“Tara, you can have the house,” I said. “You can have it all.” Tara looked down and away. “You sure?” We’d been on the verge of divorce for the better part of a year. I’d hoped the trip to Mexico would change things — light the spark again kind of thing. No such luck. SheContinue reading “Divorced (Make Love to Me) – Dusting off Dreams”
The depth of her green oval eyes encapsulates every part of me, sending chills the length of my spine it does. A breath under a tongue kiss grants me permission, permission to speak.
