Literature
Words Fail
When they're important
My words fail
They never weep as they ought
When your way is dark
And I share your loneliness
They can't hold you
When I know how you struggle
And I long to give you strength
They won't dance
When forever seems eternally joyous
Or sing the laughter you give my soul
My words fail
But I take comfort
In our lifetime
Of shaping my actions
To all I want my words to be

Three O'Clock
The three o'clock hours are the worst
When the world goes silent
And the already slow time just
Seems to
Stop
It's either too early or too late
To pour coffee and contemplate
The day ahead or behind
But I can't keep my mind quiet
And my bed is too empty
Without the warmth of you

Literature
Missing you
I miss your skin
Sweeping the heat of my fingers
Down the coolness of your back
I miss your stubble
The sandpaper roughness at my lips
Smoothing my mood
I miss your arms
Around me, under me
The feel of your shoulders
Strong enough to bear our family
Even across oceans
I miss your heartbeat,
Waking in the night knowing I'm not alone
And being able to breathe peacefully
In sync with you

Literature
New Season
The warmth of your body is like the walls of home
Or the feeling that the seasons have finally shifted
Less a thing, and more an idea
A moment
A certain shade of blue in the sky
The particular direction that shadows streamed into my bedroom
Promising a beautiful day
All caught up in the feel of you
Fingertips snagging satin and sliding over my skin
Whispering vows once again

Literature
Waiting
There are sheets of rain
Falling cold
Drumming on the roof
And ground
And windows
The windows look at a bedroom
Bed messy
Piled high with pillows
And quilts
And blankets
All arranged around a woman
Fast asleep
Limbs embracing a pillow
And still
And waiting

Literature
September Night
My shadow was cast on the ground
skimming rough stones
And summer dried weeds
Clouds arced in the sky
Like ripples around the north star
Pale echoes of the crescent moon
Inside my bed was empty
Save for tousled blankets
And far too many pillows
I can’t imagine sharing my mattress
Setting aside computer cords
And inhaling the scent of a man
My memories should be more tangible
Able to be taken out every so often
And wrapped like a favorite sweater
Around my cold arms

Literature
Motherhood
Love isn't sweet
It's bitter
Robust
It makes your eyes water
And your lips purse
Tender moments hardly exist
They can only be grabbed
When least expected
And are more delicate and shy
Than wild horses
Love makes you steel your heart
Hold back your open arms
And allow tears to fall
How I imagined it
Love is nothing at all
It fades and passes
And leaves nothing but
Sweetness
Love is so much more
Complex as wines
Both bitter and sweet
Tart and cooling
It is a far headier vintage
Than I imagined
When I was young
And we had only ourselves

Basking
Basking in the moonlight
I realized your sunlight
Made my night brighter

Literature
Grasshopper legs
My creativity has gone
Flown away to tomorrow
And the other side of the world
I don't know if I'm too old to play dress up
If I can rationalize wearing armor again
To save the world with pencils
And a majestic cloak
Or if joy can come leaping back
On bright blue and orange grasshopper legs

Literature
Wind
I watched the wind today
It had a mane of white capped waves floating behind it
The grass undulated away from its hooves
And the trees swept their branches out of its path
They showed their silver undersides in homage
Bowing before their ruler
I stood my ground and embraced the wind
It crashed against me
Tried to set my feet stumbling for balance
Before giving up
And entering my lungs
And carrying be above the treetops

I'm Mimi, I haunt tumblr and DA regularly, I am a fangirl, a college graduate, and married to a wonderful man.

I draw and write, neither very well, I am afraid, but I am getting better.
Interests
I guess this is just going to be a once a year thing.

This past year was very good.

My husband came home. I moved out of OK, and started to really learn how to run a household. Suddenly meal planning and childcare and shopping was all on me, because, well, Trey works. He's busy 5:30am to 5:30 or later in the evening. So...I've learned more of this married and a housewife thing.
I expanded my meal rotation from 3-4 meals to almost 20.
I've learned to get creative with a budget. 
I've grown with my husband, learned how to help him with parenting frustrations.
We traveled together, explored this new area together.
His father passed away, and we've mourned together.
I've started, tentatively, to forgive the kiddo's birthmother for all her...stuff.

A busy year behind, a busy year ahead. 

Life is good.
