It has been awhile… been on assignment with one job. It ends soon, so the game is afoot for something more permanent and with more reward.

I guess I committed a sin by deactivating my facebook, because from the way people reacted to my decision, one would think I cheated on my husband and had abandoned my children- I have neither mind you…

So, with that small victory, I am free to kill time by writing, and NOT reading a friend’s political littering, religious badgering, or how someone leads an awesome life & how life is good.

my nights feel wrong.

i have no one to talk to,

no one to think with—

no one sleeps,

not even in our dreams.

my heart exploded inside

when you took that ride.

pieces of you scattered

on an asphalt blanket.

blood and bone

you wouldn’t come home.

i take comfort inside,

you’re a diamond

in the night’s sky.

3 wishes

i sat by the pond to watch the fish swim

but found myself within a sun puddle

and thinking of them

i wished them death

i wished them luck

i wish i didn’t give a fuck

i made some slippers out of seashells

so shards of beauty would be left in my wake

but all i saw were my shattered dreams

and broken hope

— and then i awoke to find

my thoughts scattered about my room

in journals and frozen on my computer

a distant bell tolls for thee

blood hugs a guillotine

animals prey on hollow remains

while tears collect in ceramic hearts

Infinity giggles at Death and Love

looks like Life took the day off
