Silence is Deafening

The next few days were really tough for me.  The world had a grey cast over it, like a shadow I couldn’t shake.  It felt dark and cold and alone and I hated it. Breaking up has a myriad of emotions, like all grief.  It’s a process and I was still in stand still disbelief… Continue reading Silence is Deafening

The Day After Blindside

“Back To The Story” I left my girlfriend’s house and wasn’t sure what to do.  I don’t know about you, but when I’m upset, happy, sad, angry or virtually any emotion all I want is my mom.
