April 8th

April 8, 2016   That’s the day my heart broke. Broke doesn’t even seem to begin to describe how it feels in my chest. It’s almost like someone put a shotgun to my heart and blew the middle right out of it. My heart is still standing but there’s a lot missing. All the missing [...]

Infatuation

Infatuation is a common subject throughout life. Growing up the infatuations start off small; a school yard crush, researching your favorite animals, ect. Learning all you can about something that may seem just a slightest bit extraterrestrial. But as you grow older and your mind begins to learn more about the world around you the [...]

Use Me, Use You

Moving to a new city, starting a new job, making new friends; everyone knows that that this is truly difficult. But what people remember about these experiences is what happens in the movies and not what actually goes on in this new millennium we live in. No one moves to a new city and doesn’t [...]

Half-Truth

It was a Tuesday night toward the end of February, Eddie was gathered by two of his best friends at a house that wasn’t his nor theirs. A house encapsulated by trees, and for this evening a fortress for his heartache. A place where he could hide from the pain that would come tomorrow, next [...]

Love to Me

As I cried my self to sleep last night I tried to remember what love looks like. My vision was blurry filling to the brim with water so I turned to my memory. Love to me has never been just one person. Love to me is all of my friendships. Love to me is my [...]

Colder

*one unread message* For a moment I'm special, and in that moment I feel as if I could fly, but time passes and so does your mind. It passes from me and my Instagram DMs, our two-sided banter, to a dead space that only I feel. I'm sure your mind has moved onto a new [...]

Baby Steps

Alison has been through a lot; she’s experienced the ups and the downs. She’s been thrown around, lifted up and smashed into the ground by a little thing called love. So this time she knew she had to be careful. If she wasn't cautious it could end in pain like multiple times before. Dear John [...]

The Waiting Room

The waiting room is bland, almost resembling that of an airport terminal. Splashed with drab gray-colored walls and pale, sputum yellow airport chairs. All concessions present but already closed for today. Just multiple rows of chairs and enough room in between  for pacing. The “waiting room” game is never a game that is intentional or [...]

eleven:eleven

This seems like a story I’ve told before, even though it's the first time writing it down. Maybe I’ve been too scared, or maybe I only write to give myself closure and I wasn’t ready to close this chapter of you. But today I am ready. To write about time and about healing, all things [...]

Jenga

Disappointment happens every day. The thing about disappointment is it changes you every time it occurs. It makes you revaluate some of the things going on concurrently in your life. Are you even meant for the thing you failed at? Are you strong enough to make it through? Is this another bump in the road [...]

The Millennial Witch

Kneeling down, shag covering her knees, Portia pulled out what appeared to be an old hat box. The contents of which could alter someone’s life and soon would. Under the power and fear of a pestle wielded by Portia Wicca, were the buds of roses, nibs of cocoa and the nectar of a honeysuckle grind [...]
