Backtracking to Make New Memories

There are places, sounds, smells, and sensations that are linked to not only specific timeframes and memories but also to people and feelings. Places in particular that I avoided for a long time because they were just too painful to revisit. And when I first started to go back, I saw the past everywhere. I... Continue Reading →

Why I Journal?

I would probably go batshit crazy if I didn't! I found outlets for my thoughts and my frustrations in a lot of ways, but mostly through my creativity. And as you guys know, writing and pictures/videos are the ways I express myself creatively the most. But no matter how much I write and share, my... Continue Reading →

I Love You, and I’m Sorry!

I'm sorry that I haven't paid attention when you've been sending me all the signs. You tried so hard to tell me that I was being way too pushy and needed to back off a little, and calm down. I'm sorry I ignored you when you tried to communicate with me. I'm usually way better... Continue Reading →

The Question ● POEM

Behind locked doors She turned off all the lights Closed the curtains Filled her tea with salt Whispered to the empty And asked the only question She feared an honest answer How broken am I?  ☼ ©Christina de Vries
