Cover Photo: never far behind by Lauren Suval

never far behind

we are soft like water, but we don’t always flow like water. in tranquil motions among the rocks.

we are not always effervescent.

i like being by calm waters. water runs oppositional to a disposition with vast emotional tides.

water guides me. tells me to glide on through when need be.


moments exude transience, feelings are fleeting.


no matter how the sky aligns by the day’s end, the sun is never far behind.
