Remnant

It’s peculiar, this feeling you give me. I always assumed that love was this grandiose expression, fancy dinners, vests and dresses, diamonds and pearls. Maybe love is still about those things, but then I met you, and suddenly all of that changed. For the first time, I wanted nothing more than to simply be with […]

Theophobia

Are you afraid of God? I am afraid. Of a lot of things, truthfully. But of all the things that keep me up late at night, none hold as much power over me as do you. Do not mistake me, I do not find you scary, though the way your eyes can bring me to […]
