Silence.. Its been ages since silence was welcome.. I used to crave the nightshift hours when my love worked late and the little ones were in bed... Or those early mornings before dawn peaked her head around the night skies blanket and all the world still slept. But in this season of shifting and shaking … Continue reading Rewrite

Nameless.

Endless cycles of broken and breaking only to scar and tear and scar again. Layer upon layer upon layer upon layer and there's no escape from the torment. The demons won't leave. No peace. No safe space... Guarded hidden behind a wall of lies.. Fakery the only language. Life devoid of hope.. Devoid of living … Continue reading Nameless.

Mess

For the longest time I've held disappointments hand... I know the valleys well. Well trodden paths of heartache and loneliness. I've survived … Continue reading Mess

I forget … Continue reading Green thumb

An educated life .

When it was my little girl on the receiving end of bad news again I … Continue reading An educated life .

Clear skies …

Traveling down the freeway in the hopes of making it to our destination before the menacing sky unleashes its fury. All I can see is thick black as charcoal clouds and the effects of the wind building up around me. The car shudders as another gust hits us. Rain falls so heavy I can no … Continue reading Clear skies …
