Thanksgiving has come, and I can’t be more pleased. My family’s together. We’re laughing and singing and planning a feast. In this moment, I am home. There’s no other place I’d rather be.
A stunned crowd Stuck forever in the moment, Dazed by the life changing performance.
I cannot mask the bruises I hide; I cannot conceal the tears in my eyes. Your words stung my pride When you severed our ties.
Open doors to a future. A future where her pups bound through a yard clean and healthy. Where she snuggles soundly on a sofa.
I am perched on my fallen log surrounded by silence.
“You need a reliable career” echoes in my ears. Reliable? Says who?
My eyes bled theater and my hands molded acting. One drop of limelight touched my bloodstream, became a drug that plunged me into bliss
My heart raced in my chest but I pushed it down inside the pit of my soul. You slammed me against the windshield; left me in the glass.
Aphrodite became the fantasy, to rush after love and die for love like it was our mission.
The words become muddled Inside of the lines They spread across The face of a sign.
