“Kids! Get down here for breakfast! I’ve called you five times already!” Aji shouted up to them.
Footsteps rushing downstairs came to Aji’s ears, and a few seconds later, Willow, Asha, Cal and Jax appeared. The four lined up in a line. Cal(4) at the end, Asha(8), next to him, then Willow(14), after her, and last, Jax(15).
Aji smiled at them all. “Very good. Now pick your plates and pancakes.”
I remember the smell of the cookies as they baked in the oven, not knowing where this would all land me years down the road.
Who would’ve thought this is where it would be.
Messy, at times, but a safety net.
Chaotic, and yet strikingly beautiful at first glance.
I only ever saw the beauty in the chaos. I only ever wished for solace for you in all of your madness.
The definition of insanity as...
The music blared over the speakers. Laughing, talking and dancing.
I sat at a table, a cup of punch in my hand. Emily swirled past me, her hands in Mason’s.
I thought she would have realized I’d come, and that I’d come because she asked me to. But I guess that was before Mason moved in to town. Almost wish he hadn’t.
I take a long drink, draining the whole cup. I set it down on the table, leanin...
In a way, this was a happy ending for both of us him getting married to his beautiful boyfriend and me dead on the floor.

I hope you’re happy.
I hope you found what
you were looking for.
Whatever it was that
made you walk out
I wonder what it would’ve been like,
to learn from you - or rather learn from what you should’ve been. All those things a father should teach his boy. To throw a football, to stand up for himself and others. To shave - when t...
In the end twas what we had,
In the beginning it was what we needed.
the middle there was us,
In the end twas what would happen,
In the beginning it was what we wanted.
the middle there was everyone else
In the after there was an angry silence,
In this silence there was time.
The middle there was him.
In a way, this is a happy ending for the both of us....
Don’t say my name
Trace my curves
Don’t say me
When I can hear on your lips
Don’t wish me Goodnight
Kiss me good morn’
Don’t look in my eyes
Hold me close
Rest your head
Heart to heart
My mind distressed
Close your eyes
Feel my skin
Don’t tell me where I end
And she begins
Break my heart
While she holds plenty
Tell me what am I
If she’s everything l...
“This is nice. The two of us having dinner like old times.” She looked down the length of the unreasonably large dining table Sat directly across from her was a beautiful man in an emerald suit.
“Do you remember when you proposed? You weren’t nervous at all.” She chuckled, slicing through her steak. “And I had absolutely no idea! We were supposed to be seeing a movie downtown that night but I rol...
Sky is getting red
Body’s getting cold
Heart is skipping beats
Mind stars to lose itself
I don’t know what this is
Could be death or it could be I realized the last time you left
Was in fact the LAST time
You showed me how to love myself
Even when I was down you’d be the one to pick me up
I knew you were indeed my dream girl but I never knew how impactful a dream could be
Not until you chose...
“Are you sure you want to go through with this?”
Claudia laughed. It was bitter and terrible, almost a cry.
“What happened to me not having a choice?”
Timothy didn’t say anything for a moment, and that only left her fidgeting with the necklace on the dresser before she decided to unclasp it and drape it around her neck. It gave her a moment to think, and in that moment, she had an epiphany of s...
