We filled the space between worlds with a silence so deafening, it generated its own gravity, forming a new planet devoid of color, brilliance, emotion, and sound.

It was barren, just like us.

In those darkest of moments, I hold on to all that remains with blood on my hands and scars in my heart. All this time I've been trying to find my way through the thicket and bramble, catching my flesh on the thorns and craggy branches that wish to keep me confined. I rip and tear, and tirelessly fight against those prickly restraints.
.
But after a while, in this infinite forest of shadows and forgotten light, I've made my home.

I feel you with every breath I take.

The photo is mine.

I feel the cold raindrops on my warm skin, lightning flashing in the sky and thunder crackling in the wind, sending a current through my senses. These moments remind me of you and every moment our lips touched.

Forget the dangers.
Regret is a far worse
punishment than fallout.

You. You showed me that my past doesn't define me. You give me strength to recognize my demons and overcome them. You are the wild light amongst the darkness.

I've always been about building positive relationships while sharing my words along with some that speak to me. That has never changed and it never will.

And no worries, this doesn't reflect anyone in particular.

I know, because I do the same thing to myself. My inner critic is always there, whispering in a low voice. It always knows what to say, where to strike where it will hurt the worst. But, instead of giving in, I choose to ignore it whenever possible.
