Angry Tears

You’ve got me here shedding angry tears,Heavy and wet,Full of contempt and hurt,Tears I never thought I would be shedding over you,Tears, because I don’t want to have to get to know someone else,The familiar dance of starting over,The new introductions and surface level conversations,I don’t want any of it,I want you,Angry tears because you…

Fleeting

It’s just a season,I keep telling myself that,It will not last forever,Yet, I keep having fleeting moments of worry,A flash of your smile will hit my thoughts andJust like that the tears begin to flow,You became a part of me,I let my guard down,I let you in,But, it seems as if your feelings were fleeting,Maybe…

Auditing My Life

One of the things this pandemic has caused, is a reset. It has allowed us, if we dared, to look inward and address some of the things we have been putting off. All of our lists of things we mourn doing, our hidden fears, or suppressed goals. Forcing us to assess some of the things…

Why?

Breaking Patterns

I’ll start off by saying, I never wanted to be a single mother (I’m sure not many people do), I always thought that when my time for motherhood would come about, I would be settled and in a long term and long lasting relationship. Yet, somehow in my core, I kind of knew I would…

Loneliness

It’s kind of funny how it’s only in the dead of night,Your feelings of inadequacy creep in,You feel the walls closing in on you,And everything you think you know is questioned,Loneliness is a funny thing,It robs you of the joys in your life, even if they’re small,Feelings of being overwhelmed swirl in your mind,And you…

Why We Still Blog

As our four year blogversary approaches, I thought it might be interesting to sit and think about the reason(s) why we still churn out a weekly blog and maybe think about, is anyone reading this mini blog anyways? Sometimes, it’s good to do some housecleaning and there’s simply no time like the present to do…
