The day I said goodbye

Never did I imagine,this day would come,But I knew,I just knewIt was time to say goodbye,On the last day of that July.~As I sat,Tied to those machines,I longed to be free,and just be,To breathe in the salty air,And watch the sun dissolve into the sea,Like the sugar cube that melts into my tea.~But I couldn’t…

The moment we made it

What gets me through the hard moments is envisioning the future when I finally feel closer to my dreams. It keeps me above water on those days that feel endless. Medicine is hard.

As I reached in, And grabbed his heart, Quelled by infarct, Couldn’t help but wonder About words unsaid, Paths untread, Moments…

The journey from skeptic to Swiftie

Manifestation of my Mind

They say the pen is mightier than the sword, and it has held true for my life. Writing has helped me through many a tough situation. Feelings that I can never express have a way of manifesting themselves when I put pen to paper. It’s trying and exciting and I can’t imagine life without my…

A Physiological Conundrum

Most of my posts reflect my mood as I write to express, entertain and evolve. Hence sometimes the posts are heart-wrenching and melancholic and at other times they are simple and light.
