The name's Shayla
I love geeky things,
I love to write
I love tea :)
and I love my cat Serenity.

Sending a friend a text
"Is there anything you want prayer for?"
I know I might have just lost you.
But as we both know you were lost from the start.
All I want is for you to be found.
By Christ.
Or rather for Christ to be found by you.

Doing
Anything
Scares me.
Each line
Like tiny needles
Implanted
under my skin
Ready
To explode later
When I go back
To read this.

Mower, with NASA shirt
I wonder what you are thinking
As you hold that handel
As the engine roars
As the grass goes flying
As you enter orbit.

Every.
Little.
Word.
Is like a jab through my ribs of uncertainty

They scare me.
I can't use they well
Why did I ever think I could be a writer?

Wearings dads old plaid shirt
Tab after tab of Craiglist adds
pet friendly home
rent 650

I'll be leaving soon

Leaving your place
embrace among smokers
desperately taking their last inhales

Complimentary Lipton tea
I forgot such things exist
covering up the mistake
of hour long stops

turn, turn, bump, lean
This tea can't save my stomach
Yet
I am happy
I was able to exist with you

There's no love in a
empty inbox
empty mailbox
empty grasp
There's no love in a
empty smile
empty voice
empty gaze
