In the Moment

What would you change if you were able to meet me again for the first time? I asked as we looked out into the mountains Nothing. you whispered Why? I questioned I can’t risk it. I can’t risk going back in time and something affecting us. I can’t risk never sharing this moment with you….

Our Home

2020

  If everyone that left or was removed from my life within the last decade was a flower, I’d have a beautiful garden filled with thorn-covered roses.

Holiday Hues

Love on the Lake

  I’m truly scared because I’m in love with you. We watched the sunrise We watched the sunset You held me tight as I marveled at the star-filled sky on that beautiful autumn night you kept me warm in a way that the warm fire you built couldn’t. I cried on your lap as I…

Suffocating

I just want to breathe. I’ve been finding myself suffocating with the words that my heart knows but my mouth refuses to say. They’re tied in a lovely bow against my neck slowly squeezing, I feel the warm stream of blood as they break through the skin of my throat. Tragic. I hear a soft…
