(Have no idea what an inner child is? Check out this helpful page on subconscious psychology) Every day, you were someone different.

What I Would Tell Myself back on those dark nights
(Yes, this poem deals with suicide.

I hold a nameless feeling in me. Like sorrow mixed with hope mixed with the potential for so much power that my heart’s a water balloon nearly bursting. Or a watermelon detonating at the mere caress of a bumblebee. These veins, trembling as a gnat’s wing, crave to carve the arc of a hurricane intoContinue reading “A Nameless Feeling”
