The Beach House

Heaven Owns My Heart

Sadly, another beautiful soul has left our family.Despite the pain, anguish and anger we’ll remember all the love you shared with all of us.

Shelter

You provided shelter for me during the storm,Even when my pride wouldn’t allow it. You guided me secretly,Gently swept me off my feet.

The Faces We Never See

The face of weakness behind each degrading word. The face of ignorance behind each act of cruelty. The face of strength behind the tears. The face of insecurity behind determination.

Open heart

The sun cast a ray of warmth onto her skin, it felt wonderful to appreciate it after hiding for so long. A trail of past memories flashed across her mind. As if each cell of her body recalled the moments she refused to mention. She had always sensed the broken in her , but delving…

Shadows

You’ve been sitting in the coldest room since forever, searching for a reason to hold on.  A life reel flashes across the darkness. Shadows begin coming to life within seconds they turn to images of wonderful memories you’ve had, since you could remember. You try to look away knowing that the pain of the memories…
