Even together, I kept you at a distance.

I looked at the drop and didn’t trust the padding,
or the safety chord for that matter.

you patting my shoulder and
telling me to take my time.




Bits & Bones is a collection of self reflection and expression. A mix of personal experiences, creative nonfiction and prose to move, break, and expose a soul.
