Two teenage boys.

What could go wrong?

Like moths, flitting around in the dark.

Yet, each was the other’s light.

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!
