From the Delivery Room

The beating of your heart plays on the machine across the room. In the distance, I hear a new baby crying and I can't help but think that soon, it will be you that I'm hearing. Your mommy's finally getting some rest. We're both very tired, but I won't complain. 

The Man on the Moon

I came up with this years ago in my head. I used to type it as dummy text when I was trying out a keyboard or just needed to type something—kinda like Lorem Ipsum. I have no idea why it stayed stuck in my head for all this time, but it's

Lessons Not Learned

I should have learned this lesson a long time ago. Searching for something that isn't there for so many years has taken an emotional toll on me. I've dragged myself through hell and back too many times now. I should've known better. I should've realized it sooner. Just like the
