Sonnet; Life updates (3/3)
I hope, through all of this, that I have learned
Some lessons to apply to later life,
So I may save fond friends from future strife,
And loathe myself a little less. I turned
My eyes upon myself, at point of knife,
From others' viewpoint: hard. It changed…Posted 4 years ago
Sonnet; Life updates (2/3)

A New Start
Liz Redmont needed a new start.
She decided this, while staring down the donut-shaped puddle at the bottom of her coffee mug.
It had been less than two weeks, since Emily had broken her heart. A week since she'd moved out, leaving Liz behind in an apar…Posted 5 years ago
I don't want to change anything, don't get me wrong. The more time passes, the more I see how it couldn't have worked. The more I see how much I would've suffered for you. Because I loved you and I love you and I would take so much pain for you just beca…Posted 6 years ago
There's a creature that lives somewhere between my ribs. Small, wild, a lover of the moon. Shaped like a lily and glowing like the warmth of a single lit match.
It was born when we met. A spark amongst tinder.
It stumbled onto its feet like a newborn la…Posted 6 years ago
