I was born into trauma. a “broken” home. growing up, i was more warrior then child. i defended and protected. when my father pushed my mother, i was the one, at the trembling age of eight, who called the police. my sister and i tucked my mother in to bed at night, for years, being careful not to touch the knife that she kept under her pillow. as an adult, i was left to navigate a world that felt at best, deeply and irreconcilably unsafe, and at worst, downright dark and hostile. i’ve become better at navigating this world. but sometimes, every so often, something undefinable (or perhaps identifiable, depending on the circumstance) sends me back to that place of fear and unease. a place where my chest is a clenched fist and the world around me (no matter how visibly bright and beautiful) appears to be dark and, sometimes, barely even real at all. at these times, this quote is at its truest. because at these times, i am scared of myself. scared of the hands that made me and the dark wolf that lives in me, asleep with one eye open. all of this is to say... if you relate to this, if you too go through pain like this because of trauma or for any other reason at all, you’re not alone. i’m here with you, and so are many others. and, honestly, that, at the end of the day, is why i write. and why i share it with you. ❤️✨ #ptsd #ptsdsurvivors #posttraumaticstress #writing #writer #writers #writersofig #writersofinstagram #instawrite #igwriting #igwriters #poet #poets #poetsofig #instapoet #igpoet #poets #poetsofinstagram #poetry #quote #quotes #quoteoftheday #quotesoftheday #instaquote #igquote #igquotes #wordporn #wordsmith #spilledink #themissingink

Hi friends 👋 i have been quiet these days because i am working on developing several businesses and working on a book of longer pieces that are filled with light and darkness in equal measure 🌗. here is one for you: dawn peels back the curtain
with nervous fingers,
turning you to gold.
you- tangled in the grey
ocean of this bed.
this shipwreck heart.
i have known much
of departures.
transitory meetings.
things that do not stay.
as much as i do not-
stay.
some days even i
am a purgatory.
some days even i
am the most
perilous escape route.
but still-
right now.
the way the light
hesitates. then-
suddenly-
the way it holds you
like it has been
waiting whole
centuries just to
set you on fire.
yes, there is magic.
yes, it is here,
in a quiet,
certain room.

Lived and learned ✔️. i was talking about success today with a friend. about the myriad of definitions and the commonplace understanding of “career” and financial good standing. then i told him my idea of success, long brewed and crafted after much self- interrogation. my idea of success is living the most authentic life you possibly can. whether that means being a 5 star exec or a wandering troubadour. whether that means wearing sneakers or stilettos. whether that means working to live, living to work, or something in between. in my mid- twenties, i thought otherwise. i tried to live someone else’s life. i got the good job and the partner and the sweet, comfy live- in situation. i went stagnant. i numbed out. i am an adventurer at heart. i will always crave wide open roads and deep, deep freedom. i crave adrenaline and change and variety the way others crave comfort. i don’t want to know what tomorrow will bring. i will work 300 + odd jobs and be happy doing them because i’m collecting experience that i will write about later. i hated myself for a long time for being this way. for being wild. for not being able to play nice and “do what i’m supposed to”. but what’s the point? there’s no sense in hating your nature... in fighting it. these days, i have no 9-5 job and no partner but i’m doing what i want for the first time in my life. i’m building a life that will allow me to work and travel and create. different paths are not wrong ones. 💜✌️#inspiration #inspire #inspiring #inspirational #writing #writer #writers #writersofinstagram #writersofig #instawrite #igwriters #poets #poetsofig #poetsofinstagram #instapoets #quote #quotes #quoteoftheday #quotesoftheday #instaquote #igquote #igquotes #quotestoliveby #wisdom #wordporn #wordsmith #spilledink #themissingink

Tonight, i held my first ever writing circle, surrounded by creative and inspiring friends, new and old. we talked about creativity and community and holding space and listened to each other read. it was beautiful, and i felt deeply joyful, even as i committed painful memories and thoughts to the page. i have always felt most powerful at the masthead of something creative. i have always felt most energized as a leader, a trail blazer, a human riot. however, for years, a combination of mental illness and the stress from unhealthy relationships have caused me to shrink from this light. it was truly beautiful today to re-engage with my best self, to really own my power. to be reminded that she is still there and that she is hungry for more opportunities to create and to share. thank you friends who came out tonight and thank you friends who read my work and thank you to every single person who has ever created anything at all on this wild earth. i love you and am grateful for your courage everyday. ❤️✨#writing #writer #writers #writersofig #writersofinstagram #instawrite #igwriters #creative #creativewriting #poet #poets #poetsofig #poetsofinstagram #instapoet #instapoets #poetry #igpoets #quote #quotes #quoteoftheday #quotesofinstagram #quotesoftheday #instaquote #igquote #inspiring #inspire #wordporn #wordsmith #spilledink #themissingink
