Flat Lining

Flat Lining

Behind the Poem: I've probably struggled a bit with depression since I was a teen. I'm convinced that I'm one of those people who is sensitive to fluctuating hormones.

The Victory!

The Victory!

Today I had a fight with technology. It's a fight I know well. We have a love hate relationship. Printers are so great when they print.
