5/30

You have this ability of making me feel safe & heard. Like I can let the mask and shield drop from my tired body, and allow myself to stand naked before you without judgment or fear. Together in bed, you interlocked our hands as we kiss and that tender moment has been burned into my…

Mi Mar

As many of you who follow my writing know, very few places bring me peace and true joy outside of nature.  As a young girl, I remember the excitement that the sea would bring me, not so much the suntan lotion and crowded beach parties, but just the beauty and energy of its vastness. My…

Saturday, the 24th

My anxiety has been suffocating lately..  all consuming.  It wraps around me tightly, painfully, yet passionately.  Like a toxic lover, it holds me in a morbid but gentle embrace.

Wednesday, the 21st

A photograph taken in a moment of uncertainty and dread.  While beautiful, behind the camera, were distressed eyes filled with worry and heartbreak.

To Reminiscence

In life, we collect memories.  Those extraordinary moments that were so incredibly powerful, that we can remember them as if it were yesterday. A page in our photo album stored in our minds and hearts. I’ve always found it fascinating how vividly a memory plays when I close my eyes. I can smell the hints…

Sane

After losing control of my energy, ..I felt awake again. As I climbed to the edge of the cliff, I felt invincible. I felt my own strength as I fought, grounded by Mother Nature.  I felt the power surrounding me, slowly destroying any words of doubt, filling my lungs up with fresh air of strength and ambition….

Start of August

Like a child, the only thing heard as I looked out the car window was “WOW.” You smiled as you briefly took your eyes off the road to watch me. “I think I’ve only ever seen these in movies! They’re so terrifying, yet majestic in person.” I yelled. You laughed and called me your “City…
