The Missplaced Rose Bush

You’ve seen that one rose bush that appears desolate on the side of a busy street. Nothing else growing around it. Not even near a well manicured lawn. The rose bush that has less than a dozen green leaves, yet is full of beautifully bloomed pinkish orange blossoms. Why does this rose plant grow even though it seems to be a weed? …


When did we

Last explore new experiences together…

I want that.

That feeling isn’t a craving…

It’s us.

The desire to feel the experience of how our souls express together…

Boundless moments.

Tethered in the ripples of time…

I want us.


Under

Next to each other

We feel the heaviness

Our desire

To find in one another

Moments we consume

In blissful connection

More…

Us…

Everything…


Her confidence was born from overcoming her birth. A birth that was also her death. She did not appreciate the little body she had to grow into. Nor did she appreciate trading in her yellow corduroy pants for a yellow sun dress. There were moments when she would start shit with other kids because she knew they were being bullies to her and or others. She knew the older kids were questioning how this non-verbal first grader, who read like a robot, and who was half the size as them, had the balance and tenacity to cruise up to the…


We met like most do, circumstantially, constrained to our work ethic. Chris, a recent transfer from our New York office, is trying to adapt to the Arizona climate. We stop by a café on our way to a meeting together and partake in the normal new person chitchat. Chris talks about his past work experience and politely appears inquisitive about me. I explain that I am a mother of two teenage girls and a young boy. I smirk and say my youngest is eight. The age gap clearly depicts the third wasn’t planned but I grin ear to ear and…


I was not prepared for the tidal wave of stardust that would emerge from our connection. I remember the first time we spent a few moments together; our connection was somewhere between telepathic and psychic, I could see where she had been, I felt her pain and loneliness.

Her eyes locked with mine, and an energy of supernatural awareness downloaded into my soul as she walked towards where I was hunched over. Whenever she made her way over to me, her walk would sync to the rhythm of my heartbeat with each step she made. …


People are starting to notice… Places we would go together… This morning, the store manager, at a place we would frequent together, mentioned with a hesitant statement, ‘you came alone today’. I looked up at her eyes, I wanted to cry. People noticed our magic together and now I am even being referred to as alone.

sighhh…

i found us 20 years from now…

“Waves Of Blue”

~Majid Al Maskati~
I wanna hold you close
Don’t wanna let you go
Be with you night and day
’Cause I’ve been feeling so low
Don’t have to ask me twice
You really take me there
I wanna touch your light
I wanna breathe in your air…


you just awoke from a dream… you were dreaming of me holding you in my arms… that special side spoon. on our left side… you would start to snore and i would take a few nibbles… you would moan awake…

shhhhhh….

i am there…

home, in my bed, i drift between wanting to chat with you and being okay with not having you to hold. i drove so far tonight only to be turned around because i don’t belong with them. i want to be wrong. i want us. i want everything. i want to be seen with you. i…


This is my gfs sock… I find humor in finding her socks laying around everywhere… she went to the doctor today… they forgot to talk about her sleep… for 184lb she looks good… sigh… she still tells me she feels fat… looks like she will be getting a stomach ultrasound… no she’s not prego… sigh… her gallbladder is fucked. Like let’s all start praying because it’s sounding worse than just stones… the doctor was like… when did the pain start? She says 2015… doctors face goes pale… your gallbladder is gone and I’m not sure what happened first but looks…
