You were dishonest
By omission, as they say
When she is no longer the one
You want to walk slowly with
And she runs ahead…
You’ll ask, “Still friends?”

Author’s Note: When you are seeing multiple women, especially if you are intimate, and run in the same small circles, a heads up is just common courtesy, and when you have an interest in seriously pursuing another woman in particular, just say so. And, if you are serious, it might be a good idea to stop sending flirty texts or photos to others (read: me).
When I saw you
Make a life
Shared the same heart
Missed each other
Our lips met
You didn’t see me.

Don’t tell him I think about him as much as I do
He might get the wrong impression
Don’t tell him he makes me smile
Or his scent is my obsession.
Don’t tell him I’m smitten
It’s just a crush
Don’t tell him from afar, my heart swells a little
It’s too much.
Don’t tell him I find him unbearably attractive
He already knows he’s handsome
Don’t tell him he’s kidnapped my heart
He’ll hold it for ransom.
Don’t tell him I like to kiss (a lot)
He’ll attempt to make me swoon
Don’t tell him I’m catching feelings
It’s too soon.
Don’t tell him you think we make a cute couple
Because we do
Don’t tell him I dreamed about us already
He’ll think I’m crazy, too.

Author’s Note: For Shane. He knows.
You think he’s so present
As he turns off his phone
Holding you, your attention
Surely he’s yours alone.
You think you’re so special
As late night he slips in
Then sleeps in so sweetly
Next night he does it again.

Author’s Note: Too many tales of infidelity lately… This was the trick of my narcissist, unfaithful ex-husband. Beware.
Just know that I want you back
Hurry before I slip through the cracks
I don’t know where I’m going
I can’t stand this plateauing
I don’t want to hear you
I just want to feel you
I don’t care what you say
Except you’re coming my way
Send chills down my spine
Skin on skin smoothly divine
Rumbling through my soul
Present with no goal
I so deserve this
All my boxes checked
Until we feel perfect
Did I say I want you back?
I meant I want you on your back.

Author’s Note: It’s hump day.
Interest does not equal commitment.
Repeat to yourself until you understand this.
And can act on it without falling.

Author’s Note: Attraction is a more dangerous drug than crack. Follow your heart, but take your brain with you.
Restless he heard the wind beckon him…
Let yourself in.
Press your face next to mine.
Hold my body very close.
Let go of every trouble.
Get lost in my sensuous skin.”
He rose quickly eager to muffle her sighs from within.

A storm rises
From the raging sea;
Are they aware of the crackling in the air,
Or are they only aware of the electricity between them?
Waves crash against the sand,
But they do not drown;
~Just L (March 2, 2017)
He was not where he belonged,
But he couldn’t follow his heart,
His dreams would not come true,
They always fell apart.
He knew he should leave,
As the love had fled long ago,
But he’d lived so long in the dark,
Fearing the light he didn’t know.
He believed in angels and yet,
When she appeared out of thin air,
The timing inspired some debate,
Recognizing not (the answer to) his prayer.
He found peace unparalleled,
Each moment close to her,
Felt solid, familiar and intimate,
All he desired is to surrender.
He knew where he belonged at last,
In his heart he felt no strife,
But he was caught in between,
The devil and the rest of his life.
~Just L (November 8, 2016)
I look up as you bend down
And place a kiss squarely on my lips
Never closing our eyes
Not caring who is around
Our spark hard to disguise
Oops, we just let “I’m crazy about you, too” slip
You say I’m trouble
I say I’m just your kind.
~Just L (November 5, 2016)
Author’s Note: I have a picture of this exact moment in my mind.
