Sometimes I tell stories. Most of the time I rattle my soul until I break and my heart spills out onto the page.

"I cannot jump the distance. You'll have to toss me!"--Gimli, LOTR

I am a complete nerd. I got the Ring of Power for my birthday.

Book recommendations:
The Oath--Frank E. Peretti
Lord of the Rings--J.R.R. Tolkien

Song recommendation: "Awake" by Beckah Shae

I'm going to meet the King someday!
And I'm super pumped!

to all the friends who never said goodbye

your memories are scattered around my existence
the tattered corners of a life strewn through my own
i can’t forget all the days we spent together
the blazing hot sun frying the playground until
our hands sizzled at the touch of it
sweat rolling down our backs like we were oceans
and summer was the moon pulling our tides
back and forth back and forth
running inside for lemonade and talking
about all the paintings and the sculptures
we spent long hours making by hand
together
together
together
i thought you said you’d always be there for me
and you still are but in a bad way
i just can’t keep you out of my head
my memories are really just a scrapbook of you

    Trust a serpent not to bite and bite it will. I don't know who said this but we really need to know whom we trust. The consequences are just too scary to even imagine.
