NaNoWriMo :: Day 1

Didn’t get off to the best start on Day One (just a little over 600 words) but I kept telling myself: “I started.” That’s what matters right? To begin. To commence. I mixed it up a little and played with free-writing on Day One instead of choosing a specific moment on the timeline to sketch. […]

Sexual Musings :: Book Boyfriend

“I spend my midnight hours in bed with men who are trained to take punches and rifled with scars. Their voices are cavernous echoes guarded by lips that have been busted. Men who are firm handshakes and booted feet, arms of iron and gravel laughter. I crawl between the sheets and embrace them with both […]

“Give me strong hands and curious eyes, calloused and questioning. Lift the corners of my bedsheets on the west side, and shake out the dust of them being empty these last few years. Come to me riddled in the color of new beginnings and teach me there is love blooming under my skin.” ©️ Pearl […]
