Lock & Key.

“It’s easier to clean house this time around, ya know.” “Totally.” “It’s like these pieces I’m selling and giving away have spirits that are attached to them that have run their course in my life. I don’t know why I hung on so long.” “Letting go isn’t easy. And hope is even harder to let…

Cue the 8-Ball.

“I can’t just sit around and play anymore. I can’t dilly-dally. I don’t even have much time to write in the coming month. I’d be able to fit it all in if I were as manic I was a month ago where 2 hours of sleep was all I needed, but now everything is slowing…

DUSTY OLD BOX

Healing was right around the corner, packed away in a dusty old box and labeled with tape. It was too bad you moved before you saw the transformation, that you now only hear about as she whipped herself into shape. It’s not all about affirmation, but your silence is deadly.

Time to say ‘au revoir’ and pack up the past Out…
