A Letter To September

Dear September, You have been a breath of fresh air, in more ways than one. While smoke filled the sky, my lungs were gripped with a sadness I could not shake. Then you came along before I was even ready. Thanks for that metaphorical slap in the face, September. I honestly really needed that. Although…

A Letter To August

Dear August, I’m sorry I’m late. Everything came crashing down again as if it was only a matter of time. I was holding on to hope that this new adventure would give me what I needed to turn things around yet here I am, scrambling to turn my world right side up. There are moments…

A Letter To July

Dear July, I want to start by saying thank you. You were not perfect, but you were just what I needed. You took me on weekend getaways and got me out of my shell more than I have ever been before, July. I can’t imagine where I would be now without that. Just for this…

A Letter To June

Dear June, What a whirlwind you’ve been. I did not expect for my life to be going in this direction. What direction that is, I’m not quite sure. It’s new and uncertain and so very different. Everyday I am faced with reminders of how different things are from the last time. Or really, how different…

A Letter To May

Dear May, Where do I begin? It feels like just yesterday I was writing to April. Now we’ve barely had time to breath. I’m taking advantage of my three day weekend and giving myself a mini vacation. I will be traveling back to see old friends and spend some time catching up with writing. If…

Letter to Heartbreak

How do I explain A grief that was never mine But it’s your birthday And I don’t know what to say Except I wish you were here I wonder about How different life would be If you had stayed A few weeks might have changed The direction of our lives But now I don’t think…

A Letter To April

Dear April, I want to say this month has been peaceful but in reality, it’s been far from that. By the time you’re reading this, April, we will have closed down my office and moved everyone back to the main building. I understand why, but I still feel a pang of sadness when I think…

A Letter To March

Dear March, I keep trying to write you this letter but nothing I write seems good enough. It feels like what I’m writing is inauthentic and that I’m forcing a positive outlook on the month. In reality, March, I spent most of this month stuck in my head not being able to focus on what…

A Letter To February

Dear February, I wonder if there are times that you feel unloved. I wonder if we gave you Valentine’s day to make up for having the least amount of days. Do you feel appreciated? I don’t think I would if I were you, but I guess my opinion doesn’t matter all that much. I tried…

To My Best Friend On Her Birthday

ThisĀ is the dawning of the age of Aquarius. Okay, so it isn’t but the other day I was thinking about we’re both Aquarian and immediately heardĀ that song Aquarius (from the musical Hair) playing in my head. This is all irrelevant but you know how I love my musical numbers. I should really start by telling…

War and Plea

Dear Stranger, Lonely man Desperately begging Once again Every other word An apology For the next Unanswered plea Empty promise That it’s the last Never changing From the past Same old stories You compose Like poison ink In clever prose Giovane uno I am no more A messenger Sent to war I’ve made my peace…

A Letter To January

Dear January, It’s hard to believe you’re almost gone already. I wonder if it’s because I’ve spent this month counting the days for the next big thing, or if I’m just getting older so time seems to pass quicker now. I have a favorite song this month that sums up my feelings quite well. Am…
