Joy in the Midst of Darkness (A reflection)

May 28, 2014 § Leave a comment

Maybe depression is a time of healing for me. Certain parts of me shut down or go away to heal and leave me to survive on the basics.

I experienced joy once in the last two weeks. I was looking at my son through a camera lens clicking every move he made while playing baseball and it hit me in my gut. Joy never comes quietly. My son was excited, encouraging others – he was definitely in a moment of Bliss.

I laughed and cried at the same time. For me it is a sensation so rare that I almost react impulsively, or as if, I have a tick. I always look around for any watchers – maybe someone caught that moment and I could smile with them.

I visited that moment a million times since it occurred. Not recalling the Joy but recalling his moment of bliss.


Bliss – More Please! XO

Just Once

It’s too easy to pass judgement on people you don’t even know.
This was written with my sisters in mind – who are all facing their own challenges.
Love will see us through anything.

Improve the moment

Improve the moment

No matter what happens, you will be alright.

She stood away of everyone else
holding down her wings of rusty knives
filled with fear and sadness
tears escaped from her eyes
and that would be the last day
she was allowed anything authentic to say

She did not know it yet
but the day would come
she would raise up her wings
throw her head back
and with bold proclamation
stomp blatantly on the floor with one foot

Drunk in Love, plus some

I love me some J&B (I’d buy a bottle)! Both artists have grown, evolved on and off screen along with mp3 files.

Because I fall somewhere in between both their ages, I can relate to the possible adversity they have been faced with along the way.

Remember, mo’ money – mo’ problems. Relationships take work not plastic.

It makes me laugh when I read or hear criticizers of the fortunate couple. Unless we are one of B’s seventeen Grammy awards, we are not living with the couple day in and day out. It is irresponsible to pass judgment on anyone other than ourselves and that even should not be practiced often.

This post could be longer but I would much rather watch Beyonce & Jay Z while co-creating another entertaining performance together.

Death of Our Affair pt. 1

Girlfriend, boyfriend
husband or wife;
labels only you
brought to my life.

The touch of your skin
the glance of your eyes
Schedules we adjusted
for one last goodbye.

Comfortable silence
resting lips
precious moments
locked fingertips

Do you feel at all sad
reading this line
with eyes that will never
look into mine?
