Generation Swipe – #amwriting

Be interested But not too interested You’ll scare him off. You don’t want him to know you like him but you do Like him Make him wait but not too long He’ll move on. He’ll lose interest and think you’re crazy Be laid back, but don’t cake your face on but don’t be too chill,…

& Seven Daze

Some relationships just end on a cold Monday for no reason at all and some come to a screeching halt because one person took the other for granted and didn’t recognize the other’s worth. Sometimes you’re both silently sitting in the living room on a Saturday blindsided by the notion that it ended eons ago…

& Neighborhood Watch: Oakland

4 in the 412: Oakland Most people hear Oakland and think of California but if you’re a true Pittsburgher or you’ve been to college you’ve ventured into Oakland. At any given time it’s crawling with culture, college students, and great cuisine. Venture far into Oakland and you’ll find yourself wrapped up in the many places….

& Metaphorically Speaking III

Like a knot in your favorite pair of headphones I’m a mess Just trying to get him out of my system It’s like you meet someone You plan forevers and kids and then it ends Sometimes forever is tomorrow It’s like after him you’re dating placeholders because you’re holding on to hope That after years…

& Okay Ever After

I wonder if Snow White is okay right now? Did she grow tired of cleaning up after Prince Charming?  His charm is probably long gone by now. Has she gone mad from having seven one dimensional men as her only friends? I’m a hopeless romantic but sometimes I think she should’ve just ate  the apple for peace…

& Re(Introduction)

It took a decade of frustration but all your indecisive ways were a blessing in disguise I’d try and I’d try to get you to love me the way that I loved you the most but I was asking something of you that you couldn’t give. Not even big things just flowers, “Thinking of you,”…

& Metaphorically Speaking II

Your love constantly pulled at my heart strings creating an array of knots that took me years to untangle. How did we get so intertwined… Your love was like constantly trying to swim upstream without a paddle with a block anchored to my foot exerting all the energy in the world yet getting nowhere Why did I…

& 11:11

It’s 11:11 and instead of making wishes I’m up smiling thinking about the art that’s gonna be bomb when I’m done processing the hurt you put me through …again. I thought we were done with the back and forth the junior high games… Why can’t you make up your mind Why are you so freakin’…

& Chess

We’re like a game of chess and instead of protecting our Queens,  we’re protecting our hearts…again. Because the scariest thing about loving someone is they not only have the power to make you smile from your soul but the have the power to break every being of your spirit. You move one way,  I move…

& Butterflies

I only know how to love you, even if you don’t want me to… After all these years you still give me butterflies in the deepest pits of my stomach. Your rare smiles make the corner of my eyes curl. I can still see the young man I met years ago every time I stare…

& Today it Happened

It was today. A lightbulb went off Everything you had been saying for years It finally clicked I finally realized I had been holding on to us because I didn’t want to be a quitter. You know You’ve always made me feel like “The crazy one” I love you. I’ll always freakin love you. I…
