Throwback Thursday: Untitled Start (circa 2020)

From wall to wall 

I rise and fall

From day to endless day

It’s just easier that way

The words were scribbled in near frantic handwriting accompanied with  smeared smudges of ink from her tired wrist resting on the pages. Evidence of a tear left its mark in the lower corner. Tara reread the last line over and over again:

It’s just easier that way.

Closing  the lime green journal with her hand-lettered name scrolled artistically across the recycled paper cover, she sunk down onto her bad. Exchanging the journal for a soft, white throw pillow, Tara realized she had no memory of even writing these words.
