I’m cold and alone and I’m dead. There’s no air in my lungs. My chest is as cold and hollow as a cave on a snow-capped mountain side. My heart no longer beats there. Frigid winds whistle through my ribs and the sadness inside me weeps like my favorite tree.
Days ago, I met with death face to face. The mirror, our meeting place. My two darkened green eyes stared deeply into hers. I tilted my head to the side. She did too.
“It’s time,” I whispered.
“It’s time,” she whispered.
And with that I turned away from her, the woman in the mirror who knew all of my secrets and all of my pain. I walked away from her and yet we’d never been closer than we were in that moment. The inner struggle was over. No more arguing with the woman in the mirror. No more arguing with myself. The choice was made. She was the victor. Or was I?
That was the day Riah Winter died.
“Gut wrenching, soul shattering, lyrically written, eye opening, and simply amazing” are just a few ways I would describe The Letters Written in White. This book gutted me in an eye opening way. It’s not pretty. It is built on all the inner demons everyone of us face. It will open your eyes to things you want to turn a blind eye to. It will gut you but you will love every minute of it. This touched home to me as I lost a friend to suicide just a couple of months ago and it really showed me that we all have our demons and what we do with them is how our story goes.
