Sometimes I tell stories. Most of the time I rattle my soul until I break and my heart spills out onto the page.

I tell stories not because I want to find God, but because He's already found me.
I don't think I'll ever really understand.

today is the day when i adorn myself / with a red rose pinned to my sweater / so brilliant against the white and black of my dress / today is the day when the communion plates are stacked / so neatly behind me / and i know that i will finally take from them / instead of just passing it along to the usher / today is the day when my peers and i stand before our congregation / and take our vows / a solemn ritual / it’s my first time saying “i do” / i do i do i do i do i do / today is the day when five vows bind me / today is the day when i say i am no longer my own / today is the day when i give myself up
