“I’m scared to break down this wall. I feel like there are things I want to say but can’t.” “You can tell me anything.” This was the conversation I started that made both of us question it all. And I keep circling back to the fact of – should I have said something? Would it … Continue reading the silence of your heart
just for a moment
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 wish I could tell them.

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
It’s a start with the Head and the Heart
The head and heart are two peas in a pod. They are what dictate the way one lives their life, the choices a person makes, and the risks a person takes.

Time is one of the only phenomena that there is no control over. It moves on with or without us. It doesn’t observe boundaries. It keeps going and going and going and nothing can stop it. Until, that is, it runs out. I never truly realized the way things can change in an instant. One … Continue reading Time, Mistakes, & Skipping Rocks
