The Bull and the Scorpion

Even if you don’t believe in astrology,
you can’t deny we were written in the stars,
and we could be read to filth.
You saw me and couldn’t wait
to get under my skin.
You sunk your claws into me
and stung me with your love.
It’s an inseparable love
doused in passion and addiction.
You have a grasp on me
and don’t wanna let go.
But we didn’t know it would be toxic.
I was too stubborn to walk away,
because I madly love you so.
When I saw red, I was ready
to charge in for a fight.
But you always scuttled away to hide,
diving your head into the sand.
So, when it was time for our story to end,
I stampeded all over your heart,
with my horns stabbing you.

Saddest… OFAllTime

I dont know what it will take
to heal this tragic heartbreak.
Waking up every day is more miserable
than the days we spent together enduring our troubles.
I wish this bed would concave and hurt,
in crushing, crippling comfort.
If it means you’re not lying here beside me,
I’d rather descend to Hell in misery.
I want my tears to drown me in this forlorn,
because this inner war of truth makes my body torn.
Without you, I constantly choke when I breathe,
and I wait for the day my heartbeat will cease.

Love at Airports

Holy my lanta – it’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted anything, and for that, there will be a formal “update” post with what I’ve been up to and what’s coming to my blogosphere. But for now… I wanted to share a profound observation and experience I had recently…

It was midday at the Portland airport as I killed time waiting for one of my best friends to arrive. I was reading a book at Starbucks, facing the exit doors toward baggage claim.

Periodically I heard shouts and screams of joy and looked up (SQUIRREL!) to see people embracing, hugging, kissing, smiling. It’s like that opening and closing scene from one of my favorite movies I watch annually—Love Actually.

Witnessing everyone reunite with loved ones in these random unfolding moments is to witness love in its primal form. That moment of a jolt of happiness and the warm feelings of being with the people you love—whether it’s family, friends or your significant other.

Sometimes we categorize “seeing love” in specific defined moments around holidays, anniversaries, birthdays or relationships, but take a backseat and people-watch at airports (okay, but don’t get creepy) and you’ll see pure love at its finest!
