“You can be a drunk. You can be a survivor of abuse. You can be an ex-con. You can be a homeless person. You can lose all your money or your job or a husband or a wife, or the worst thing imaginable, a child. You can lose your marbles. You can be standing inside your own failure, a small sad stone in your throat, and still you are beautiful, your story is worth hearing, because you--you rare and phenomenal misfit--are the only one in the world who can tell the story the way that only you can.”

~Lidia Yuknavitch, The Misfit's Manifesto

You tell me I should be thankful,
that you packed up your life and left,
I am grateful,
but not when you treat me like this,

I've had more panic attacks,
more tears, more pain, more sadness,
and all you do is look at me,
with a familiar look of madness,

I don't know how to make you proud,
I don't think any child does,
but you're my dad and I'm your daughter,
yet I feel like we're strangers,

You...

Fall

FREE WRITING

Leaves falling,
Air turning crisp,
The morning fog,
The nightly mist,

​I thought of you last night,
I saw you in a dream,
I wanted to reach out and touch you,
But I didn't want you to leave,

I tossed and turned,
Trying to remember you,
The way you smiled at me,
Like you used to do,

We fell in love in October,
Maybe that's why I love fall,
Because every time it gets to this season,
I feel like...

A Love Letter for You

FREE WRITING

There are so many things I miss,
But the most important is you,
I miss our stupid conversations,
I miss meaning the world to you,

The sun, the moon, the sky, and the stars,
I'd give them all if I could,
You'd have the whole universe,
Because I said you should,

You own my heart,
Have for a while,
I want to be together,
Make you feel worthwhile,

We're two broken people,
Trying to be whole,
Two halves make one, ...
