Of course You know Another night No sleep Sharing bar-close kisses with strangers Post-lust-call Drug-driven hang-outs Snorting powders until daylight Swore, before you came along it was the last time. Swear, I was fine. Found what I’d wanted. Somehow made it mine. Too bad it takes two or more for our relationship, And it only […]

Companionship. At the end of the day, that’s all I want. Someone to take trips with. Someone to celebrate promotions and professional milesones with. Someone to curl up with when the sun rests it’s eyes for the night. Someone to kiss when the times allows, and someone that’s okay with a kiss when it doesn’t. […]

Is it a cop-out to never love again? To deny any and all the possibilities of it? Regularly battle with the idea that this is for the best: to remain vacant and hollow in interactions with others in order to protect what’s left of my particularly fragile heart. Other times I know that those connections […]

Almost went to that island-you know-the one from that time-you know. It was your 21st birthday. Both of us knew what a meaningful birthday our peers deemed it to be. You were understandably excited about earning the aged ability of entering any adult venue and sipping any alcoholic beverage you wanted. Everyone should be stoked […]

How fucking selfish can one person be? Testing all the theories and so far none of the hypothesized answers are the final one. Accurate as your calculations may be, it doesn’t matter if you’re mixing things that are dangerously non-cohesive. Dating to be loved. Dating to be wanted. Dating for all the wrong reasons, right?

(10/28/16) Getting used to me The side that decisively you don’t often see Keep it under lock and key Until I can show it a little more comfortably       (10/29/16) Challenge you to write daily Put some words on a page Put the phone down Get back in touch, Beyond the touch screen […]

Learning the specials of the hipster, local dive-bar so well I could repeat them to you. Not that I ever order them unless they’re cheaper than my regular Whiskey Sour. Still frugal as fuck. Always broke as shit. Probably because I feed off seedy little joints like this one for inspiration, and they won’t let […]

Still trying to get away from you Been trying hard to escape from thoughts of you All marked in pen and sharpie Knowing I can’t just erase you Leaving you alone for the good of us There’s no point in chasing you Still trying to come to simple terms that one day, The day I […]

We’ve embraced each other: materialism and I. Pseudo-social success with ample nod from the local in-crowd. No hassle and free VIP strip-club access around the city. After-parties high up in lofts, somehow higher than we get. Always looking better than we feel. The surface is tailored, matching and adorned with shiny accoutrements. Layers deeper, things […]

Little more than a week and he’ll be two. Terrible two’s. Tumbling toddler sure to make any and all messes in his path, leaving even more for you to clean up after. Few months ago, I was there with you. Sweeping up thrown food from his high-chair. Chasing after him when he got too close […]
