Wild Flower – Daffni Gingerich


We laughed. We drank. He was somewhere far off while I sat with my friends and debated whether I should text him. I think I’m losing my focus. But then again these shifts are making me sit on my ass and write about those flies that slam against window screens. They keep trying to escape the same place over and over. Reminds me of myself. I slip the screen open and let it free. I close my eyes and try get away but it all just keeps me here. I want to get away. I want to stay so I don’t miss the things that matter. I’m alive so alive. I can barely close my eyes for a second. That’s what this is, right? Well, I’m going to keep shooting for the best way to enjoy this this. I’m going to keep trying my best to love and be loved. Some days will be better others will need work. Keep grasping my hand please.

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
