I also enjoy words and language, trying to find the best description I can. I enjoy being lyrical. I also love ending a book, this writer's joy at the accomplishment of it.(less)

Stillness

I want to hear wind and the rustle of leaves. I don’t want the sun but rather the greyness of rain. I want to hear my thoughts and the sound of my tires on asphalt and the distant laughter of children. I want the time and the silence to remember who loved me. I want […]
