dove.coteOne day I will not see you as beautiful. It is not now, it is not today. But one day you will be a face, divorced from all the photos I couldn’t bear to burn. You will be stood across the room, and I will meet your gaze with all the indifference of a stranger. My heart will not lurch, will not trip on the last words we shared, “take care, always remember-” It is not now, it is not today. You will laugh, smile, do that thing with the corners of your eyes, you will gesture like so, you will click your tongue and shake your head, you will spill your drink on an unsuspecting passerby, and I will hardly notice. You will approach me like the first time I met you – interrupting perfectly good conversation with a voice higher, sharper, louder than it ought to be, always squeezing yourself into places you don’t belong. It was the same with your words, burgeoning between my own, lingering in the spaces between silence and sound. I will retort, be as sharp as the day

Ack!!Oh, dear! So much going on, I'm a little bit wobbly. First off (and I'm sure you're just dying to know): I did the open mic in Yorkshire. People were ultra-kind to me, true of every interaction I had in England. I was well received, and when the open mic wrapped up, a couple of folks made a point of seeking me out to say nice things. I did what I always do -- I left as quickly as I could because I'm terribly shy. Really too bad, especially since one guy did a brilliant version of my favorite song, "Beeswing" (surprise, surprise!), called "Cheese Strings." I should have at least talked to him, and regret that.

Hello June - (Mental) Health UpdatesMay was Mental Health Awareness Month and while in my personal life not many people seem to care about that (outside my therapy group); here on DA many have shown me that they do care during Mental Health Awareness Month over at GuidingLightProject.

Love and DoomLúthien paused once to look back. Behind her was the forest and lands she had grown up in, the strong trees and the caves that had sheltered her and never fallen to the enemy.

Trinity I find myself by circumstance at a loss. Bereft of words plentiful and meaningful enough to utter the praises that all of you so rightly deserve. I have but one opportunity to express just how much you have come to mean to me and why. The clock faces me, oblivious to my frustration while every tick serves to repeat the same reminder. You are running out of time, it says. You had best hurry if you want to meet this deadline.
My HeartShe never liked looking at her heart. It was a small, unshaped crystal with edges, where pieces had broken off ages ago. Time had made them blunt. There was no glow, no rainbow colours, only dull red, looking sallow on the outsides.

ExitWhen the dancer lurched towards me in uneven steps, the ringing of bells dangling from her threadbare red costume reverberated across the room. I froze, in crouching position, not knowing if to run, and if to run, where to. In desperation I searched for the exit, but her wet, dark eyes seized me, and that was all I could see. Her sweat-ruined makeup. Her mouth. Opening and closing, like a dehydrating fish. I stood up in a flash and just as sudden, I heard, the explosion of a thousand bells, and a scream that was not mine.
