    I Love You

    In my young beautiful life as a child I played and found joy in most everything I touched or saw. In the uncertain years of being a teen and trying to find the place I belong I loved with fear of losing and cried with hurt of heart, yet found time inbetween to act out...

    Looking Back At It

    I was raped 7 years ago.  The memory of it comes back randomly and when it does, I play the scene over in my head.  When it does, I feel sick to my stomach.  I don't want to cry, I don't get angry, but my stomach just feels funny.  No idea why I do that. ...

    Life Was So Easy When Summer Lasted Forever...

    Remember that? the feeling that summer lasted forever, and there was so much thrilling potential, just around the corner - all the waterfights, camps, sleepovers, parties, family visits, and feasts that summer held in store?   I reckon its always summertime in heaven.
