You are a man, a man who I trust and respect with ever fiber of myself and who commands the the same from everyone else. You bring out the best in me, showing how I can improve, how I can be stronger, how I can be better. Y...

    I am a woman, Not a figurine that can be stood on a shelf Not a piece of decoration Not a hood ornament, Not a piece of arm candy A woman I don’t dress for anyone but myself. If I wear a belly shirt, It’s not because I am a sl*t. I want to show off my waist. If I wear a long skirt,...

    One or three of the stupid ones jump at me and try to knock me out of the sunlight. I dodge and two actually collide with each other in a ray of sunlight.

The first is that before they turned, they used to be normal, with jobs and homes and pets and families. Then some Vampyte bites them and they’re turned into a mons...

    I can't say you're the love of my life, but I could be happy with you. To lie on the pillow, watch you breathing, let you leave when it's time to go. I won't stop you, Won't show you I'm sorry when you leave, Because as long as I don't love you, you'll...

    An end table that once graced our hallway, Is leaning by the back door, Pots I learned to cook in, Tucked away in her cupboards. The dinner table where we said grace, Where I did my homework Is buried under papers by the kitchen. My desk I sat at through high school, Is in her daughter’s r...

    Through most of my childhood, Mom used to take me onto the movie set where she worked. Sometimes, I visited in her trailer filled with flowers and chocolates for Friends or Herman’s Head, but other times, if I was good, I got to sit in the audience. There, I would sit quietly and watch wide-eyed a...
