sometimes i like to romanticize the shit i've been through, and sometimes i just want to recognize that trauma is trauma, and it's never a good thing, and i wish i haven't suffered the way that i have, and it did not make me a better person, and i don't want to weave a beautiful tapestry from the threads of pain i've lived through.
Taking risks to open up,
Making it more than just a one night stand,
Take a step forward,
Follow that sign from the universe,
because life happens outside ur comfort zone,
and it is by taking risks.
Stop protecting what’s left from the storm.
You still have hope,
Maybe you can finally healed,
Maybe you will change for better,
Maybe you begin to love yourself again after all the bruises and blue.
Maybe it’s not him as your next lover,
Maybe you will end up broken again,
before it even begin,
but maybe there’s a reason why is he here now in your life,
and it’s for greater good, for sure.
Just take that step,
And your heart will start beating again.

this morning before waking
i had a nightmare. a man grabbed my
bulldog, right in front of me
and locked her in a cooler. I
confronted him, he pulled a snubnose 45,
which i wrestled away, without
incident, and when he refused
to produce the key, I shot
the lock 4 times until it opened.
I unlatched the cooler
and picked up Matilda and she immediately jumped out of my arms.
we walked off, badly shaken,
our bearings lost. When i woke
I felt better, but then a feeling
of malaise overcame me. I let
that man live, with one bullet left.
you might say, it was only a dream
well sure, but evil can’t be allowed
to run free, even in our dreams,
maybe even especially .
