RIP Forever.

” I said hello, and asked what he wanted.  He responded with a classic lie: “I missed you.”  I would miss me too, I mean your girl is out here living her best life looking like a whole meal.  I said  “Ok.” Like what am I supposed to do about that? That seems like a personal problem to me.  He kept going, “I just wanted to talk to you.  I made a huge mistake.  You’re the one for me.  I need you in my life.  I want to marry you.”  My jaw dropped because for years I wanted to marry this man.  Can you imagine thinking that 3 years in is the time, then year five comes and no proposal, and finally, your relationship is over by year seven.  Instantly my past started contending with my future. “©Simone Holloway, 2019

Our words or actions communicate that these individuals we swear to love are not: good enough, kind enough, smart enough, beautiful enough, and etc. After awhile our significant others are knocked out of their throne of awesomeness, their empire of confidence and begin to question what makes them special and unique. “

Secret Room

There’s a secret place, a hidden room within the confines of my heart-that few can get to. It’s in this room where all of my dreams and inner desires are held. Held captive… It’s here where the truest form of myself resides… A place that is hard to find, a room that is hard to unlock-…
