Leaning In

Replying to the last of my clients and closing Outlook, I lament the ticket to D.C. that will go unused tonight. I fight back a tightness in my throat that I’ve come to understand needs two fingers of whiskey to solve at the end of the day. No one did this to me. I always […]

Playing Fetch With Hearts

Like a yo-yo, I believe I’m playing a game until I realize the string and the yo-yo are both trapped in a dance. I’ve been here many times before and yet I always feel strange. This is not a home. I’d rather be thrown and have no one come pick me up just to end […]

Flash Before My Eyes

When the sun is setting on this life I skipped through, I will reverse and replay. I will watch my life and laugh and cry and never once during a love scene will I have to wonder “what if?” That is not to say I won’t wince or grimace at the times I embarrassed myself […]

The View’s Awhile

We can try hiking until we find exactly where the sunrise will look best. But we will end up cold and standing on a tilting rock to get an almost perfect view. Maybe if we hop in an air balloon—but then that would lead to us freezing away while we chase a pretty skyline.

No Time To Think: A Princess Charming Adventure

If love is a hotel… And my love is on the top floor… What gets me in the door? To the front desk? On the elevator? With a key to the top floor? (Of course that floor is locked and guarded by fearsome goons.) To the same room on the top floor? And into his […]

The Starting Over

I stir the cream into my coffee. The sky is lit with the moon and it keeps me awake enough to race with my thoughts. “Compatible,” I think. I keep getting hit with this word when I least want to hear it. When I make a play for permanence, the other party starts their doubts. […]

Brings Him Glory

I couldn’t think of something more peaceful to do than sit on the grass in the sunlight and let my warmth and the temperature of the grass come to one stable level. It is even more than touching snow until fingers freeze just slightly. Like flow. The beautiful mornings are given to us by God […]

Fitting Ghost

I knew you were true so I boiled inside just looking at you.Content believing anything outside an adulterer was a solid significant other. Though, while you were here, I was so so sad, finding myself trailing the house like a sleepwalking phantom. Too exhausted to remember not to be found where I ought not. You […]
