From top to bottom

Grace was never home Always out and about Could never sit still Unbelonging and ill How to find something that does not exist In my world? How to find pause? A silent peace The tightness in my chest Always present,... Continue Reading →

Ancient

In the quiet as I lay, feeling myself from within, searching parts of myself that have been long dead, tracing consciousness through my nervous system, finding feelings long buried, feelings that were crushed, suffocated and damaged. From my mind's eye... Continue Reading →
