I’m hurt that you took from me the opportunity to be involved in so many pivotal moments in your life like moving to a new country and finding your first job and turning 29 and meeting the love the love of your life and finding the courage to propose. I just wish I had been there to experience you on both the most nerve-wrecking and happiest day of your life.
( A Boy Named Blue)
I don’t quite know the colour of his eyes in the morning or the taste of his smile at noon. I just know that my name sounds pretty rolling off his tongue and he looks at me like I’m magic or mythological or beautiful and it doesn’t make me uncomfortable.

from Secrets I Hear Through The Floorboards
By Megan C Lucas
The flowers she said she would get herself
lay suffocating on the floor
Clarissa was quiet and kept to herself
Leonard was never a listener
As the children grew absent
the silence grew loud
Clarissa and Leonard lived through it
She said she would get the flowers herself
maybe he should have just let her do it.
Now Clarissa lay wet on the floor with the flowers
and Leonard just counts the hours.
