“You only find yourself when you disobey.” Guillermo Del Toro

Just some random poetry before schools starts.

GARDEN

Wild and tamed,

Wild and free,

She flew through the weeds and pranced by the water,

Screaming, struggling, breaking free, running,

Feet slamming against the muddy path,

Thorns and vines dance around inviting her back,

But she’s gone,

And as the summer months go by, Bailey must choose whether to cling to a dreamy online fantasy in Alex or take a risk on an imperfect reality with Porter. The choice is both simpler and more complicated than she realizes, because Porter Roth is hiding a secret of his own: Porter is Alex…Approximately. Continue reading

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”– F. Scott Fitzgerald Continue reading
