Unstitched

 

Tucked away, in a forgotten drawer, lies a neatly folded shirt. It stays there, out of sight, but in my mind. The neckline holds an unraveled, broken stitch that I don’t want to mend because it was created by you. By a passionate realization that would’ve been foolish not to act upon. I think about the abandoned thread and shiver at the memory of your sweet lips against my bared chest. The fire of relief in both of our eyes. Finally…

We found each other.

The rush of blood heating our skin as our hearts leapt from our chests and entwined with one another. The mere beginning of our journey. The very moment I, myself, became unstitched.

Drift Dive – The Antlers

Erika Damn Castle!

I've always been told that I'm an adventurous girl and I cannot deny any of it. I would love to see the world and experience all of the stories it has to tell me. I am a child of the arts, developing my senses in music, painting, sketching, crafting, et cetera. But writing... it was a talent I believe I was born with. I'm not saying I'm an amazing (grammatically correct) author, just that I'm a natural storyteller. I can remember from the time that I learned how to read and write, I was eager to create my own world. I would scribble out tons of poems and short stories, then forcibly share them with my family (or even with my classmates). One of those stories resulted in the creation of this blog. Black Tears. As a child with an already wild imagination, I would always have these equally crazy dreams. One of those dreams was so vivid, that I awoke in the middle of the night and jotted down everything I could remember. From that point, the dream evolved into a poem, then a short story, and then to a complete story. It is the fruit of my 20 year procrastinating labor, and has been published into a book (the first of its series). Tune in to stay updated on the growth of myself as an author and the series. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have loved creating it! XX , Erika
