Unrelenting Ache

I miss you But the words rang hollow Because honestly What I feel is so much more than Simply missing someone It’s a hole in my chest An ache unrelenting A part of me missing My heart in tatters Air unable to penetrate the walls of my lungs Blood run cold Vision blurred by tears […]

Phoenix Rising – Chapter 6

Looking up into her young lovely face, I was reminded again of the frailty of life. The brevity of it. Chances missed. Opportunities forsaken.
