Silence deafens
It screams at me from blank walls so I fill them with photographs
So they’ll seem less empty, and so will I
Silence welcomes
When the world is just too loud and too chaotic and too restless
And all I want in this moment is quiet
Silence echoes
From the depths of the empty beer bottles that line my bedside table
They promised fulfillment or at least escape the night before
Silence lies
It tells me that I am not good enough for a house filled with love
The kind that comes from the heart of a man
Silence comes
The moment I lay my child’s sleepy head to rest and surround her with pillows
So that she may never know what an empty space beside her feels like
Silence stays
Creeping alongside me even as I converse with family, friends, could-be lovers
Promising that at the end of the night, it will be the only one to hold me
Silence hopes
For the kind of intimacy that isn’t fleeting, isn’t built purely on lust and sexual conquest
But one that holds the br

This Is Life
You stare with disdain, condemning me with your eyes
Never one word from my mouth, yet you assume who I am
Calculating, in your arrogance, the sorry tragedy I must be
A waste of life, surely, to find my existence among such chaos
You stare at the interlock in my car and say to yourself,
"Oh, she's one of.. those," and quickly look away
Casting me off into the abyss, and scoff as I land
In a heaping pile of meaningless, decaying rubble
An addict, sure, but what does that really mean?
Yet another excuse for pissing life away into a gutter?
Clearly you are the wiser; let's hear your reasoning
How one with "so much promise" could tumble so violently into
I escaped.
By God's grace I found my footing and ran
With renewed strength and hope I presumed nonexistent
I am constantly met with resistance
But I refuse to go down without a fight.
I keep running, keep pushing myself forward
I sometimes have to remind myself of where I've been
In order to understand how far I've tru

You know what? Fuck life. I feel like I've been kicked in the gut over and over and over and this asshole is standing over me just laughing maniacally as he kicks the ever-living shit out of me. I've been flattened by a steamroller.

Vik and I have split. I am writing this because I need to vent somewhere, and I honestly still love and care for him so much I don't want to announce it anywhere else. I am doing it here because no one knows us in real life, so there can't be any biased comments/opinions.

But I am just gone right now. I know this is the right thing for us to do. We both deserve to be happy, and it is clear that we are never going to be happy as a couple. It rips me apart inside. But my heart tells me that as much as it hurts, this is what's right.

The good thing is that it is completely mutual and Vik has been absolutely wonderful about the situation. He is completely supportive and wants to keep things friendly and civil between us. And of course, we are both still going to raise Lily together, just as separate people living separate lives, I guess.

Ok, I can't even lie, this fucking sucks. I feel like I am the reason why we didn't work out. I feel like I am impossible to have a relationship with. I feel like I don't deserve a good man. I feel like I am going to be alone forever.

Where do I go from here?

I am passionate about and inspired by all facets of photography. I don't want to just photograph one style; I want to capture all of it, from babies and children to nature, architecture, and the abstract. I always search for beauty in unexpected places.
