“It’s gone!” I shout, staring into my bathroom, covered in a cheerful wallpaper trying to imitate spring but failing spectacularly on delivering that promise. I hold onto its glass door as if it’s a lifeline. I gulp but my throat clicks dry. “This cannot be...

A Letter to My Child

A Letter to My Child

ACCIDENTAL NANOWRIMO

I wake up with a mother of all migraines, like lightning, hammering my brain. My mouth feels like it’s full of cotton balls. Everything hurts as if I got hit by a car. Was I? I groan and open my eyes. Above me, a humidity covered surface that looks a lot like a...
