Free in Love

“You get ready, you get all dressed up to go nowhere in particular. Back to work or the coffee shop, Doesn’t matter cause it’s enough to be young and in love.” —Lana Del Ray It really is enough to just make you go crazy. A bottle of Velvet Cinn Cruzan Rum, music–courtesy of Lana Del Ray–and midnight thoughts outside on the staircase, watching the dotted, starry sky and partially freezing, but feeling too good to notice will make you pick up your pen–or in my case a laptop–and write. A lot of this will sound similar to pieces I’ve written already. This past month I reached the height of my emotional roller coaster and just like all plots, after the climax came the descent. After quite the emotional breakdown I’m finally catching myself. And, despite how painful all of this has been, I don’t regret any of it because it’s part of being young and in love. These experiences will all build my character and for that I am grateful. This isn’t limited to romantic …

Wife, Woman, Friend

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that my beginning was his end; after all, we were just friends. Although in my world, I was his girl, so I would pretend to be his wife, saying shit like, ‘Its only so many years in a woman’s life’, right, so I gave him 3.

He hit me with the forehead kiss and told me that life was a journey and he was ready to explore this shit. And I was pissed. To me he was a hypocrite, like a fake preacher in the pulpit and he left me sick. And no he didn’t choose me, that doesn’t make him right or wrong.

Quick Rant: Clearing the air

  I’m so angry right now that if I write what I want to write then it’s not going to be pretty. So I’m just going to sit this here and you can put two and two together about what is on my mind right now. See, you give folks the world and they squander it. I’m here hurting my heart trying to figure out “Why don’t you love me,” but you know what? The better question is “Why the fuck do I love you?” From one to the next. I don’t know what Beyonce has to do to win Album of the year, and short of selling my soul I don’t know what I have to do to get these folks to quit playing games with my heart. But what I’m NOT about to do is keep letting folks decide how they get to have me. Know what I realized? When you compromise on their behalf hoping for more, you get stuck at their level. You get caught in this loop of THEM and …
