“I love you, but I’m married now.”

I don’t have many regrets.  But the one that I do have is not telling him how I felt.  I was so lost back then.  So confused.  So desperate of love and validation.  He never knew how much his words of passion birthed butterflies in the pit of my stomach.  He never knew that his … Continue reading

I cried myself to sleep last night.  I couldn’t bare the pain in my side.  The emptiness that lingers there.  The hole.  The bareness of my soul oozing out freely because  the lack of her.  My rib.  The protector of my single breath.  The concealer of my wandering soul.  It’s no wonder I walk hunched … Continue reading

I want to just run.  Run far away.  Farther than ever.  I don’t know where I would go.  I don’t know if the thoughts will ever stop.  I don’t know.  All I know is that I’ll be in a different place- around different people and hopefully they will silence the thoughts of her.  All of … Continue reading

I find it completely mind numbing to stand face first in the sight of her.  She makes me melt.  All of her rests so sweetly beside the still and quiet waters of my inviting soul.  I want her to want me.  I can’t stand to be left out or blocked from her view.  God, why … Continue reading
