Leave your dignity intact

Know when it’s time to give up.
Treat yourself like the QUEEN that you are.
There is nothing noble about unrequited love.
You deserve so much more. You’re not a vulture.
Don’t prey on a weak body that’s too tired to love you back.

You are safe

Let my collarbone be your confessional.
Leave your d e m o n s here.
I will cradle them between my shoulder blades.
Let the bed be sweat-stained, fear-stained,
sin-stained, and shaking for the hundred and one
reasons you never had the courage to name.
I will drink the venom of your tragedy and turn it
into spring water in our throats. You are safe.

I have been so disconnected with IG lately. I’m so terribly sorry. I’ve never felt so overwhelmed with my life. From adjusting to a new job just a few months ago, to moving and finding another job while thinking, gosh will this job hunting ever end, I’m too old for this! And then finally finding one along with the prospect of a new love, then evaluating it if it’s really for me, but then deciding I deserve better things so I had to give up the job along with the guy 💔 sigh I know.

I read somewhere that we can have everything! Just not at the same time. It’s been a roller coaster so far! But I believe in timing and in my capabilities.

I’m thankful that I was patient and courageous enough to wait for what I deserve. I’ve finally found the job that I’m happy with.

As for love, well, that will come eventually. I’m not waiting, nor am I looking – what will be 🎶 will be.

Trust me, I will try

Believe me when I say I don’t want to make promises I can’t keep. Every time I think of telling you I want you for your bad days and your good, I flinch back into myself, saying nothing. I am so afraid of finding out I’m not strong enough to hold the both of us.

But trust me when I say I love you.

And that means I will try anyway.

The beast in me

I am more lioness than girl.
I am more snarl than smile.
I am not the silent type purring
sighs into your chest. The way
that I will scream your name
is more roar than moan, as my
nails claw the flesh of your
backbone. I am the insatiable
beast of the night and morn.

Save for the moments between
sunset and darkness, when your
fingertips find the curve of my
waist, and you pull my raging
form tight against our heaving
breaths and heartstrings.

Strength and honor

The first lesson I learned was never to wait for a man’s rescue. History is written by the survivors, and I am surely that.
– Catherine de Medici, from the TV series REIGN

I just came across this series last weekend and was saddened that it was ending. So I’ve started a marathon for Season 1 when I came across one of the lines of Catherine de Medici. She takes no nonsense from anyone, she’s definitely one of my favorites.
