This collection is an ongoing series I revisit periodically. Inspired by my own irrational fears, the landmine-like triggers associated with PTSD, and the onslaught of anxiety.
Living in any state of fear takes major tolls on those inflicted, as well as those around them. Often times these fears can render a person paralyzed and unable to ask for help. Communication breaks-down, lost in a sea of no tomorrow. There are no words.
These pieces represent some of those dark places. Through hopelessness I seek to understand the pain and push through. Lift the mental burdens that challenge positive growth, knowing they are there and most likely always will be.
