You Still Love Me Today

I’m still learning that love Is subtle some days. That a short answer from you Does not mean your love For me is in jeopardy. Just because the butterflies Have faded to the background today Does not mean they are not there. There is no need to panic The tidal wave of passion Will take me once more.   -May…

Working on Your Jealousy in a Relationship

Since jealousy usually pops up when someone outside your relationship is seemingly getting close to your significant other, most people would believe jealousy is about your SO or the other person. But it’s time you face the music and realize jealousy nearly every time is all about you. Jealousy only really pops up when there are issues of self esteem,…

Dead Branches

These thoughts rotting inside my head are not my own I know that and yet I cannot stop thinking them. I’m sorry it’s not just the two of us in this relationship. Thank you for being patient and kind the gentle hand to soothe my worries away. Even as I sway, I always stay rooted in you. And I will…

I Outgrew You

There is no ghost of you in my bed He left to fill her sheets just like you did So don’t hit me up late night wanting me to fix you You choose your words carefully Every line directed at her Peppered with your vulnerable desire I am not her stand in, I am not your second choice. -June 2017

Second Choice

I’ve talked before about ways to know if you’re wasting your time on a guy or not. These guys, for a variety of reasons, are emotionally unavailable. Of course, it’s never so black and white, instead he’s more open and available some weeks or some nights and you think you’ve finally gotten through to him. And then he’s back to…

Love You, Love Me Not

I could love you if you let me but you keep me outside your heart my fingertips stroke at the pulse of your vulnerability No, I guess you’re keeping your heart safe for someone else My thoughts race for hours stirring up all the ways I don’t measure up I’d drown in self doubt if Sleep didn’t take mercy on…

The Dating Curse

I think most daters consider themselves cursed in someway, whether it’s the fact they have so many first dates and rarely make it to the second or they say the conversation of moving in together always ends in breaking things off. I, myself, am cursed. Every time I start liking a guy and decide it’s time to delete my dating…

Why You Can’t Be Friends With Your Ex

When a relationship ends rather amicably, it makes it harder to really sever the ties. For my situation with Mr. Right, it was a logical decision to end things, not an emotional one. So it took longer for the emotions to align with our minds. It’s confusing trying to be friends with your ex. You read into conversations more, rethink…

I’d be a Really Good Girlfriend

In honor of Valentine’s Day tomorrow, I want to talk about how great of a girlfriend I would be. That sounds soo conceited and I feel insanely weird for making this post but if I have to embarrass myself just for one person to have a good take away from this article then I’ll do it. And its good to…

Sometimes it’s Just not Meant to be

So there was this guy I once had a crush on and it lasted many, many years. Nothing ever really happened so there isn’t much of a beginning to talk about but there is an End. We got in a fight because I felt the friendship was very one sided and I was probably also jealous of this girl he…
