Are you happy? You look happy. I'm glad.
I mean, it hurts a little deep inside because it used to be me that made you happy but still, I'm glad.
You deserve to be happy. You're wonderful.
I remember that I was happy during our short time together but…Posted 2 years ago
I've never wished to act on those cruel notions
That cross my mind at times, but I've felt anger,
'Cos I've been hurt and suffered vile emotions.
At these times, wrong decisions lead to danger.
I have responsibilities. I can't ignore them,
Unless some n…Posted 3 years ago
I feel a change is coming in my story;
My heart's blown cold, then hot, from north to west
If I am brave and honest, maybe--glory
Will manifest itself. I'll do my best,
Retaining bound'ries while regaining sympathy,
For my antagonist's grave burdens' w…Posted 3 years ago
Pyretta! Dear Pyretta, Sapphic Fire!
Of all the souls I've known, I love yours best--
Affection and compassion fill my breast
Whene'er we are together. I admire
Your courage, perseverance, and your power;
Your gentle reassurance when I'm stressed
And in…Posted 3 years ago

Well, I was very anxious today, all day, ever since about this time last night, which is 10:30 PM. I have a lot to talk about; one thing at a time, I guess.
I was brave today, after spending most of the day scared and blaming myself for a Grievous Life C…Posted 5 years ago

I talked to my boyfriend about my feelings of jealousy for my best friend's relationship.
"I get that you are protective of him. You've been really close for a long time."
"We were close, then we got together. It's all I know. It's a pattern, one that …Posted 6 years ago
"She'll call." My girlfriend patted my shoulder comfortingly.
"No, she won't. She's stubborn like that; Taurus and all." I stared down at the blank screen of my cell phone.
"Well if she doesn't, forget her."
"Forget her!? She was the only person who di…Posted 6 years ago
After lasagna and a nice night with my boyfriend, I had a chat with my best friend. He spared me the details of his recent weekend getaway. All of his sentences began with 'I' instead of 'we'. I found that interesting. He'd mention her name, but it was in…Posted 6 years ago
There's no place that can feel like home
Without someone who's kind to you.
Most any place, if I'm alone,
Fills me with heartache ochre-blue.
The grandest palace, opulent
With every comfort you could want;
The cozy cottage; finest tent
Without your love…Posted 6 years ago
I thought I’d get to kiss your face
And hold your hand when you were sad.
I thought you’d stay, that you would wish
My company when times were bad,
And when you thought of times to come,
You’d seen me there beside you, dear,
In peaceful camaraderie. I’m…Posted 6 years ago
I could see better before; I recall that night clearly.
I was clean, intact, as night fell. I think you were, too.
It was easier to make things out then, the contrast was stark
And I did not notice the nurse turn sick and pale at my innocence
A stone …Posted 6 years ago
"Alone tonight?" The bartender busied herself with mixing drinks while I sat at the far end of the bar nursing the drink I'd ordered 40 minutes ago.
"Where's your handsome sidekick?" She meant my best friend. We had been meeting here on a weekly …Posted 6 years ago

There's no one else who's helped me know my self,
My heart, without dissembling or disguise.
You showed me how; I put fears on the shelf,
And viewed myself with sympathetic eyes.
That was a boon beyond all former gifts!
I'd never guessed that I'd had …Posted 6 years ago
I'd like to call and ask if you'd stop by.
It's been too long! We really should catch up,
But ev'ry time we visit, I get shy;
I'd like to change that. Come, and fill a cup.
Whenever we're together, it's the same:
It seems no time has passed. Our friends…Posted 6 years ago
Dinner was terse.
Another Tuesday night, another dinner hosted by my parents. Generally, I looked forward to our Tuesday nights. My parents were both good cooks. I loved both of them, though it took me a long time to grow up and appreciate them.

I hadn't heard from you in several days, my dear close friend. Sunday when I thought of you I was suddenly sure that I would hear from you later that day, and that you had decided that it was best to stop all contact with me, that you could not feel any m…Posted 7 years ago
If you ever feel empty,
Tell me, please.
I have bountiful love
I’m hoping to help you
Fill the gap and help you feel whole.
And because I have this love,
I have another offer for you:
If it’s not me you need,
I’ll willingly help you to find
The things you…Posted 7 years ago
Leaving the kitchen light on
Tells me that there’s dishes to wash there before going to bed
Turning your blinker on
Lets me know what you’ll do so I won’t panic
That magnetic sign on the dishwasher
Informs me whether the dishes inside it are clean or …Posted 7 years ago
And now, like a spirit, your voice rings once more
How confusing to put them together:
Your voice, and your words, I could never expect
You would speak this way to me. Can we reconnect?
With the return of hot, muggy weather
Comes a new conversation. …Posted 8 years ago
You were so sure I'd wronged you, you'd made me believe
It was surely my fault; but then, how?
All the pages grew soggy and limp with the turning;
There were so many leads, but they all left me burning,
But the smoke didn't spell out an answer; well, n…Posted 8 years ago
I never understood what I'd done that was wrong,
Why you exiled me thus from my life.
Was it something I did? Was it something I said?
I strapped me to a table, I taped still my head
Underneath the hot lights. I was cut with a knife
But my brain wouldn…Posted 8 years ago
His ragged breath jagged on, each with an untimed pause preceding it. He stared down at the pulpy mess that had been his best dancer and most skilled voice actor. He didn't seem to understand what he was looking at. Then his eyes glazed over and he starte…Posted 8 years ago
