• The Cloak Of Shame

    March 4, 2018

    There are many things we do not know while still living under the veil of innocence. I did not know a woman whose babies died in her womb would labor before giving birth. The pain of standing beside a tiny grave at the tender age of twenty-one. I didn’t know about living this life in…

  • I Get To Use Your Name

    June 29, 2017

    Losses that paled in comparison to losing you, but losses nonetheless. I lost the opportunity to finish your bohemian baby room, with avocado green walls and fuchsia and teal accents. It would have been epic. So me, so you, so us. I lost getting to know my first daughter’s cry. I lost the opportunity to…
