Vanquished

The battle is over. Even demonic ghosts cannot be fought and all that’s left of you, my demon, is a ghost. The how and when hardly matter, all I know is you have been vanquished allowing me to someday find peace. What’s left of you are scars and patchy memories which will fade with time. […]

Days like these

Some days you put on the corset, climb the mountain, take the castle, slay the giant and still have enough energy to Netflix and chill with the prince you just saved. Other days it takes just about every ounce of strength to get up in the morning, brush your teeth and go to work. Just […]

Swim, little duckling
