The Problem

I think of checking up on you  But then I remember that  I asked you to make changes  for 2 years and you never did. So I know you’re still  exactly where I left you.   -Jan 2020

WE ARE DIFFERENT BUT ARE WE EQUAL? 

You have shaped me. I am brash to combat your meekness. Your strength is so quiet  I sometimes discredit its perseverance. Mine is hot and loud.

UNLEASHED TONGUE 

I have no qualms about speaking up when your politeness squeezes your throat. I will make your voice heard to those dressing you up with their own ideals. I may approach a subject as delicate as a bull charging red but I am on your side even if I do not share your finesse.

I ask things of you again and again And time after time, you give. I couldn’t do half the things you’ve done for me But you make it look so easy, baby. Thank you for all that you’ve done And all that you continue to do. I’m so lucky to have you.

I fall apart as soon as you leave I need you so much right now And you let me fall into you with open arms. You make it so much easier to bear this weight. You put me back together again. -September 2018 +

Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil

You’re scared of good things happening because they always get ripped from you and you have a devil in your ear telling you you don’t deserve it. Remind me to kiss the woman who brought you into this world with deaf ears.   The lack of security in your heart keeps your mind on guard for the graveyard shift. You’ve seen an…

Do You Date the Guy You Know You Won’t Marry?

If you’re in a crunch and don’t have time to read, the short answer is No.   I mean yes, sure you could date him as long as you both know the deal: that it will eventually end so that you can each marry someone else (if you happen to choose that marriage is for you). But that leads to…
