What if we were meant to be forever after In spite of the story to date In separate bedrooms, down the street filled with laughter Perhaps our match Doula knew us deeper Watched you for a full year before our introduction Knowing full well you were a keeper What if we split too soon due … Continue reading Could Have Been A Legend
Being a hopeful romantic never leaves me hopeless.
Exception Proves The Rule
What if I were to sit next to you Would you want to kiss me? Let it be easy Instead of playing cool -- What if our togetherness was fated From the beginning? We didn’t fear leaning in Finding our differences miniscule –- What if everything since Was a holding place? To make us better … Continue reading Exception Proves The Rule
You are cool as a cucumber Until Aries enters the house Warming your starchy skin in a pair of worn Levi Strauss I love freedom and risk You landlocked by protocol Exhilarating, tender, a contradictory coupling, we helplessly fall First child’s flame singes virgin wings Ever challenging your M.O. Too easy when your taste for … Continue reading Love Signs

I Want Someone
In 2019, I want someone who holds my hand as tightly as they hold my heart; And misses me desperately when we are apart. I want someone who adores their life and family And embraces every moment honestly. I want someone who is silly and can laugh; And yet willing to fight on my behalf. … Continue reading I Want Someone
Where Two Rivers Meet the Sea
Tropical flowers are red, The sky is blue, The sun is hot, And so are you. Water taxis are white, Yachts are rare, The water is shiny And so is your hair. Roosters crow, Chickens lay eggs, Force is strong, And so are your legs. Mountains reach, Up to the skies, The sand is sparkly, … Continue reading Where Two Rivers Meet the Sea
What is it about me?
And she replied, I can, and have. I am at a very free stage in my life. I have been deeply in love and I have had my heart broken. I have spent the last year guarded, practicing my yoga, and in reflection. I have done my fair share of playing, but when pursued, a … Continue reading What is it about me?
