Ancestral Healing

There are days when this war is not my own. Ancestral threads pull, tear apart my heart, as if claws and teeth rip me open, their cries sound familiar, like they are part of my DNA. She, the Mother, and her Mother, and her Mother, and her Mother... I claim her eyes when I look…

Sweet Autumn Air

There is a storm rolling in. Oh, what this means for my heart as very often the weather mimicks how I feel inside. With the windows and doors open I can smell the rain about to deluge from rolling grey skies, the air just dropped about ten degrees *I am a human temperature detector. I…

Sight.

If I could pick a super power of all there ever could be, I would choose to see inside of you, and let you see inside of me.I would dig deeper than any other's eyes can go and I would unearth all the things you do not want me to know. Your fears your doubts…

Elephants Never Forget

Do you remember the many days of your life? The quiet moments that passed so slowly, adventures you had wished would never end, the tragedy that came out of nowhere, the love that changed your heart and taught you the greatest lessons?

For years, he tried. To change me with love, stability, kindness, effort. Thinking, if she finally felt these things,…

I Took A Magic Pill

With a deep breathe, focused, I meet it oncemore - a part of me, a season of this life - to reveal a part of the person I knew then. She and I, we are very different now, yet like a tattoo, she remains with me always. It was a time of great existential unrest.…
