Are you afraid of the dark?

Getting ready for Oct. 24th spoken word poetry event. Here is another new poem;

When we were young,
How many of us cried out,
“Just wait until I’m older!”

Look, as the adults around nervously fidget in their seats as their minds raced to –
“Don’t wish this hell on yourself.”

Remember when Hide and Go seek was a game you played with friends?
Well now that I am older it has become a game I play with love.

Love doesn’t play fair. It’s like Red Rover, Red Rover
Except love clotheslines you.
Every. Single. Time.

Mom kissing my skinned knees when I fell
Became Mom trying to get me to stop hyperventilating
long enough for me to tell her
he doesn’t love me anymore.

When I was young,
it was the monsters under the bed that scared me.
No one warned me to be afraid of the monsters in my bed.
I didn’t realize monsters could look so much like men that I loved,
so much so that I started questioning love and not men.

We learned to grieve when our pets passed away,
but how little opportunity we had to learn to grieve when the love of our life chose to walk away.
“Hey, I can still see you over there.
Happy.
Without me.”

How we are so affected by the choices we make
and don’t make,
and how they control our lives.

Love scares me
You scare me
He scares me
She scares me

I guess you could really say
I scare me.

What a beautiful world we live in,
where we can face that fear head on
and come out a little bit more alive.

I have been in more wedding dresses than I care to count… So I threw on one more for David’s Bridal Wedding Expo 2014!

Adventures in Amsterdam

im going to be honest… At this point I’m not even sure what day of the trip I am actually on. The fun and traveling and drinking and laughing all caused everything to blur together on the road trip of a lifetime. 

Let me just start with Amsterdam… Wow. 

Originally not a place on our map to visit, we last minute drew it in. And just wow. The history, the tours, the friendships, the live sex show (what?! It’s Amsterdam!), and the staying up at an Irish Pub until 4am singing “Don’t stop believing”made this the most memorable part of the whole trip. 

It was coming to an end, and ended on a bang. My eyes are tearing up just writing this post. 

  

Beard Shenanigans

If not loading above you can watch here!

It took months to grow. It smelled of vomit, and held food particals from before it’s time.

It was time for the beard to die.

Unsure how to approach the man beast cuddled up next to the hairy monster, I politely suggested, “It is time for that beard to go.” He reared his head, nostrils flared. Then came the tears and the pleading. “Please let me keep my pet beard. Please!” However, the decision was made, and the beard was shaved off that day. Make sure you watch Adrian’s Vlog by clicking here! You will laugh, you will cry… but mostly you will laugh.

We were inspired by Rhett and Link’s video, “How to Kill a Mustache” which you can watch if you click the link here.
