“Untitled 3/26/22” by Cortney Joseph

In my dreams, I have searched far and wide, For the sight of you, Just once more, for a moment more.

a little random.

One Year In And It Feels Like…

… my whole world is still crumbling and falling around me. I could ramble off the titles of a million and one songs, and all will be applicable to what life for 365 days without my little brother has felt like. Each day is supposed to get better, easier; but truthfully, you’re just waking upContinue reading “One Year In And It Feels Like…”

#NaNoWriMo2020 & Other Thoughts.

So, it’s been a while… again. I still haven’t been myself and in the past ten months it’s been a lot harder to get back into my writing than I anticipated.
