This Is Goodbye

He was her weakness Brown skinned kryptonite The one person whose lips could make her throw caution to the wind Whose touch had her acting out of character He knew the power he held Wielded his affection as a weapon Used his love as an anchor Keeping her close even though he had no ambition…

Old Flame

The sip of robust coffee coated her taste buds Giving her tongue the hug her body ached for. Yearning for the embrace of his arms around her. Fulfilling those promises he texted her. It was suppose to be a romantic getaway just for the two of them A chance to meet again And rekindle that…

Stranded with Mr. Snow

Part 6 “For the road.” Hudson handed her the festive tin. Savoy abruptly stopped the motion of the container with her palm and shook her head. “Nah, one is enough.” “One?” His eyebrows knitted but it wasn’t from the bright sun beaming over them doing nothing to combat the wintry temperature that made his leather…

Stranded with Mr. Snow

Part 5 They started with Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer snuggled under a thick corded blanket sitting on opposite sides of the couch with Clover resting in her bed near the tree and the fireplace ablaze sipping on a fresh batch of hot cocoa.

The flowers had welted The vase was bone dry Although her eyes weren’t Empty tissue boxes filled her trash can Her appetite had vanished The pain was too strong She was evaporating in despair Wasn’t she enough She gave her all Tried her best To be the partner he’d truly admire Even though her friends…

An Unbalanced Apology

She cradled them Delicate bulbs resting in the crook of her elbow Seemed to weigh a ton Probably costed him a pretty coin If it was any other day, She’d be happy If the bouquet was for another reason She’d be smiling But this wasn’t any other day And it wasn’t for another reason He…

Stranded with Mr. Snow

Part 1 “It stopped!” Savoy harked, dashing to the window with the burst of energy that her third cup of coffee fueled her with.  It had been four hours since she was forced to exit from the freeway due to an overturned eighteen wheeler and three hours since she was forced to pull over due…
