Excerpt from Parallel Hearts:Preface
His brutal honesty hits me square in the chest, like an invisible dagger jabbing me over and over again until my heart breaks open like the promise I couldn’t keep. Crumbling beneath the weight of his words, I slide down the wall until the bathroom floor catches me like an old friend. I can’t breathe and the burning in my chest ignites every time I replay his voice over in my mind. Why did I let myself fall so easily, even when I knew it wasn’t right? Like drops of rain with no river to call home, heavy tears fill my eyes and pour endlessly down the sides of my face. I should have known, I yell at myself, slamming my fist against the floor until my hand feels as numb as my heart. I should have known not to let him get close enough to hurt me.
