To those who love from the sidelines and don’t expect anything in return.
Poems about what changes, and what stays the same.
A short story about chasing unrequited love.

Disappearing into the darkness.
A short story based on a very real time.
We weren’t looking for each other.
Dreaming the days away.
Spring can really hang you up.
…and I’m totally losing my mind.
