He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not…

Each of us has our own definition and way in which we express “love”, however, despite the diverse ways we express ourselves, I believe it’s fair to say that there are some things which may be considered universal. Consider for a moment, that your significant other gets some very disturbing news from the doctor (i.e. […]

Hello? Is this thing on?

I know, I know…I haven’t posted in MONTHS!  Lots of updates, so let’s get started : ) First off, I’m finally in a relationship with someone that lives in the same area code as me and thus. doesn’t require hopping on a plane to see each other!  Woo hoo!  Yeah, you laugh but it’s been […]

“LOVE” is a cotton candy high

Ah, love…the butterflies in your stomach, waiting for the phone to ring, the anticipation of seeing each other again, etc. “The Honeymoon Phase”, as they call it, can last weeks, months, or rarely (VERY rarely), years.  Sadly, the older I get, the more cynical I become.  I’ve been knee-deep in BS more times than I […]

A poem I wrote in January, 2010…a few months after a horrible breakup and what remains one of my greatest heartaches to date… I met a man some time ago… he touched my soul, he made me whole. Although we wanted different things, each day we laughed; he gave me wings. The conversations that we […]

School’s (almost) back in session!
