Too.

They said I'm too soft. I live with my heart on the outside. I'm made of flowers dripping with honey. The scent of newborn babies lifts my spirit. Strangers in love tug on my heart strings. I want to hug everyone, I kid you not. I cry, a lot. I. Feel. Everything. They told me… Continue reading Too.

The Other Girl Part 2

It's inevitable isn't it. I knew I'd end up alone. I knew he would go back to her. They always go back. I boasted of my independence. I didn't need to be attached. "I'm a free hoe," I always said.

With You 

With you.  With you everything is easy. Laughing is easy. Conversation is easy. You are the thing I never knew I needed. You are my happy place. You fit me in a way I never knew was possible.

I know what I am worth and it will never be equal to the words that come out of your mouth to define me. I know what I am worth and it is not the limitations your imagined self importance places on me. I know what I am worth and baby, that is one thing… Continue reading More

Lonely in Love

"Stay away from lovers who only want you in parts, Legs open. Mouth closed. Beauty-full. Mind empty. Silence is a good look on you… No wonder your smile is their favorite feature. Beware of them.  Of lovers who love your lips but loathe your voice Their kisses come with possibilities of cutting your tongue away."… Continue reading Lonely in Love
