Crumbs

I’m a little bit messy
In life and in love
Memories splatter
Over walls and stale cloths
Across my shirt
Down my chin
A touch here and there
Fragrant reminders
Of a life I missed
Stick to my lips
Crumbs, ravaged
Forgotten details I pick up
Again and again

You Are Not Gossamer

“My confidence is gossamer.”

“Gossamer?”

“Gossamer.”

“That guy was pretty confident I guess.”

“That guy?”

“Yeah, the heart guy. The big monster one. Like an olden days Kool-Aid man.”

“I don’t think … Gossamer is a word. It’s not a person or monster or whatever you’re talking about.”

“No offense, I know my Bugs Bunny. Maybe you mean another word?”

“Maybe you have the name wrong. My word is Gossamer.”

“Google it then. Let’s see who’s right.”

*furious typing*

“Gossamer, thin, delicate, insubstantial.”

“And, right there, Gossamer. Big red heart dude.”

“Huh. Ironic.”

“Yeah, also, have you met yourself? Your confidence is not “gossamer”. You’re not a wilting flower or silk blowing in the wind.”

RDP: Gossamer

2019 and Decade Round Up

Happy holidays and happy new year! I hope it’s been wonderful for everyone and if it hasn’t I hope you know it will get better. This year was difficult for me. I had a lot of personal setbacks, wrote less and felt the lowest I’d felt in some time. All things pass though and I’m ending this year on a much better note.

Since it’s the end of the year and the end of a decade I’m going to share the top 5 posts from 2019 and the top 3 since I started this blog.

Top 5 of 2019
The Wild Things
No Business for Friends
Fire in the Night
Chicken Little
That’s What She Said
(solid choices readers)

Top 3 of the decade (kind of, this blog has only been around for less than half of it)
Jailbait
Dead Leg
Biblical

That’s our round up dear readers. Thank you so much for reading, commenting and staying with me on this journey.
