Weary of Love

You have taken me prisoner to your wishes, I no longer want any love from you. Your love tightens the noose around my freedom and catches itself on my breath. It muffles my voice and curls my skin into harrowing pits in my stomach It follows me, like a demon that forces itself into everything... Continue Reading →

Veiled Worlds Apart

I am an optimist most days; The world is made of infinite possibilities where everything works out eventually, Where no matter how much my heart hurts today, I may actually be able to laugh tomorrow. But some days, the world presses in harder. Some days the veil wears thin. Sometimes the world seems keen to... Continue Reading →

Dear future husband,

It took me a while to realize you'd be human, like me. Not perfect, just like me. And probably having loads of things you were working on, like me. But no matter how long it took for this realization to finally dawn, I'm glad it happened. Because when it did, it helped me to bring... Continue Reading →

Fallen Hearts

Falling from heaven, she saw the heart wrench out of her very being. Never before had she felt so lost and numb at the same time. Never before had a heart broken with such pain, so as to turn all things awful. Never before had words failed her. What kind of pain is it, that... Continue Reading →

Death by Obligation

Why do you make me love you so That the words "supposed to" trigger anger rather than love, That filial piety has extended in meaning to exclude anything else that would dare make me happy. To love me for myself has lost all meaning, when you don't really know me anymore, Only the parts I've... Continue Reading →

Faithless Lovers

How quick I am my Love, to leave your wounded side. The faithlessness with which I forsake your love, The depravity with which I abandon your mercy, How is it that this heart could imagine such a wound as it forces on your most tender heart? How is it that you so easily forgive this... Continue Reading →

Sundays are for Being Loved

The other Sunday, I was teaching class and this idea just popped into my head. We were talking about God and how He enters into our time, how He enters our lifespans in the Sacraments; our years in the Seasons of the Church and the Liturgical Cycles; our days in the feasts of the Church...

The Oddity

I can give you a thousand reasons not to choose me. I jump ship when I sense things are heading downhill; I am hardly the long legged girl you watch in the corner of the cafe, her dress floating in her aura, her long hair carrying the wind. I'm tiny, to put it politely, and... Continue Reading →

Dark Victories

That is why my love, we don’t wallow in our misery This is why we don’t let the darkness consume us whole. We choose instead to tattoo ourselves to remind us of the courage hidden deep within our skin, Ready to seep out when necessary like a superpower on demand. We use words to steer...
