Being Known

The Courage It Takes to Move On

Betrayal hurts the most by those who know our heart

I started to think about you.
How you often said,
Share anything and I’ll still love you.”

I believed that to be true.

As uneasy as I was,
I poured my heart through a sieve
and told you what made me so blue.




Authentically sharing stories and poems from the heart about our experience of being human and our ongoing process of becoming perfectly imperfect. Writing mostly real and raw with a sprinkle of microfiction!

Poetry is my first love. Inspired by intuition & my chunky ginger cat. My favorite place is by the sea, sipping espressos and daydreaming.
