Her hair flows behind her as she runs through the darkness. Life hits her at every angle, but she continues to get back up. Her body is covered in bruises, scrapes and scars. Each mark from a hurtful word, a painful touch, a self hating thought… She still runs. Her body is weak, but her mind is strong. She gets up. She runs. What is … Continue reading Run
What is going on? First you love me, you make me feel special, happy… Then you realize you need to work on yourself. Okay fine, I’ll be here with you through the process. But wait, it gets better! You get back with your ex right after you rip my heart out with your words. I cried myself to sleep for days on end. I felt … Continue reading What are you doing? What am I thinking?
It consumes me. It’s all I think about. I want to lash out. I want to hit you. My heart aches. It pounds quickly. It feels like my heart is trying to escape my chest. I cry. The tears burn my eyes.

I have walked away from my faith, allowing the world to change me and influence every part of me. I have been mean, so mean. So unkind it’s grotesque. I’ve fallen in love with the wrong men out of desperation. Desperation… Why? Because I am afraid … Continue reading Better
Everything I do Is because I love you. I love the way you smile, The way your eyes light up When you talk about things you adore. I love the way you snore in your sleep, The way you twitch and bump into me as you doze off. I love the ways in which you talk to others, Treat others, Welcome others. I love … Continue reading Because I Love You
How do you know if life is worth living? You have hopes and dreams and fall in love… But it never works out. You put your joy in people – undeserving. You love them and give them your all. But no. They leave. They rip your heart out with their own hands, Each tug spreading sharp pains through your chest – You can’t breathe. It’s … Continue reading When is it worth living…
