    You know when you're having a really nice dream

    and you start to wake up? There's a moment when you're in a half dreamlike and half awake state. You have that light, happy feeling interspersed with a dose of reality. That desire to always stay in the dream. The struggle against waking up to reality. The fear and dread...

    I do not write when I'm happy.

    When I'm happy I live.

    Today I wrote a "Goodbye" letter to my ex

    husband. It was a suggestion I read online as an idea to help me let him go and move forward in my life. (It's not intended to be given to him) It was very emotional to write, but I'm so glad I did. I will now try picturing my life without him and I believe one day I will be...

    Quietly lurking in the shadowed safety of the

    trees of anonymity, I write the words of love you inspire in my soul. Then at dusk I gently toss them along the path, hoping you will find them like unexpected wild flowers growing free. I care not who they remind you of, I only care that they make you smile, and add a bit of...

    Angry tears burn in a way

    Tonight in solitude I sit.

    Desiring a touch that only a true lover can bring to me. Someone's who's touch drives me wild with unbridled desire. A breath on my neck a subtle kiss then a bite. Hmm this is what I want to feel... Bring it to me like only you know how. I'd love to collapse under your touch...

    My smooth skin moves slowly against satin sheets

    as I think of you. I close my eyes and disconnected moments flutter through my mind. I see us. You jump into my tears and swim to the surface of my love. I count the freckles on your shoulders and you sing to the sun. We taste the stars and get lost in the infinite sky. We...

    Angrily smoking a cigarette at the bus stop,

    late again. These coffee burnt hands and dark circles are your warning buddy. "Baby if you want, I'll give you something to really suck on." Flick the butt at you, red embers and all. It bumps off your nose, falls down your shirt. "Crazy *** *****!" Did you think I forgot?

    I see you dressed in sin waiting

    for that midnight touch. Waiting for someone to make it right. Waiting for someone to hold you tight. So you feel okay. So you feel alright. But baby, it won't work. You're covered in lies that you can't wash off.

    My Forgotten Passion

    I had lost it somewhere, between here and there.  The words no longer came like they once had. Maybe I was lacking the passions I once had. I missed writing and the passion it brought out in me for my love, my life, and my existence. My whole existence numbed and became merely a...

    that's lovely you have an opinion.

    Love is like a little child,

    Forget gentle and soft.

    I sink my teeth slowly into your skin. Tasting the hint of saline and musk. Leaving smears of blood red from my lipstick. Biting just enough to let you know you are fully awake to the world. Alive! Blood pulsing.

    Catching fireflies with our hands Our palms

    cupped, watching their lights flicker Whispering secrets to each other, Cherished yet long forgotten We run together in the fields, Chasing memories and fleeting moments How long do we run before we tire? How long can we stay beside each other?
