cheated

She often thought she had been cheated out of her childhood and early teen years. There were no photos of her parents and brother proudly flanking her at high school graduation. The family sedan never received its first fender bender from her first driving attempt.

wishful

I couldn’t help but stare at Ashley with a look of dumbfounded pity. In what was definitely a display of naïveté and wishful thinking, she had allowed two, strange men to park her car.

“Ashley, how long has it been since they said they would park your car?”

She tilts her head and scrunches her brow, trying to equate drunk time with realtime. “Well, I had a shot with Becca, talked with John, and now I’m here talking with you. Oh and this,” she raises an orange concoction, “is my second drink, a ‘Sex on the Beach.’ Funny name right?”

It takes a lot of restraint to not slap my forehead in exasperation. “How long, Ash?” I ask.

“Um. I guess 15 minutes.”

“Oh shit,” I mutter under my breath. We would be lucky if we even caught a glimpse of her car speeding out of the lot into the night. Luckier still would be if our parents didn’t kill us for going to Cabo for Spring Break.

oven

It was time she conquered her fears; it was time she baked a cake. A quizzical glance and a slight electrical buzz later, the oven was preheated to 400.

rattle

She opened the box and grasped the wooden rattle her grandfather had made for her mother. Marveling at the intricate pattern – a green paisley print interspersed with yellow stars – she couldn’t help but be excited at the thought of her little bundle of joy entering the world.

suspenseful

Very sneaky. hard to find. Can’t find them. serious.

incense

Incense is a word that explains a scent of something and it has a unique smell. A lot of time incense are essential oils. I have smelled incents in church. The only scent I know is Frankincense

miss

I miss the firsts and the frequencies at which they occurred. The first time you asked to hold my hand. To share a kiss. To be your girlfriend. But, I love the familiarity and the comfort we have with one another. I love us.

flexible

I carry these burdens,
strapped to my back,
in old trunks,
fastened together by
brass buckles and
and travel stickers,
Cincinnati, Austin,
and Lafayette.

Sturdy like an oak tree,
flexible like a branch and its
leaves billowing in the wind.
I’d like to think I’m these things as I
climb up my 24th flight of stairs.

But in the end, I’m just a lone
leaf in the wind. Aimless and
lacking direction.

imagined

He never imagined that it would be like this.

Adrenaline constantly coursing through his veins, sirens blaring off in the distance.

A pretty smile next to him as stacks of cash spilled over the edges of burlap bags.

“Give me a kiss, baby.”

hardly

I was hardly coherent as strings and jumbles of words poured out of my mouth.

In the blur of events that transpired, all I can remember is the look on your face when you said “I love you,” and the big goofy smile that crossed my face when you said it.

aunt

I was not prepared to be an aunt; I was not even prepared for kindergarten.

How could my brother do this to me?

I’m the cute one, not this weird, crying, tiny human.

frown

Instead of a resting bitch face, I have a perpetual frown.

“I’m NOT sad,” I exclaim. “My face just looks like that!”

How ironic that my name means “smile.”

sweep

It’s so crazy to me how easily you managed to sweep me off my feet. I always thought my two left feet anchored me to the floor, made me unmovable. But, here you are: sweeping me off my feet, teaching me what it means to not only love yourself, but to love another person.

tailgate

When we were young,
autumns were all about the leaves changing colors,
new semesters beginning,
tailgating and drinking pilsners
during college football season.

So many secrets were shared
under warm blankets, next to
campfires, with marshmallows melting
and charring off the tips of sticks.

Now, it’s all of those things, but
with the added warmth of knowing
that you’ll be there through
all of the seasons.

fought

We fought about everything. We even fought about the shoes that he bought me. I wanted to wear them but he thought they were not right for where we were going. Fighting. All the time. It was a never ending process.

square

To find herself here, at this time was unacceptable. She’s a square, not one for the cool crowd. Why had she come. As Delaney decided to leave, resigned to the fact that she wasn’t his type, Mr. Wonderful appeared before her. He seemed relieved to see her.

measured

Chelsea lay in a supine position, listening to what was being told to her. Not really believing what she’d just heard, she weighed her options. In a measured response she said, “John, I believe when should end this now. I don’t believe anyone needs to die over an affair.”

begin

i like to begin my morning with coffee and a nice walk. it clears my head and gets me ready for the day. my days are always so busy and that moment just walking with my coffee and the crisp air or warm sun, that’s my moment, that’s me time.

gum

The gum i am chewing is delicious and it taste like the sun of the morning summer day with the dew in the sky falling on my face as i run thru the woods of nottingham awaiting the gnome that will teach me the way to tie shoes in a knot that only a man of great strength could undue.

Misplaced. Displaced. Of Interest.

hinge

The boy could only see so much through the hinge of the door. He could see, in the dim light, two figures in the dark, figures he knew in daylight but now through that tiny crack they look not the same. Melded together, twisted – twisted by the bedsheets that freshly came from the laundry, through that hinge of the door they could’ve been practicing how to plough a field.

below

Nobody really knows what’s down below. Some say it’s a fiery pit of hot burning lava governed by a two horned creature that’s uglier than your neighbor’s squealing baby. Some say it’s nothing but earth, worms, and worms eating dead bodies. I would probably never know what’s down below until someone buries me alive and I (if fortunate enough) live to tell the tale.

compassion

It works like magic. Especially in high school, on the cruddiest days, a random smile or ‘hello’ from a stranger can do wonders to my mindset and mood. If I’m walking like a zombie, a compassionate look or a listening ear is what gets me through the day. People claim to not have it, but everyone has a compassionate bone, even if it’s just a single tarsal.

missed

I miss so many people back home. Oregon and Washington are my first true loves and where I first fell in love.

Trees. Ocean. camping friends music pizza water fountains

The pacific northwest has no equal anywhwere else in the country.

I am homesick!!! Take me HOME!

succeed

That’s all I want. I mean, that’s all I wanted to do. And then I did. And now, as I sit alone in my big apartment and look at all the things I just HAD to have and all the things I worked so hard to get and I think about the job that I’ve broke my back for, I think: Is this really what it means to succeed? I’m surrounded, but alone. I’ve got the money, but it doesn’t buy what I wish it would. I’ve got it all, but I’ve got nothing.

repeat

I just told you what the problem was.

I don’t understand why this is such a big issue.

The fact that you don’t is the problem.

Why?

You are my problem.

Can you be my problem too?

painted

“Painted,” I looked painted, he said. As he threw his keys on the table, he couldn’t resist one last opportunity to scar my sole.

shape

I lost it in front of all of my friends. My life changed and I was now witnessing the shape of things to come. The future didn’t look bright. There,in front of everyone was the man who dumped me with the woman he loved.
