Notice

I hope everyone is doing well in the final leg of this awful year( Anyone else feel like they didn’t see it coming?).

I’ll be making a site name change and content update soon. I do feel like I’ve grown and evolved since I’ve started this blog and I wish for it to reflect that. My purpose has shifted and it’s only fitting for this site to represent that.

With that being said I’m looking forward to the future and all that it holds. I do hope to continue to move forward and forge new realtionships with fellow bloggers and readers( and strengthen the ones I have already ).

A new installment I’m working on is going to be centered around guest posts so I would love to get anyone interested involved. You can use my site as a platform for your thoughts and cause,  sharing is caring after all.

If you would like to be involved or talk about something in particular please email me at:

sendlitaer@gmail.com

and we can discuss further details there.

Thank you so much for the continued support and watch the space for the site update.

Bloodied

Bloodied

laid with another
in our marriage bed
sans protection
covered it with new sheets.
                        tests came back
 – now I am positive –
 that it’s our deathbed.

Side effects

Side effects

no one ever said
that I’d still worry;
that I’d find myself
thinking whether you’re alright
whether you’re eating okay
sleeping alright through it all
if you’re coping in general.

That even though we severed us,
scorched all the remains,
me and you would still be a reality.

It’s the one side effect I thought I wouldn’t get.

Bereaved

Bereaved

They say it gets better with time
That the gaping hole that you left behind
will some how find itself filled with time.
When your coffin occupied the ground
and your soul left my heart,
I began looking around
then started falling apart
and all the words heard and said
all went past my head.

I wish you could be here now;
it’s not getting better at all
I still see your favorite coffee
and your running shoes in the corner,
Screw them and their stages of grief,
Everything is still falling apart,
you’re gone and it hurts

Seasick

Seasick

“There are plenty of other fish in the sea”
so she left him hooked,
breathless in a foreign land.

                  moving against currents,
ignoring the warnings of his fellows
away from the safety of the deep below
his mind swims to the edge
        – unaware and baited
he waited
only to get caught.

so she left him hooked
within her being
and left him gasping for air
in a foreign land

Pyrotechnic

Pyrotechnic

I miss you,
the sparks we shared
still ignite in some ways;

Your smile the match.
A short fuse in the quiet mind’s
loud thoughts of regret and devotion.
The “I still need you” that escapes me
like a smoker’s hand to a lighter,
all have me in flames;
wishing to burn in your existence once more.

Yet knowing that is all up in smokes.

Light from Lita
See you soon.
