I don’t do this often, but lately I’ve been thinking of you more often than I care to admit. I’m surrounded by a lot of almost-somebody’s and it’s taking a toll on my heart. Everyone either wants something or I’m not enough to have them give me their time. These people, their eyes wander a little to far off away from my eyes when we have conversations, revealing their true nature. Continue reading “Breathless”

I’m very curious

When you look at yourself in the mirror, what do you see? Do you look at yourself in the eyes and see your spirit reflected back at you, confident and eager? Or is it lost and searching? I look at people and I get curious. Wonder what your eyes are trying to tell me. Are you happy? Are you sad? Continue reading “I’m very curious”

Are you ready?

Close your eyes. Wait, don’t close your eyes. Keep reading…closing your eyes defeats the purpose of you being on here. Alright, keep reading and I’ll keep going with the prose I’m painting.

Imagine, yes, that’s better, let’s start with imagine. Imagine, you’ve lived a life of comfortability. You’ve lived each day in and out being comfortable with the people you’ve met. You’ve lived each day being Continue reading “Are you ready?”

Marriage and My Commitment Issues Part 2

Going through all that I have with this woman…all the heartbreak, the nights that turned to mornings having long conversations about how different we were, the paths we were taking, the places we were at and where we were going…all of that added to my perspective shifting dramatically. Being away from her mentally, physically and spiritually made me see her greatness in a way that I never had before. Continue reading “Marriage and My Commitment Issues Part 2”
