Shimmer Of Hope

There are certain moments in a person's life that they can remember what they were doing on an exact day. August 6, 2016, which was one year ago today, is one of those times for me. It was the last time I've seen and hugged my 'wasbund'. I don't want to call him an 'ex-husband' … Continue reading Shimmer Of Hope

Hidden Strength

I meant to write this ten days ago As a way to mark a year passed Since the day you said I had to go - How this year has gone so fast.   That day came and went - And so did more days Without the memory's torment Part of me is amazed…   … Continue reading Hidden Strength

Set Adrift

During this time last year, I wrote on different stages of my thought process as I sought out help for my anxiety and depression. For those of you who have followed me over the years, you may recall how I bit the bullet and kept those appointments with my therapist. If you're new, here are … Continue reading Set Adrift

Memories

Yes, I took my time moving on, Telling everyone I was taking it slow - Countless boxes piled high, Scared of what I'd find inside.   Memories buried in the dark - Hoping they stay where they're parked, God, don't let them rush into my mind - I want to leave all that far behind. … Continue reading Memories

Rest Of Forever

The sound of the clock in that quiet room, How it resonated against those lonely walls. Oh, How the ending that I felt coming did loom - No matter how loud my heartbeat would call…   Wanting, wishing, hoping for us to last forever - Some way to keep promises that we both made. The bonds … Continue reading Rest Of Forever

Icy Touch

Icy Touch Broken heart and clenched fists Not a stranger to agony's stinging kiss. Somehow, still not prepared for this - Thirst for vengeance, so hard to dismiss.   Death's icy touch grazes yet again Never relenting… never showing mercy. Human flaws, consequences inhumane, The end came too quick for his journey.   Neither old age … Continue reading Icy Touch

Hello, Goodbye

The Autumn of 1996 was such a roller coaster of a season. My mother had been to and from the doctor's so many times for treatments for her cancer. She had Lymphoma, Non-Hodgkins, and a lot of times she had to stay over night or for weeks at a time. I lived near the High … Continue reading Hello, Goodbye

Goodbye, My Dear Friend

  Eight years ago, this summer, I remember being in a one bedroom apartment with my then fiancé (now husband). I had just moved here, to Kentucky, in September of 2005 and never doubted that decision. Though, I did want something more that was always a near constant in my life. A dog. I asked him … Continue reading Goodbye, My Dear Friend

Photograph by Susan Reed Purple Petals Caught somewhere between child and adult Sitting on the cold concrete with you..
