Lead Based Therapy Comforts Me...

Stress, panic, you name it I've got it. A research paper, my job, and life is collectively crowding my mental space. I don't have a new outlet to release all of this pent up energy and I feel myself reaching my maximum when I am ready to cut and run. I don't like that feeling. I have had enough of that bullshit to last me the rest of my days. I am not going into 2009 with lingering remnants of the dumb shit from the last ten years. Not one solitaire drop of it will follow me into the new year. That is why I am writing it like this, to release it.

Scared of Lonely
Crying tears of hurt that refuse to leave,
Scars of fights linger past that refuse to heal.
My legs are tired from running,
From my past, present and future
For fear of repeating past mistakes and missing future opportunities.
Walls all around me
Threatening to close me in
Tightening the encasement I see
Above, in front, behind, below…
I’m scared of lonely
Lost in my thoughts of not recovering
From that long ago
That held me in captivity,
That long ago that blocked my breathing,
Off in the distance I hear
The subtle beat of
The drums,
My drums,
In the distance.
The drums spur me, although
I’m scared of lonely
In the dark the tears pour
Racing from my eyes
In time with my thoughts,
Racing against the fears that appear under the cover of night
The fears that drive me to keep moving
To keep racing
To keep trying
Yet no one sees deep enough
Far enough
Or long enough
To see…
I’m scared,
Scared to reach out,
Scared to isolate
Scared to retreat
Scared to run forward
Scared of lonely…


Over these last few weeks I have been overwhelmed emotionally, more so than normal. And being overwhelmed is not normal. My dog, Scruffy, died. I am accepting the reality that my current partner is chauvinistic and immature. My ex had a stroke 2 nights ago and our eldest son had to call 911 to get him help (which saved his life). And my current partner, amidst his own temper tantrums, is angry because I went to make sure that the father of my three older sons is okay...


Aside from that I have begun doing solo interviews on BRPP Radio via the Sistahs With Purpose show which broadcasts on Wednesday nights at 9 pm EST and occasionally I host interviews on the BRPP Presents: The Interviewers show on Thursday nights at 9 pm EST.


I have begun editing and updating Entangled Hearts for re-release this year under my pseudonym Why Yet. I have also paused working on A Drink of Freedom, for now. I need to get my own drink of freedom before I can finish this story.


Chava turned one last week and Yehudi is completely potty trained. She has been wearing underwear during the day and night for two weeks now. No accidents.

Mentally Overloaded

Chasing behind two toddlers. Mourning the loss of our dog, Scruffy. Learning to make all natural body butter. Lack of sleep. Preparing for radio show every Wednesday night. The gold is at the end of the rainbow. It has to be. And a breakthrough must be near because I am close to my breaking point.

 So I opted to make a couple of no-bake cheese cakes to ease my mind. The first was an apple cheesecake. Oh, oh deliciously gorgeous! The second one was a mint chocolate cheesecake. Heavenly minty and lightly chocolate.

You ran and ran and ran

around my emotions like quicksand

after asking for my attention and affection.

You played with my emotions like a hand of black jack

threw other females in my face 
pushed my affection to the back

like I was second rate.
Now I'm at the point where I don't give a damn anymore

my feelings are raw and my emotions are sore

but you wanna try and blame ME

for the lack of intimacy

YOU created
when you gave X, Y, Z your attention...

A Drink of Freedom
