A Perfect Date

high off life
or cotton candy
or funnel cake with strawberries
hair red
bleached & baked
by chlorine’s date with the sun
jean shorts still heavy
from rapids promising
a shower or a soak
knees wobbly after
using a rollercoaster to
air dry
teddy bear bigger than you
cause you’ve looked 12
since you were 16
and 16
since you were 20
cheek bones higher than usual
from the smile
grown permanent on your…

GOD bless the exes!

GOD bless the exes!

Okay so I know this may sound weird but I am really thankful for my past loves.

No seriously. (Stop laughing and/or giving me the side eye.)

I was tweeting yesterday about understanding your personal love language. Your love language (by my definition) is the way you show love. It can also be the way you best receive love.

I have found that the most clear way that I show love is by devoting time…

Simply needed to write a few things out

Simply needed to write a few things out

So, I have found the need to write myself out of this depressed state that I am in.

Of course you wonder… “Why so depressed? Don’t you realize how blessed you are compared to others?”

Blah Blah Blah

Yes, I realized that I am an extremely blessed woman. I have a million things to be thankful/grateful for.

That doesn’t change the fact that I suffer from clinical depression and generalized anxiety…

Who gets custody of the “friend”?

Who gets custody of the “friend”?

The hard part about breakups is realizing who gets custody of the “friends”.

Seriously, this is incredibly tricky when couples run in the same circles. It often makes me wary about even dating someone who runs in the same circle as me. Why add more drama to an already uncomfortable situation?

Their friends were always their friends and only became your friend because you were dating them.

There are words there

From the moment our lips touched
I knew there were words there
I was prepared for my unexpected decision
to break rules set by the
stick-in-the-mud other half of my personality
Love keeping people on their toes
But I wasn’t prepared for the
split second…

The Reason

Let me be the reason behind your smile.

The random text message after a crazy commute.

The note in your coat pocket describing/encouraging your world domination.

The mental picture that causes the edges of your lips to stand at attention.

The surprise…

Tell them…

Tell them… That the sun rises in their smile and sets in their eyes… That they run through your mind like a child at recess… That their touch lights a fire and you can’t find any water… That the jade case holding your heart is open… Tell them… That they…

Letter to a poet (from 2012)


Dear Madame Poet,

Please stop fucking me with your words.

Your un-lubed clarity of the inside of my soul leaves me shivering.

Quivering in anticipation of the next few syllables

That you throw inside of me

Causing me to explode

Unlike any man ever could
