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…

Will Always be Worth it

  With every new memory we create  I get even more excited for the possibility of forever.  Terrifying  but worth it.    Gabriela A Tejada Copyright © All Rights Reserved. All Images were taken by me unless stated otherwise.

Self Accountability

Part of becoming aware is understanding what we’ve done. Growing through experiences, and maturing through reflection.

Watching the rain fall each raindrop slowly follows us outlining our reflection The path of each drop caressing me you holding my waist gently guiding me taking me back to where you had me taking me back to our bed. You laid me down in a bed of need closed my eyes and allowed me…

In The Air

“ I only need to close my eyes to feel the whispers of your love on my neck”…  Love, a four letter word that for so long meant absolutely everything to me,  my entire universe in a world of many galaxies.  Now, all that is left is a black hole of disillusion.   I lived for…
