This book does touch on some sensitive subjects and may contain triggers for some people. It is not meant for readers age 17 and under.
I am broken.
I am trapped in a sea of darkness with no way out.
I found him when I was at my worst, wondering if life was worth living.
He is everything I am afraid of.
Tall handsome, strong.
He tries to piece me together and me whole again.
But, I’m too broken, too lost.
I want to live, but fear consumes me.
There is a darkness that lingers no matter what I do.
Kat has been through hell and back. This is her story, as she tries to break through the darkness.
I feel like I’m drowning, like the darkness is consuming every inch of my soul. I’m desperately trying to claw my way out of the hole that threatens to consume me, but there’s no light in sight. I’m trying so hard to free myself, but something keeps pushing me deeper into the black abyss.
I’ve tried to figure out what causes it, why I feel the way I feel. But the truth is, I don’t really know why I am the way I am. I don’t know exactly what triggers this emotional blackout, but when it happens it is the only thing that I can focus on. This darkness is the only thing I breathe. The only thing I care about is making the pain go away, no matter what the cost.
When I take a minute and think about it, there is something terrifying, yet, oddly peaceful about the turmoil that rages inside you. That moment you think you might finally be able to end it all and drift into an uncaring bliss. I know people won’t understand why I do what I do. I’m okay with that. I understand that what I do isn’t considered a natural action or reaction, but for me, it’s what helps me get through each day. It’s the breath of air that I need to survive when I feel like I’m constantly drowning.
When I’m in that place, there is only one thing that helps. Only one thing that helps pull me from the darkness that threatens to take me from the living to the dead.
I live in the wonderful and naughty Sin City aka Las Vegas. When I’m not writing, I’m working in the legal field or playing with my four, yes, four dogs.
When I was in grade school, I was your classic nerd. I spent more time reading books “above my grade level” and getting lost in them, than paying attention to the people around me. I loved the journey each book would take me on, I still do. When I was thirteen I picked up a pencil and wrote my first hundred page story. It was then I fell in love with writing. That moment I realized that I could not only lose myself in books, but in my own words.
I currently have several works in progress, but I’ve only recently begun to share my writing. Thanks to some serious encouragement from some amazing authors and friends, I’m taking the leap. So far, I’ve loved every step of my journey.
Whether you end up liking my work or not, I appreciate that you took the time to check out my work. <3
