New Home for My Second Year and Beyond

I have so much gratitude for this blog. It helped me get through the worst of my grief. I can't tell you how much I have cherished and appreciated those who have commented and contacted me personally. Thank you.

Having said that, I have decided to follow a dream and I have started a new blog. One that chronicles not just my journey into the second year and beyond but also how I am going to use what I've learned in my grief to chase my dreams. To chase life. This one stays, just as it is. I will be linking to it from my new site for anybody who might need it. I hope it helps somebody who needs validation or to connect to raw emotion.

When you're ready, please come find me in my new place,

Writing to get through

The Pain of Dreams

There is a place 
Where you are
With your smile, that smile
Eyes gleaming like stars
You have been waiting for me
I collapse in your arms
There is so much you want me to see
Oh, how I have missed your charm
We dance and laugh and make love
I never want to leave
You are all I ever want to be a part of
I take in all of you and I believe
We can be together forever, again
You are my soul and I am yours
But then I feel you pull away as you grin
I know what this is and everything blurs
"One more night for us." You whisper gently as you fade away
My tears turn to sobs as I feel you go
"But I need forever!" I wail
It's too late and once more, the world is hollow
A poem I wrote during a rough time. It is a reminder of pain and how far I've come. The book I'm working on will have all of the writing/poetry/rants/raw grief that I channeled in my first year. I am actually quite excited to release it and show how pure pain can turn into hope and joy finding their way in with the grief and a new way to see the world. xoxo
