So I Will Wait

Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes

I was never the girl to be picked up from a bar. I was silent in school. I didn’t see my dad too often. Now you are reading and thinking it’s going to be one of those stories about daddy issues. I don’t know if it is. I have insecurities. I know I’m fucked up…

Heartless

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

“Heartless girl” they called her, you see her sitting with others, smiling, laughing, messing around…have you looked beyond those smiles? To see what she’s feeling inside? To see those lines of stress across her forehead? The dark bags underneath her eyes, how her smile drops all of sudden and her eyes take on a distant…

The Seasons

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

The winter reminded her of the way he held her close. The smell of the fireplace in her neighbor’s chimney, the pine trees, and evergreens and gently falling snow glowing orange under the street light. Heating was expensive, so they used blankets instead. Blankets and each other. She learned what made him the person that…

Let Go

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

You told me, if this doesn’t work out, we will let go of each other, let’s not just stay and be hurt. I agreed. Because I knew, we wouldn’t ever be perfect. But I did try. I tried with all my heart. Against all fiber of my being. I remember that day you held my…

The Old Fringed Skirt

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

Sitting by Mom’s old wardrobe, wrapped up in my bathrobe. I’m trying to touch that doorknob, reaching for the skeletons deep within for there’re memories that I need to see lying in this dusty mess, This teakwood treasure chest but Mom once told me, “Don’t you peak in! Don’t play in the wardrobe! There may…

Don’t Love Him

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

Don’t love him until you have seen him argue with his Dad. Until you have seen him cry over a movie or a song. Love him when he’s late for dates. When he’s early to sleep or when he forgets to call back. When he doesn’t text at all. Don’t commit to him until you…

Dear Diary

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Dear Diary, why do I feel like the emotional side of me is simply falling apart? Today was crazy, I spent my entire day with one of my really close friends BUT when I walked into a place that was dark, shady and somewhat cozy;  a shadow overcast me. It was a shadow of nothing…

Giselle

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Pale Woman watches, standing by a tombstone. Calm and unsmiling. She points to a nearby epitaph. Giselle. I found life’s warmth so wondrous but sometimes I must weep. When the grey air cries its frozen tears I see her all around me, blowing her kisses on the freezing wind. Snow flies and the world…

Glass Of Insanity

Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes

I’m seated by myself tonight, dead within at this terrible time. My mind needs its final end And it must come from you inside, the accursed bottle on the countertop, Calling through this hellish night.   I’ve seen the corpses of many men, strewn around my dreams. I know each name, I know each face…

He Was Hope

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

For a girl who was clamored in her thoughts, he was a mystery. For someone who was skeptical about the world, he was hope. But most of all, for a girl who had decided to take on the world alone, he seemed perfect. But yet she was afraid. Was it that they never met? In…
