Lonesome Leather

It used to be a symbol of something. It used to adorn my body for everyone to see, though few would realize it’s true significance. Leather bound to another. Every morning I sit at look at it laying there, lonesome and neglected on the dressing table. Now it signifies something lost, something that used to be but no […]

Is Monogamy Really the Way?

I live in a world that has become set on morality, one where monogamy is the standard model for relationships. I should have one partner, one soul mate, one and only one. Why is this the normal accepted standard for us North Americans, and when did it become such? Also, why is it still considered the standard when we […]

DD – Last Night

Dear Diary, I’ve been playing out scenarios in my mind all week. Playing and replaying. Sometimes worst case, sometimes best. Me begging, him ignoring. Him showing up on my doorstep and telling me he loves me, how he can’t live without me. No matter how many times I do it, how many different ways it […]

Curveballs

There are obstacles. There always are of one type or another. Distance. Family. Circumstance. There is always some reason to say no, to decide that the person you long for is not the person who will be yours. Sometimes it is our own fears and insecurities. Again, things we all have. They may be different […]

Simple Rules

The past few weeks have been a time of reflection for me. During this time I attended Playground, which I will write about soon, and have been re-evaluating some of my relationships. Every relationship, whether intimate or not, helps us learn and define what is acceptable to us and what is not. They also help […]
