My heart breaks. Disolves.

She doesn’t love me.

Years of love; years of sacrifice.

Her father sleeps

out of overwhelming pain.

Nothing I can do;

nothing he can do.




She is ours. We love her.

He sleeps so he doesn’t feel.

Yet it isn’t true.

He just sleeps.

We love.

How does one ignore ignorance

when it’s one’s job to teach?

One ignores because of ignorance.

I am alone in this.

An atom.

A singularity; the strongest feelings

of love turned inside out.


Love łives here.

He’s broken.

I love him. I love her.

I still love her.

I still love him.

He rejects me to keep her.

I’m no longer allowed to love freely.

All is controlled by him. By her.

She is his. We love her.

Now our love is ticking.


Sunday Beer Blog: Amber Earth ESB

Today I partook in Arkose Amber Earth ESB. It poured medium gold, and was actually a lot like the print on the bottle. It’s small amount of head gave way to a yeasty, ordinary beer “non-smell”. Think Coors or Bud. (Don’t be upset Arkose!) I was a bit hesitant to take the first sip, but was met pleasantly by effervescence and a wonderful barley-yeast-hop combination.

I felt a little embarrassed by my hesitation because I should have known better. This is Arkose and they rock beer. They are a very consistent brewery.

A note on the hop bitterness- it was only slightly bitter. Online, the description shays “light hop bitterness” and I would agree. I wish it was a warmer day because it was very easy to drink and refreshing, but it still hit the spot overall.

I have to admit to drinking this without my husband. In my defense, he was having a beer with his buddy without me at the same time. I was a woman scorned. (I saved him a taster. I’m not an animal.)
