You thought this would discourage me? No. Not this time.
I envisioned myself as a little cherub - pudgy cheeks, pigtails, big smile, but when I walked past my reflection, I was an adult, with a sullen look, dressed in black.

The ice, so loud, as I stood at the sink stifled by the deafening silence when I just want to gently drown in the sun of the promised land.
She’s like a broken jar of honey.
