Inside My Heart

If you could sense the emotions inside my heart you'd find confusion, fear, a sense of being overwhelmed, and a strong sense of peace. If you could see what I imagine inside my heart you'd see the walls I've built for protection slowing coming down. I know I'm not an easy person to get to know. I'm... Continue Reading →
