Bump into … Read moreMore Than an Acquaintance -All In

The Peaceful Breeze of Sweet Surrender

Fellowship I seek fellowship. Time spent with someone who expects nothing of or from me. Someone who will allow me to be me, whatever that version may be. Someone I can be with, while still being on my own. Someone I feel no need to answer to. A companion, sitting side-by-side ocean side.

The Impressions We Leave

I can think back to when I was a little girl, around about 7 and I was sat at a table with my friends in the canteen at school and they all had finished their lunches. I heard one say “shall we go?” and another looked at me and said “sorry, *insert my name here*” … Read moreThe Impressions We Leave
