being happy isn’t easy. People in this world say happiness is a choice, but if it truly was that easy wouldn’t everyone simply just choose to be happy? As humans, we have this innate quest to find these so-called feelings of joy and … Continue reading Trying too hard to be happy leads to. . . sadness?
