In looking over the broken shards Placed in jars, A greater understanding comes over me. It was simple to see where my Lack of trust was born, Oh so early. To have submitted to his seduction and manipulation, Before I could have known what was even happening, nor what he was taking; my sweet innocence.Continue reading “Trust”

Upping my Game

Dear Universe, I’m ready to step up my game. It’s now getting lame to keep playing the little games. I’m ready now for the twin flame. Ready for him when ready the same.
