Over Me? Wanna Bet?

Early September She’s lost her temper Her nostrils bared a flare Weather reddened her eyes Misplaced goodbyes It’s either this or that always tied to a lie I’m with her as in never In the back of her mind Preserving spoiled time She knocks on the door We make love on the bedroom floor (© 2021 AC) (Wattpad, AmazonContinue reading “Over Me?

Tight Jeans (Take Them Off)

 “It’s a sin,” a girl said loud enough for only me to hear, hugging a biology book. We’re sitting in the library finishing our last assignment of the semester. This girl had dark hair, a black skirt, black lipstick, more than enough eyeshadow, and a dark-blue Hurley t-shirt. I was used to blonde hair andContinue reading “Tight Jeans (Take Them Off)”

Revenge (It’s Not You, It’s Me)

 “Your dad is in a better place, and I’m sure he’s looking down on you from Heaven,” I said, massaging Leah’s shoulders at her father’s funeral.  “You really believe that shit?” Leah said, raising a brow. “I shouldn’t even be here.” Leah folded her arms. “Have I ever been wrong before?” I gave her aContinue reading “Revenge (It’s Not You, It’s Me)”

A Bi-Line Might Work

“But you can’t meet my parents,” Rachel said, dropping her chin and holding her head in her hands. “It’s just–“ “What’d I do wrong?” I raised a brow. Rachel and I didn’t fight. We didn’t hold grudges. We’d get whatever we’d needed to off our chests and move forward.  Rachel blew out her lips. “YouContinue reading “A Bi-Line Might Work”

Bittersweet like Wine

It was February 14, 2003, and I slammed shots at Franks sports bar with some friends. I was the only single in the group. We’d go out most Friday nights. And this year, Valentines’ Day just happened to fall on Friday. By now in life, I’d hoped I’d be as happy as my friends. ButContinue reading “Bittersweet like Wine”

Strange Neighbor

Three weeks ago, a stranger moved in next door. But he was unlike the previous people to rent the three-story home. It’s not like I’d paid much attention to him; he was a tall, fit man with narrow green eyes and thick black hair that styled in place. I mean, it’s not like I wasContinue reading “Strange Neighbor”
