Maybe there’s something poetic about hiding in plain sight. Or maybe it’s weakness. Or maybe it’s strength to stay composed while the world crumbles and stirs around you. Maybe it’s survival.

Can I be one who shows a glimmer of light in darkness? Am I beacon to someone holding on, trying to breathe when the air seems thin? Is … Continue reading Hero
When one and one don't equal two anymore and the equation lays heavy because you know the truth... That is me and you.
You are me when the light dims. You are me when the light shines bright We are one. We are whole! Who knew?!? If tomorrow were another moment in the realm of eternity, would we notice the light? How bright can we shine NOW?!? If we aren't light, who are we? Reach for light!
I was a human once. I lived, I breathed, I knew who I was. It was somewhere between where husband number one left me a puddle on the floor and husband number two decided I wasn't enough. Maybe I'm not. Maybe they're not. I'm not qualified to say. Tonight, I'm thinking I am beyond expectations … Continue reading Thunder
Call me into the deep where you are waiting I've missed the feel of you My head can hear you and my sensibilities know you but my emotions have fallen out the window.
