I’m caught…stuck in a swirling vortex of despair.

I didn’t read the blurb…I didn’t glance at reviews…and now I want to simultaneously hurl it away with a silent roar and clutch it to my chest and dare anyone to try and take it away.
Because…well, just because.
To be honest, I’m not feeling rational at the moment.
I’m overwhelmed.
Deeply affected and obsessing over the smallest details.
About a third of the way through, I knew…I just knew, but I didn’t want to believe it.
I’m staring at a blurry screen through my stream of tears and I’m just so…devastated.
And it’s an eerie coincidence that ‘When I Get Where I’m going” is playing on Pandora while I weep my way through this ramble of feels.
Do you know it?
It always brings tears to my eyes…..

“Yeah, when I get where I’m going
There’ll only be happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I’ll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah, when I get where I’m going
Don’t cry for me down here.”

That’s almost perfect….almost.
Cal. Michael. I won’t forget you…ever.

Is this a romance? No, it’s not. But it’s a story with surprising strength and impact.
Is there love? Yes.
Heartbreak? Absolutely.
How can you follow your heart when it’s split in two?
Which piece do you follow?
Which do you abandon?
I don’t know…I don’t have the answer to that.
I just wish…this, wasn’t it.
*sniff*…not sure I’ll recover from this crack anytime soon.



Triggers? Yeah…they are aplenty.


bookisforNOT everyone. If your mental health is fragile, if you feel alone, if you need…someone, please reach out. Your story doesn’t have to end because this chapter feels hopeless.
