Bad Habits.

I really need to stop thinking that I can wait until after work to write these posts. Because, well...yeah.Better luck tomorrow. ...more

Cycles.

I am upside down when I feel her tiny hand run along my jawline, softly. I am starled, as I've been blow drying my hair (I know, shush) and while I knew she was watching, with my eyes closed tight so that I may process this activity tactily and also because vertigo messes me up in more ways than I casually let on, I didn't hear or feel her move closer.
