The days are longer now.
When the rain falls,

The temperature is higher-

But not between us. I sit on the porch,
while you sit in front of the television.

We haven’t been together in years.

Alyssa found her love for writing in high school, when she was challenged to keep a journal. It became important to her and from there she began to write poetry. She wrote and self published a book of Christian-themed poetry titled Knelt Down. Living in the Poconos with her husband of one year, Alyssa continues to grow in her writing.
