August

August came and went and so did our loveWrapped up, packed away our summer clothes along with our memories, Out of sight but most definitely not out of mind.The chill of September swept in and cooled us down,Leaving me wondering why you’re not here to keep me warm, Autumn sweeps in, along with feelings of…

Space

There is an abyss which fills in the gaps,You asked for space, But what you forgot is that I already do such a good job of filling in the silences,A whirlpool of the unknown circles my head,I sit and think of all the reasons it could be my fault,Any sign I might have missed that…

Reset

A deep guttural breath,Cold fresh air fills my lungs,I am grateful for the reset,Closing my eyes and smiling to myself,There may be tough moments, But, I will always choose love and hope,Grateful for connection & communication,The open space to listen without judgement or fear,To know that I am loved and supported,Even if it hurts, I…

Toothbrush

My toothbrush is missing you,Not knowing when you will bring your lips close,Caress its neck with your strong hands,Your fingers long and slender,Grip so steady, yet so soft,Moving me ever so slowly back and forth across you,I am missing our closeness,You being mine and me being yours,Missing you keeping the cupboard doors ajar,Clamouring into them…

Happiness

Whatever you are feeling in this very moment, Just know, you deserve happiness,The anguish, the enveloping darkness,None of it will remain,Just know, you deserve happiness,No matter how many people you choose to push away,Some will leave and some will remain, but the fact is,You still deserve happiness,Not the temporary fleeting kind,But the one deep in…

Sitting in Lonely

I realised the other day that I don’t know how to simply be,How to sit in the pockets of silence in my life and let them bubble over,I avoid letting the wall ebb and flow with my griefThe losses in my life,I keep myself mentally busy so the feelings don’t catch up to,Creeping in as…

Doors

Some swing openSome slam shutSome creakSome don’t make a soundSome appear to be haunted Some are ever reliable,No matter; they are all still doorsWhether they are ajar or notThey will in some way openIt might not be your door or your time, But a door will open for youAnd reveal the path you were meant…

Is Protecting Your Child From Trauma A Good Idea?

The other day, I was rewatching an episode of Red Table Talk and Jada mentioned that because of the way they raised their children, in particular their daughter, she was so used to being around healthy, safe men- that growing up, she wasn’t able to discern problematic male behaviours. This got me thinking about our…
