One Day…

One day doesn't matter until"one day" is  now. - life I have literally spent more than a thousand dollars on psychic readings. I'm addicted to needing to know what will happen with "us." What "us"? The "us" I have created in my mind because it hasn't really become an actual union as yet. Yep! That…

note to a friend: alone.

Hey love, I hear you: you don't know how to move forward with him, or without him. Here is something I've learned: sometimes I've had to break-up within the situation. Wordlessly, I disconnected from the other to re-connect with myself. These have been the most fruitful break-ups I've ever had. They ushered in a visceral transformation that…

I Tried to Be Everything…

I'm watching the film Nappily Ever After for the second time, and I had to pause it and pen this blog when Violet said: "I tried to be everything he wanted me to be, but it still wasn't enough." Damn! I know that feeling like the back of my hand. I know that sensation like the sound…
