Coming and Going

The way they leave

Tells you


About who they are

This is true and it was said by one of the smartest people I know.

Did they ghost you and fade away? Was there a simple text declaring in a cowardly way that they were now breaking your heart? Was it in person? Were they crying before you realized what was happening? Was it clear that this was forever? Did they hate that they were going away? Are they promising to come back?

So if leaving tells you everything…

What about their arrival?

Do they ride in slinging fists full of cheer when you need it the most?

Are they suddenly hatching schemes to slay your demons for you?

Is the night suddenly fading with the sunrise they carry with them?

Are they a relentless hurricane pounding at your lonesome shores?

Can you feel they are picking up your pieces, making you whole again and ensuring you are stronger than ever?

Do you feel that you needed them before you ever knew they existed?

Are they the light on the door guiding you home through the storm?

Can you feel how they don’t want anything other than to see you rise up from your grave to take life by the throat?

Tell me…

What does their arrival tell you?

Love is patient
Love is kind

Love lies and says “This sphaghetti squash really does taste like pasta”

Love lets you have the rest of the nice chardonnay while you drink a warm Keystone Light

Love knows it was your partner’s fault that you got creamed on the tennis courts

Love knows that “Real Housewives of Where Ever” and the Food Network are just as awesome as college football

Love buys you the BFF heart pendant anyway cause He Knows you really want it

Love stops itself from rolling its eyes when you declare that you believe in a slicked back pony tail Jesus dressed in all black who makes snarky comments

Love says “sure, if light sabers were real you could buy one”

Love says yours is the biggest and best
