That’s how I Feel..

When I take off my heels after a long day at work,  And my feet find even footing again.  That’s how you feel.  When I take that first bitter sip of strong strong black coffee,  And the world feels right again.  That’s how you feel.  When I take off my work clothes and snuggle into…

How do you touch me without using your hands?

There is somebody out there who wants to be with me I can feel it in the way he looks at me The way he tries to hold my hand The way he ruffles my hair  Or how he kisses me on the forehead.   But I don’t remember any longer  What falling in love…

My idea of Love ❤️

I think of someone tall, with broad shoulders, a smile that lights up their eyes. Some salt and pepper hair, somebody who hugs with all their heart. I also think of how they pamper me when I am low, how comfortable they are with my silence. I feel how I might feel in their arms…

Hollow yet Heavy

People choose to leave. They disappear. They choose to end. People take away parts of you. They leave you feeling hollow. Things echo in you. With time the echoes die down. With time. But every time somebody leaves, Every time someone leaves with a part of you, Why do you feel heavy? Why is there…

The Dinner Date

We met each other at Chili’s. Just looking at him warmed something inside of me. It was only the 3rd time that we were meeting each other. After a chaste peck on the lips he sat down opposite me. I was both grateful for the distance and upset by it. Dinner was good. He had…

The Day After the First Night

Pick effort. Pick yourself.

What takes effort is love Patience Generosity Gratitude Forgiveness Anger Jealousy Impatience Hate, are easy. It’s super easy to do the easy thing. We stick to the hard things as long as they are easy. The moment it gets tough, you ask – is this worth it? That point, precisely then is the tipping point….

Walls- only keep you in

Sad eyes on happy faces, So much hunger in round tummies, That thirst on wet lips, Driving by yourself in a long long car, Unlocking the door to a huge huge apartment, Curling up on the couch, To look at others do the same. Something is wrong somewhere. When did we start being so scared…

Infinitely Finite – Us

There is no shame in asking for help There is no shame in asking “silly” questions There is no shame in not knowing what to do all the time. It is shameful though- If you choose to ignore a plea for help, If you laugh at a question to which you clearly think you know…

Relationships are so much work.

Relationships are so much work. You’ve got to listen To understand To care To speak with love And then do it all over again. In between all that, There are those “I am crazy about you” moments. When you feel that this. This is what the universe had been planning for you. That kiss. That…
