She possesses a memory like an elephant. The heart of a lioness. Her mind, her playground. Her body moving with the precision of a panther. Her loving spirit felt in her touch, seen in her eyes–glowing, dancing when at peace with those around her. Each atom of her being bent, distorted, frayed as she watchedContinue reading “Death of a Queen”
Of late I read more Instagram and Facebook post than in the past. What’s captured my attention the most are the post men create; writing about women they meet that state they haven’t had sex in months. Other men chime in and remark that those are whores and the woman is a liar. Men forgetContinue reading “Why men generalize this woman, I will never understand.”
The moment we had an opportunity to talk without the boys present, we bonded. We became best friends; taking a lot of gossip chatter in stride–everyone around us, jealous; reasons unknown to us, nor did we care. She was my sister from another mother. Life happened, we would spend time together, then years apart. AlwaysContinue reading “My Best Friend”
I would rather die So I die Die to Live Appeared that I love You more than I love myself; just a fraction. Tolerance Patience Faith—Then I saw Satan’s son. Take your rightful place in the Universe. Exhaling long/hard. Heart pounds though my chest. Breathe.
Listening to the rain fall over Brooklyn. Day fading to night. The coolness of the day fills the room from the open kitchen window. Monica’s voice on the CD player keeping the apartment from silence. The scent of Heulwen’s Embrace slowly creeps out of the room and down the hall as I fill the blackContinue reading “Remembering You”
I do not want to have sex for the sake of having sex. I want to have sex to fill my emotional, my mental, my physical need. The other sex will not scratch the itch that begins with the kiss. The kiss that causes my heart to thump once hard, stop, and begin again, new.
Headed to find a pair of shoes for a wedding on Thursday. Exit the highway , enters into my view the Statue of Liberty, the East River, Manhattan on my right. It occurs me, I live in New York.
Looking into Lower Manhattan as the sun set this evening.

I love you. I want to keep loving you. I leave you now, so I keep loving you. When our eyes meet again–I leave you now, so I love you then.
The next time you tell me that, I really need to be feeling your breath against my skin.
Ever see Satan’s soul? Go to the mirror.
I have thought more of you this day than in all the days we have known each other. I wish we had more time. The irony of it all. Had you not let me go–two years seven months later; you are leaving me. I never told you. My favorite style. Watching you take your motorcycleContinue reading “For Frazier”
I glided along the pier shooting the sunset. The sound of the tide underneath me. The wind blowing my hair against my face causing my locks to blow across my lens. I stopped to drop my camera bags and get another shot. “Perfect,” I whisper as I raise my head away from my viewer toContinue reading “Coney Island”

My super power. People would feel and see the human experience they are creating, providing, or denying another human being before they move in forward motion.
I got a in box from my sister last week. The reaction of my action. She called me a “drama queen”. From that moment to this one I search for the drama queen in me. I do react to hurt rather loud. Probably because I take so long to react. It has taken me 48Continue reading “My in box”

We were pulling up to the ATM when he responded, “Well since we are no longer competing with each other.” My mouth agape as I processed the words. “Now that we aren’t competing…” I said, “Competing, Michael, competing!” “What were we competing against?” “Which one of us suck’s dick better?” “This is what’s been wrong with ourContinue reading “Now that we aren’t competing…”
There we were. Sitting in that damn hospital all day, everyday. Waiting. Waiting for Mommy to wake up. Waiting. Waiting. My niece felt it would be a good time to ask me questions about her mom. I sat there asking myself why this child needed someone else to confirm her relationship or the lack thereContinue reading “Loyalty”
Know what you need to know about me. I have lied. I have been lied on–learned early that lies hurt. I have stolen; not because I had to but because I wanted to know I would not be caught. Did it twice to make sure. Took it back–put it back. I have cheated. I haveContinue reading “I have lied, cheated, stole, and killed”
“I can tell that I missed a good relationship in you.” He said. “Why do you say that?” I responded. “Because I can feel a dose of tenderness in your voice.” He said, “Come here, let me give you a dose of how I feel about you.” His laughter followed. “Shut up, you are messingContinue reading “A moment with Frazier”

Is it just me? When I drink wine, the glass needs to remain clean. When I drink wine the glass needs to remain half empty.
“Do you touch yourself?” He asked. “No.” “It only leaves me wanting more.” She responded. “Come here, and play with yourself while I watch.” He said. “Why?” She asked. “So I know how.” He responded. ~~~ He leaves me feeling his soul
When you see me working. Do not say, “Do you want some help?” Either step in and help without permission or remain silent and out of the way.

It is 3:11 a.m. The noise over my head . If they are not having sex the noise must stop. I am going to slide a note in there door. I pause now to take ink to paper.
“If I die before you do, are you coming to my funeral?” “Why would I do that?” A look of hurt and confusion came over his face. “To pay your respect.” He said. “To pay my respect?” “Respect.” “Hmmm.” “Your actions towards me have not been with respect.” “No, I would not come toContinue reading “Respect”
relationships. From the perspective of being a mother. My children are adults. I do not have the energy to be mommy to when I was not the best mommy to my children. Besides, you see the word mantic in romantic, yes.

We got on the elevator at the Trump Plaza Hotel headed to our room. A singing group got on the elevator with us. One of them looked me up and down, then down and up.

Someone said to me today, “I wish someone would give to me the way I give to others.” I responded, “It does not work that way.” “As long as you are giving because you expect something in return, you are not giving from your heart but from selfishness.” I was having an MRI done. WhenContinue reading “Selfishness versus…”

Jayne slid into driver seat of her 2015 white Lincoln MKZ, plugged her iPhone 6s Plus into the USB, selected R.H.R.’s CD from her play list, added her destination to her GPS, put on her seat belt, took the ponytail holder out of her hair; checked the time on her two carat diamond studded Bolova, started the vehicle, openedContinue reading “Homeless living, Oahu Hawaii”

I walked into the meeting, paused for a moment scanning the room to locate an empty seat. A voice said, “Hey you.” I felt his tone; glanced down in front of me; saw the look in his eyes.
