It’d tried to take her in those long ago days, tried to end her life. She’d kept breathing, endured. Was she alive? She wondered sometimes, heard tales of the dying while she lived, thrived alone, created. There was damage, but … Continue reading

Invisible

A marble bench, the living passing by, “In Memory,” the bench declared to those approaching from behind. Looking ahead, couples merged, that life, was for her the life that never was, society rendering her unheard. The hollowness bestowed, she’d filled … Continue reading

Living apparitions on the edge of a dream, here, but not gone, somewhere in-between. Walking an edge cutting off their dreams, knowing society has no room at the acceptance inn. Unfinished lives striving to become aware, different, outside looking out, … Continue reading
