  1. I have followed your site on Facebook for a month or so, and I was chuffed to find you have a blog here too! I’ll be coming here all the time, now! I’m so happy, lol.

  2. Hi Stephanie. I’m hoping you can help me. I have deep feelings for an old friend. The timing is not good right now for us though. I have some things that I need to work out on my end first. Despite our mutual interest in each other, she drifted off into the darkness yesterday…siting your poem on FB as the only reasonable explanation for her departure…

    Here is the poem..

    “When I fade off into the darkness that you don’t understand. I hope you wait for me to step back into the light. But if you choose not to, I will thank you. Because if you never understood the dark side of me, you certainly aren’t worthy of how beautiful my light is. My light is only for the ones who never left me alone in the dark.”

    I sent her a text message after I read that. I told her that I read her post (your poem). I told her that I am available to talk anytime and that I will never leave because I can see her in the dark…I’ve said this to her before today…

    As author of this wonderful poem, can you help me understand what it means to fade into the darkness, understanding her dark side and returning to the light?

    Thanks so much. Your work is incredible.

    1. Rob,
      I too am very curious as to your inquiry to the same poem. See I too have lost someone recently this year to the darkness and she cited the same poem. My sweet, Beautifully strong daughter.
      I too would like some perspective, even though I know in my heart that no two paths, lives, or reasons are the same. They are as unique I’m sure as those who cited the poem.
      But in any case, hearing from the author may provide even some glimpse of hope or understanding that to me would be enough until I really know.
      Did you hear. Ack from the author?
      Can you share? Please?
