The Drive

Even a simple drive on the seaside road with music blasting on the radio was calming. Her lips curved into a smile as tiny raindrops splattered on the windshield.

Pause (My 100th post)

Dear Readers, I just wanted to thank you all for your love and support. I opened this blog during a difficult time in my life and I never thought it would get this far.                           This blog wouldn’t have reached 100 posts if…

The Wave

They told her to ride the waves but she was too afraid to so she grabbed onto whatever she could see. She sensed the sinking. She sensed the cargo on her shoulders become tighter as she went lower.

The sun cast a ray of warmth onto her skin, it felt wonderful to appreciate it after hiding for so long. A trail of past memories flashed across her mind. As if each cell of her body recalled the moments she refused to mention. She had always sensed the broken in her , but delving…

The Climb

Maybe you’re on the top of a cliff resting from the climb, you promised you’d never look down, but for a second there, the corner of your eye catches a glimpse of the scene beneath your feet. It’s less frightening than what you imagined. Before you get the chance to look at it again, a…

The Veil

Wherever she went, she wore her grief as a veil sometimes it was so thick that she couldn’t see past it. She knew her grief would come in waves and when the veil was transparent, she noticed…
