You’ve Given Up…

Navigating My Triggers

I am a runner. Nope, not the running shoes, heavy breathing and sweaty running runner. The I-no-longer-feel-happy-safe-settled-or-off running from relationships like a track and field athlete. Being home quarantined allows you time to do a lot of thinking. Some of that thinking may not be so good, but ultimately it allows you to take stock…

Teenage Love

It’s hard to take a step back, when you’re seeing yourself through everyone’s eyes. The everlasting couple, never separating one without the other, The odd standard of longevity when in fact things weren’t what they seemed, They ooh and ahh over your love story, yet you can’t quite seem to understand what the rom com…

Void

Vacant,Nothing fills the space you left,I carry you in my memories, Even though you’re still very much here,Hollow,Is how I am left after you,Wondering how I got it so wrong,Trying to understand the initial appeal,Empty,With so many whirling thoughts,Spinning, spiraling in my mind,Wondering how to feel, how to think,What to feel and what to think,Yet,…

Out Of Sync

Broken promises and missed opportunities. We spent our time feeling things and never speaking their truth. Too scared to bring life to them, Instead they began to grow fruit and strength, Knocking us both out of kilter. Orbiting but never in the same atmosphere. Speaking, but never really hearing. Feeling, but never sharing. Bottled up…

We’re unhappy about things, but we’d much rather complain, but do nothing about it. Then there’s the debilitating fear of the unknown, of having…

Addressing The Angry Black Girl In Me

Outspoken. Yes. Passionate. Yes. Opinionated. 100%. Sensitive. That too. Negative? I’ve been called worse. Like most people, I’ll fully admit to being complicated and multifaceted. As much as I can be a social butterfly, I tend to keep new people at a distance and not let them know the true me- call it protectionism. I…

Option

I’ve realized I am an option to you, Something to easily push and pull away, When the wind changes and doesn’t suit, You retreat and put me on mute Someone to tease and play around with, as a temporary high, You keep me sweet, in order to have an option on a lonely night, With…
