word of the day: sand


slips through my fingers


slips by slowly

i cup my hands

so the sand stays in them

wish i

could cup time

in the same way

i wish that

time wouldnt speed by

zooms so fast

that i almost

cant catch up with it

and like the sand

slipping through my fingers

hours slip into days

and into weeks, months


make the most of time

for we dont know

when we wont have it any longer

  1. Dear Carol Anne, I enjoy keeping in touch with you. We’ve been friends for over a year now. I care a lot about you. I wanted to talk about two things. The first would be to ask all your insiders, including the darks, everyone, to make a promise to your therapist for no self harm or suicide. The second is, if you can’t do the first, please put trigger warnings on the posts that mention them. I really shut down when I see them because I know what it’s like to lose a friend and I don’t want to lose you. Thanks, Rebecca


    1. Sure, thing, Rebecca! And, I am so sorry you got triggered. I will put trigger warnings on the posts which contain a trigger warning in the future. Sometimes when the kids are in a tough spot, they forget to trigger warn things. We don’t want to intentionally trigger anyone. We’d never ever wwanna do that. I am going to talk to Eileen tomorrow about self harm, and suicidal ideation. I think a no self harm contract is in order, again, so sorry we upset you. Sending a big hug and lots of love your way. xoxo

      1. Thank you Carol Anne. Glad you all know that I say it out of caring. And thanks for talking to the kids about
        trigger warnings. No self harm pacts can be powerful and save lives. Glad you are discussing it. Hugs, Rebecca
