Three Apologies

5 September, 2015 (19:26) | Women | No comments

“I’m sorry,” the email began and finished. I stared at it. I read it three times. And then I hit send, breathed a sigh of relief and went to bed. I woke up with my stomach in knots the next day, and it only got worse with time. Since then, I keep rewriting that email in […]

Ghost Story

12 July, 2015 (10:17) | Growing Up, Women | No comments

Sweat beads on my forehead, my fingers a gnarled mass of anxiety. I can feel the tenseness in my jaw, neck and body. I twist my shoulders tersely, a shiver running up my spine as I push the wet covers aside and feel the cool night air rush across my damp body. I roll slightly, […]

Certainly, Madame

30 May, 2015 (06:48) | Women | No comments

The first time you broke up with me, it caught me off guard. It didn’t really register at all at first. Not in the moment. You said the words—kind, sweet, logical words that cited equality and fairness—but I wasn’t really listening to your words. I heard you, your words seared into my subconscious, but I […]

The Gravity of the Situation

13 May, 2015 (08:23) | Creativity, Women | 4 comments

I am a comet. I hurtle around and around, my orbit static, the same, over and over, past brilliant stars, beautiful plants, incredible belts of asteroids and nebulae that paint a rainbow so full of every color the human eye can’t perceive them all. And then I start anew, passing brilliant stars, beautiful planets, and the same old […]

Open & Honest – Epilogue

18 July, 2014 (07:30) | Women | No comments

  Concluded from Open and Honest – Part I – Part II – Part III – Part IV Part V – Part VI – Part VII – Part VIII – Part IX – Part X It’s so easy to work in vignettes, moments captured as close to perfectly as possible. Then one moment begins bleeding into another, her presence the one consistent factor. Time loses all meaning, the days pooling into […]

Four Drafts

15 July, 2014 (08:05) | Women | 3 comments

  I. Breakfast the other day was pleasant, and I appreciate that you wanted to meet, but I feel like it was a wasted opportunity to actually talk. When you said you still wanted to get together, I assumed you had things you wanted to say. I had hoped you wanted to explain how you’ve […]

Open & Honest – Part X

4 July, 2014 (18:15) | Women | 1 comment

Continued from Open and Honest – Part I – Part II – Part III – Part IV Part V – Part VI – Part VII – Part VIII – Part IX “I think I’m done,” I say. It’s the first time I’ve said it out loud. It feels good to say it. I just wish I could say it to her. It almost catches me off guard. I have […]

Open & Honest – Part IX

25 June, 2014 (06:45) | Women | No comments

Continued from Open and Honest – Part I – Part II – Part III Part IV – Part V – Part VI – Part VII – Part VIII “I don’t think I’ve ever seen you angry,” she had told me. If she were here now, she would. I’m glad she isn’t here. I’m glad she can’t see this. Tomorrow, or maybe the next day, I’ll have formulated […]

Open & Honest – Part VIII

17 June, 2014 (06:45) | Women | 1 comment

Continued from Open and Honest – Part I – Part II Part III – Part IV – Part V – Part VI – Part VII Five days. I keep telling myself it’ll only be five days. Five days of fun with friends, of visiting with family, of bachelor party and Boston. Despite all the wonderful people and times, every spare moment is spent thinking of […]

Open & Honest – Part VII

13 June, 2014 (06:45) | Women | 1 comment

Continued from Open and Honest – Part I – Part II Part III – Part IV – Part V – Part VI She adorns herself in the blankets, wrapped in comfort. Her breath slips out slow and steady, her chest rising invisibly beneath the comforter. I stand there, goosebumps covering my body, chilled, and I’m torn. I want to dive beneath the covers, […]
