Scattered and Broken

It goes a little something like this: I can never tell if I wake in the morning from the ever pressing cold (which somehow finds it way through the layers of blankets and overthrows I attempt to smother myself in) or to the persistent chirps and meows of my cat’s desperate plea for his morning […]

To Love or To Leave?

Reconsidering a relationship because of abuse and adultery is one thing, but leaving for the sake of simply not feeling it one morning is different. That wonderful man or woman you vowed to love and hold for all the days of your life, will always come shy of pure bliss. No matter who you end […]
