A Time Long Forgotten

It’s taken some time To regain what it’s like To hold onto what we love, To feel the hold of what we know. The faded memory… Read more A Time Long Forgotten

R.I.P. To The Best Ones

*Warning: talk of suicide and disabilities* I have spent hours starring at this blank page, watching the cursor blink as the letters on the keyboard taunt me. I have been putting this off for weeks.

A Melody
