Yesterday

We were
happy once.

It didn’t
last long

but I know
it was real.

Yes It Is

Oh, I hate her.
I admit it.
And I hate myself
for wasting time on it.

Some things are real.
Other things are lies.
Who does the telling
and where it all leads
is the reason I wake
up every morning.

It’s all I ever seem
to have time for
anymore.

Predisposed

It’s not me,
it’s you.

I know that.

But I’m a woman,
and molecularly
predisposed
to take the blame.

I’m too much.
Not enough.

Bold.
Undeterred.
Fully in possession
of all the answers
I need and lacking
even a single
question for you.

I’m the
biggest mistake
you’ll never make.

I am not
the reason
that this
doesn’t work.

Not dumb
or needy
enough.

You’re looking
in the wrong
direction and
you’re missing
the only view
worth seeing.

This is not
my fault but
the responsibility
will always be mine.

Because I’m a woman
and molecularly
predisposed
to take the blame.

Of course it’s not me.
It’s not me every time.

Happy Anniversary

Just yesterday
and forever.

That’s every
moment
with you.

There were a bunch of years sprinkled throughout where I dreaded this day and did everything I could to ignore it, but this year, I celebrate you completely. It’s good to know you. Always.
