With these beautiful words that have fallen away from my soul- this time- my tears will dry. they will stain the pages with my essence/my being. And the pain in my heart will subside. Everything will fade just like bruises and cuts. But my being will live on in the stained sheets my words and tears have resided in and have left behind.

    Dear Em,

    This is absolutely beautiful. It takes a lot of talent to be able to express such emotion through so little words. I’m looking forward to reading more of your writing.
