Stop. Stop telling me what to do. Telling me what to think. Telling me who to be. What to do. I’m pacing, back and forth across this path that leads to nowhere. The asphalt tingles the soles of my bare feet with each step that I take. My steps have a consistent cadence, seemingly like … Continue reading just for a moment
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. Soaking me and enveloping me within itself. Washing away my fears and worries, the things I want to forget. Granting … Continue reading Dancing in the rain

I’m talking to a beta fish. It’s the wee hours of the morning, and here I am, talking to a scarlet scaled beta fish. His name is Greg. He swims in circles around his highlighter yellow submarine and through his mini forest of navy and carnation colored artificial plants.

Do you know?
Hello again. I apologize for my distance, a lot has happened. Sorry to disappoint but, for this, we’re going to take a break from talking about E (spoiler alert: it’s an ending turned sorta-kinda tragic but for the best and most likely, for you, will be left a mystery like my identity) Anyhow, so, let’s … Continue reading Do you know?
