Lead me by the hand and take me somewhere new. Show me all the hidden the parts of you. Let’s dance beneath the moonlight with the grass between our toes. And laugh with the wind whispering a language only we both know. Continue reading
Quiet whispers and grasped hands as the breath of winter begins its dance. Swept up in a swirl of white dancing beneath the moonlight. Your sweet caress across my lips. A cold shiver as your touch lingers. Your eyes glisten as you stare into mine whispering a final ‘goodbye’. Continue reading
It ends with love
My first was my friend who teased me with “love” We held on too long Too afraid to move on He was too little too late And let me slip away Then I met my one With him, I was ready to fall and fall I did He gave me peace and kept me safe… Continue reading
I fell. She fell. He Knew.
There are key moments in life that sticks with people, shapes them, molds them. Good or bad.

Considering the options for deliveries were growing slimmer, this was a real panic. How long are they going to… Continue reading

The city shut down all transportation, including flights, trains, and even didis (Chinese Uber) as an effort to control the latest Covid 19 spread. Sanya is or should I say was,… Continue reading
Just your normal millennial trying to make it in this world. I love going to new cities, eating new foods and meeting new people- but I usually prefer the company of my cats. I’m inviting you to come laugh, cry, travel and eat with me on the crazy ride we call adulthood.
