The Chaos of a Family Man

I’ve been on vacation with my girlfriend and her daughter the last week. A two year old woke me up every morning. She would smile with squinty eyes and giggle. The kid is adorable. At night I stayed up late with a woman who…

This is not my skin

It’s kind of fitting. When I got out of the car, the last song on the radio was “This is not where I belong.” It’s not. It’s so apparent so often. I feel restless. I want to crawl out of my skin. Maybe it’s…

PSA: Hang out with your single friends

This isn’t a woe is me post. This is a look for your single friends post. A woe is me post is pointless, since none of you live remotely close to me anyway. I went to my brother’s for Easter. I went Wednesday evening,…

Cory

When I saw him, looking at the stars, I could have sworn there was a twinkle denoting tears. When he heard me approach, his gaze coming down from the heavens upon me, his quirky smile, with the right lip curling up, appeared instantly. He…

The Pool

I saw you in the hot tub today. Your unruly black hair. Beautiful brown eyes. That confusing Asian and Hispanic heritage. Those adorably dorky glasses. I know she wasn’t you, I know a number of reasons she clearly wasn’t you. But when I first…

Icicles prod me Numbing inside. Heat of exhaustion Of trying to care Warps me against Icy embrace. I try to care. I ask for help. The voices speak. But no one is there.

Love Song

A – Z April: L If happy ever after did exist I would still be holding you like this. All those fairy tales are full of shit. One more fucking love song, I’ll be sick. – “Payphone”, Maroon 5 Ever have that song you…

Equivalent Exchange

So the first two lines were the kicker. Thought it up last night and didn’t want to lose it. Pretty sure it’ll end up in a story. You saved one man’s soul At the cost of poisoning another’s. We don’t care who we hurt…

Bigsbee and his Heart

Ever have a good day and yet there’s a shadow descending upon you? I can’t sleep. Here is my tribute to hopefully placate insomnia. The club was filled with dancers wearing one piece outfits with fishnet stockings. Black netting wrapped around their bodies, with…

Doors

A loving man opened the door, though it was slammed in his face, and she stood at the threshold. She said, “I want to see inside, but I can’t enter.” “Why not?” She looked at another door and entered into another man’s home. The…

Reality

Tears run down my cheeks As I know you’re not here.

Anglorum

"Before the sea she stood, still as a statue but for the wind rippling in her loose lavender-grey dress and toying with her black hair - it billowed in the salty breath of the ocean like a flag of defiance."
