Dictated Contradictions;

You know when you wake up and all your friends live somewhere else and you realize that you’re all alone because you’ve said no to every boy you can remember, except for the ones who said no to you, and you find yourself wondering if maybe you should’ve been more? More something, sometime… to someone, […]

Neu·rot·ic. n(y)o͝oˈrädik: adjective.

I’m very grateful for the people I have in my life, in all their many places, and capacities. I seem to have a unusually high volume of adopted families in my life, paired with an unusually large immediate family. Somehow, even with being an introvert I have hundreds of people in my life. I do […]

Close by;

oh the delicate life we live where love is so difficult to find & even harder to give we’ve invented ways to keep together in spite of miles, time & space between love suspended at our fingertips inside the cool hard glass we wish for miles to dissipate that this illuminated presence would be yours […]

Reckless Adoration;

You look so intensely at me your eyes brimming with loving words and affirmations. Yet you treat me so harshly, your actions flooded with misguided weaponry. You act with little regard for my life or my heart all the while your eyes are shrieking their longing adoration. Your lips pulled tight and tense over your […]

Our physical hearts are enclosed in a double-walled sac for protection, to anchor its surrounding structures and prevent blood from overfilling it. When we first meet people our figurative hearts are completely covered, “which protects the heart from any […]

This last Saturday was my birthday;

And I know that birthdays are supposed to be fun, a celebration of life. But I didn’t want to celebrate this year. I’ve never been much for birthdays or holidays, especially not when I’m the main attraction. But this year was different than even that. I didn’t want to celebrate this year because I am […]

“I’ll see you next week.”

“My hope, my home, my calling is in a heavenly country looking upward and forwards, longing to bring glory to my God, my Father whom is not ashamed to call me daughter. Seeking to serve Him in this world and the next, to spread His words, His hope, His love. He has put eternity in […]

Like a love Psalm, baby

I’m not going to write You a love song, because if I did it would be far too long. I must confess though, that I may never fully express just how intriguing and lovely You seem to be. I have not the words to speak, How will I ever tell You how much You mean […]
