“Fog”

She loves the state of fog she’s in. It fades the trees to painted wisps of smoke, and all she can see is the faint yellow line dividing the black asphalt. The lack of scenery in the headlights allows no distractions from the daydreams cruising through her head. The Cure’s “Lovesong” blares from the walls of the car doors,… Continue reading “Fog”

Some things may always sting you when you remember, but you have to figure out how to live with it… knowing that those places, or that language, or… Continue reading “Nociceptors”
