Here is her own short bio.

This is her unedited guest post.
Poetry: The Ripple Effect
I am numb—
One walks in and
A drop that sends ripples
Then come the tidal waves
Crashing against my being.
I try to reply
But tears rise and choke me.
I inhale to calm down.
But the stormy sea knows no bounds.
I go under—
Drowning the illusion of restraint,
I turn to hide
Lest the world may see
What a wreck
You have made of me.
Wait until the numbness returns.
And I’ll, again, be the serene sea.
