I am still mourning
The painful defeat and loss
There is no love here….
This love makes it bearable when I remember that I am still too young to be a single mother. And it brings some hope when I remember it’s the only thing I have left of you.

Like gunpowder, instead of sand, our time in little mounds
A careless spark from destiny, releasing death’s dark hounds.
I don’t want to miss out anymore. I don’t want to have a perfect house and life that looks like I have my act together when I am not able to enjoy life as it passes me by.
