Thinking…

Untitled 7.4.14


As I waited for sleep
I thought
I think
I forgot how to love
What is that?
I’m not sure…
I can’t imagine that tenderness
That intimacy
With a man
Him next to me
Holding me
Why would he do that?
He wouldn’t
He won’t
I don’t know who He is…
All I do is pretend
That each one could be the one
And they’re not
I always know it from the start…

Stuck


I always get stuck sitting in front of a restless traveler. They fidget, and fuss, turn, and are generally jumpy, making me agitated and annoyed. And then, there are the stories.I always get stuck listening to their stories. Stories that may or may not make sense to me but I don’t really care to hear them either way. Naming people I don’t know, informing me of things I’d prefer to remain ignorant about. My mind is filled with enough clutter and information. Why give me more to process, and digest? I’m automatically polite, thankfully, so that I can respond appropriately – because I do feel compelled to respond. If I am the only stranger in the world who will hear your woes, that is the least I can do.
I always get stuck waiting. Waiting on someone, waiting for things to happen, for decisions to be made, for realizations to occur.What a sordid affair…

Big O


The big O is no more


It won’t come – no pun intended


Maybe, for that you work harder, really work


Really try, because its tangible, it’s something you can feel, hear


Something you believe in – unlike feelings


My feelings to be exact


But it won’t work…


No matter your effort, because a little piece of me has died


The part that comes with acceptance


That accepts the inevitable knowledge of die-hard habits


And stubborn ways


The acceptance that nothing changes


But this will


My desire dwindles


Like sunlight, as fall beckons winter


My desire is nonexistent and I am not alarmed or ashamed


Worried or aggrieved…

In The Lonely Hour and other random sh#t

I’m grown. So tell me why I can’t cuss without substituting key vowels with other symbols? I’m not sure…Perhaps a part of me thinks cursing is vulgar, crass and sort of unnecessary unless of course it is necessary. In those necessary instances, curse up a proverbial storm and then some.

I just copped (does anyone say that anymore? “copped”? Who says that? I guess I do. I’m pretty old and not as up to date on the new slang as I need to be) In The Lonely Hour by Sam Smith. Can I just say that I like every song? Every single one! The last time I liked every song was when Bon Iver dropped “Bon Iver” and that was at least 3 years ago. Damn – time flies. I listen to that album like it was released last week lol. I never get tired of it. So, Mr. Sam Smith…I really like his album. The words, the music, everything is just great. Just what I like. I can’t believe it took me so long to pay attention to him. I follow Maxwell on Instagram and he was always posting about this guy. I was just too lazy to pay attention and then one fateful, early morning last week, “Stay With Me“, came on VH1 soul. I was up because I can never sleep and I was quite taken with the song. I’m a sucka for pop and R&B and I didn’t even realize his album was coming out this week. Somehow I was signed on to the iTunes store on Tuesday by purposeful accident and Sam (yes, we’re on a first name basis) was right there looking artistically thoughtful (at least I think so…) on the album cover. I didn’t hesitate to download it. I mean, I like to support artists. I like to be paid for the work I do, and I’m sure they do as well. So yeah, the bottom line is that I’m in deep lust with Sam and I’m sure it’ll turn into another “L” word in no time.

I’m supposed to be taking a nap right now but I’m not. I’m blogging which I haven’t done in ages. I am just too preoccupied to sit down and type as I am now. I’ll write notes in my phone in a heartbeat, but somehow it never translates to a blog post anymore. Shame, shame on me. So, I’m supposed to be napping because I need to be rejuvenated for an awesome Friday night filled with laughter, and drinks, and delish food. Wherever there is food and laughter, I want to be there. Everyone proclaims to be a fat person in a skinny or not-fat body and I guess this is supposed to be a good thing. I mean…it’s rather cliché to me. I eat whatever I want, when I want. I try to be more mindful (with age comes much needed wisdom) about my food choices but seriously…I eat what I want. If I want Buffalo wings 5 days a week (I always want Buffalo wings 7 days a week) then I try not to indulge but sometimes I say eff it. Eat Buffalo wings girl, until your heart is content. I mean, my heart is so often not content, why should I deprive myself of those things that are sure to bring instantaneous, lasting (3 hrs at least!) pleasure? Anyway, enough about food. I’m salivating just thinking about it. I’m off to listen to Sam croon to me. No distractions…

Up. Watching Luther. Episode 1, Season 3. Spent 52 min 19 seconds admiring Idris. Repeating his lines, doing a very good job at doing a bad English accent lol. 5 min and 16 seconds to go and I pause it. I can’t go on. Something bad is gonna happen and I cannot face it alone. No! Not by myself. Not at 3 in the morning. Not so close to bedtime. I need wine. And someone else beside me. So I can bury my face in their shoulder and peek out at 20 second intervals. Yeah…that’s what I need.

Untitled 8.14


You were in my dreams again last night and I just want to know “Why?!?!?”


Sometimes, I feel like I’m almost over the hump and I’m making it but then I go back.


Sometimes, it starts with a dream, many times a memory, a thought of concern for you.


This, I would not wish on my worst enemy.


It’s not so much a confusion as it is a longing…a gnawing and a chipping away at the shaky, half-assed resolve I think I’ve built up.


The mantra in my head, “Leave him alone” is on mute, and I can only envision the words when I close my eyes.


I can’t even say them aloud. I’m not sure I actually believe them.


They sound weak and lame but I know what I have to do; why can’t I do it?


I wonder about this hold you have on me.


It should be enough that you shunned me, that you don’t love me…


Perhaps the grip that stupidity has around my neck has choked all the good sense out of me, leaving that last lethal drop of hope in my heart…

Jealousy

you wear your jealousy like a coat of armor

using it to protect your heart

when you embrace me

your scattered thoughts attack you

and you wonder

where I’ve been

with who

and how long

and in your kiss

I can taste your anxiety

it’s bitter, and coppery, and overflowing

but you, and your manly pride

will never admit to it

the truth as you know it and I know it

the truth as it poisons us and this relationship

leaving you gaunt and thin

and me

shamefaced and stuttering

although I have done nothing wrong
