Early morning meeting

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.  I felt one of the four brick walls surrounding my heart crash to the ground…the smoke made my weak.  

I smiled. 

He moved his briefcase from the seat next to him motioning for me to sit next to him.  

I exhaled as I sat back; relaxing into this feeling of complete ease.  

He put his arm around me drawing me closer to him.  Almost whispering in my ear, “I love your hair.”

The chemistry strong undeniable–the ease of the conversation that followed.

Our exchange of glances; eyes sparkling; getting lost in his grand piano smile.

Exchanges of calls and texts. Such laughter sharing life moments.

Time passed.

I woke one morning remembering those that I have been forced to love from a long distance.

The brick wall suddenly built back now surrounded with a moat.

I have lied, cheated, stole, and killed

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 have been cheated on.  I learned the pain I inflicted was cruel.

I committed murder too.  Yes I did.  It was inconvenient to my life otherwise.

Know what you need to know about me.

I tried to bust Hell wide open, more than once.  When I walked into a church the walls bled.

You are going to hear many things about me.  A lot of it is true. 

You want to know me, ask me.
