Wednesday, 7:24Pm

Wednesday, 7:24 PM. I kicked my front door shut with a satisfying slam, a full grocery bag in my hand. My perfect day at work at the perfect job was less than perfect – my boss had expressed doubt in my ability to survive in this position. And that had a deeper effect on my psyche than I’d like.

A Week Ago

A week ago... to this hour.... I woke up amongst the crumpled sheets, and saw your eyes slowly open. A week ago. your hand interwined with mine, and I felt your lips touch my own ever so gently. A week ago... I became breathless under your gaze, and you gave me butterfly kisses as you laughed. And as the afternoon sun grew warm, hand in hand, we went exploring....Read On

Every Time

I miss you. You left, with almost no reasons and no explanations, and expected my life to revolve as it once did. The pain was expected, as was the emptiness. It would almost have made sense, and almost felt right, Except… This wasn’t supposed to end like this. This wasn’t supposed to hurt so deep.

The Road

The Road is uncertain ahead, but I have no fear. Moonlight guided my every step, setting the dark cobblestones aglow. I move forward and the doubt from my soul eases. For far too long now, I shielded myself from the world Stemming from the insecurity that, once upon a time, defined me – My heart is scarred, my soul, while not broken, heaves with weight. I thought I knew what I was and who...Read On

What She Isn't

She sits at the smoky bar alone by choice. The neon Bud sign casts a blue glow on her face. Her shoulders straight, her elbows slung casually across the back of the barstool. Jack on the Rocks, Red Sox on the TV. She isn’t worried about her makeup, because she now knows her smile can startle from across the room. She isn’t worried about her hair, because she now knows the cascading...Read On
