two sides
to every
but there’s

There’s two sides to every situation, but there’s often a middle ground. You have the ability to place yourself anywhere you want on that spectrum. Be a victim, be a survivor. Be somewhere in between, if you’re not certain. Just know that no matter where you land, you’re not the only one there.

Moondrops at Sudden Denouement

I’m honored to be featured with Sudden Denouement once again!

She is the wind in winter, carrying away those salty tears. She is the call of the majestic eagle by day, and the hunting owl by night, ever watchful. She is the anger of rumbling thunder, the static synapses of heat lightning in summer. But, if she is gone, she remains, beating within your broken heart, and pointing the compass to lead you home. Because she is the light of stars glittering in the darkness.
