Say You Love Me

“Opening up your soul to someone, letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, future, hopes, dreams… That is being naked.” ~ Rob Bell”

Checking For Exit Wounds

Every word from you sends an ache through my chest. And your words are never “I love and miss you too.” Your words are always safe, always careful. Making sure to keep the distance and space that I desperately want to erase. Every moment that I’m stressed I give in, and I let out words that are meaningless once they escape me and reach your ear. You’re a force field meant to keep me from getting too close again. I loathe you for it, while loving you all the same. And every time I look your way, I find myself checking for exit wounds.

About Me

– I am an ancient soul, in a modern body, with a futuristic state of mind.


“Learning from experiences is one of the ways in which we decide if experience may frighten us, weaken us or make us self-doubt, but it may also make us stronger. Sankofa teaches there are valuable lessons to be learned from the past.”
