she watched her bridges burn down

were the bridges burned
or were they set ablaze
in a daring act of self preservation?
making a light in the darkness,
enough to guide the path away

she suddenly shows up on our doorstep
like a stray, an orphan
simultaneously guarded and vulnerable
desperate for help and a solid place to rest
but terrified to trust it, to trust us

know that this bridge is fireproof
we celebrate your resilience
and acts of resistance
we will hold your hand
as you grieve over the ashes
and labour beside you
as you begin to create
a new foundation on which to stand

Things I would tell you...

  • It only takes a second to go from feeling loved to lonely, that's how you know the loneliness is a lie
  • I love doing things and going places on my own, but every time there is an event I wish I had someone to show up beside me
  • Brownies made out of healthy ingredients taste healthy, you can't trick yourself
  • Baking is good for my soul

In June I was...

Listening... to Macklemore on repeat preparing for the concert at the end of July
Reading... things that are healing. My favourite was Carry On, Warrior by Glennon Melton
Watching... One Tree Hill all over again from the beginning
Eating... home made funnel cakes at work and BBQ steak on my birthday (thanks to my little bro)
Drinking... delicious fruity red wine sangria
Wearing... flip flops only, no more toes suffocating in shoes this season
Feeling... celebrated and loved
Wanting... less raining and humidity
Needing... a check up for my car
Thinking... about my life's work and the future
Enjoying... turning 30!
