Favorite Quote:
You know you love someone when you're lying in bed at night and you roll over to get that text from them and you're so incredibly tired yet, you still smile.

Falling down the corridor
I try to find the light
The darkness envelopes me
Holding me down

I claw at the blackness
Begging it to set me free
“The warmth and love
The light will bring will
Shatter me,”

It whispers, holding tighter.

“Stay in the blackness and
I will be the friend that never
Leaves,” It begs and promises.

Promises, like so many before
Always broken
But this time it’s by me
I break free of the chains
That bind me to you,

The sun glimmers through
A crack in my world
I reach toward it
And wake up

Nothing’s changed
But I know I have challenged
My darkness
And found me
