Favorite Quote:
“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land
among the stars.”- Brian Thomas Littrell and Les Brown.

Skinny ghosts
Shriveled bones
A riverbed of veins running dry

Slit hope
Snowy cold
Haunted spirits & frozen lies

Bloody blades
Wintergirl rage
Frightful childhood memories

Thirty-three calls
Parents' brawl
Hungry hearts count calories

Stranger shame
Poker games
Desirable struggles to survive

Weeping sleepless
Sleeveless secrets
Hiding true feelings in disguise

Recovering faith
Self-conscious brain
Peppermint tea scents swirling above

Deathly casket closure
Healing scarred exposure
Screaming heartbeats cry for love

Inspired by the AMAZING, book, "Wintergirls," by Laurie Halse Anderson about a girl's struggle with overcoming her best friend's death and anorexia.
