To be present, truly in the moment, involves the people, places and things within reach. What is beyond one's range of vision is of no concern (it isn't even real, anyway.) "Well, you won't have to listen to that again." "Thank gawd." "Pretty much the problem though, yeah?" ... crickets... Continue reading

My core ought to feel like it's pierced by arrows each time you are near. In your eyes I see a forgotten life and feel the vague familiarity of a neighborhood in which I once lived. We are quivering heaps of pent up emotions which we mistake for attraction; desire.... Continue reading

Previously... Darla on the mountaintop, proclaiming to the four winds, with a silver chalice in her left hand and a finely-wrought blade of steel in the right: Both of these accessories are in play as they pertain to my energy and destiny. It is almost as though we are not... Continue reading

The world was carved by the right hand of the pagliacci. Reality is as entertaining as one's daydreams, and as tangible as the gash you stanch with little chance of it becoming a scar. We all weep at the sight of a well-rehearsed faux pas. Perseverance is the best way... Continue reading

You're better off finding a trusted civilian who'll listen to your (what usually are very amusing) existential crises, and maintaining a lifestyle where your body and mind are allowed to perform at peak proficiency. Sorry, I hope that didn't come out sounding all preachily privileged because, you know: You are... Continue reading

Nightly we dream of a more perfect version of each other. Oblique references abound regarding "My Best Self." Gary knows his heart has a direct line to his "Dream Girl." So much is at stake when LOVE is the order of the day. Annoyed by limited clothing options, Gary shines... Continue reading

Oh my gosh! Remember my question last Tuesday? "You don't even play the game, do you?" And how you shook your head with a wide-eyed look and mouthed the word No? Scouts were on the lookout all along. The noticers noticed who showed up. Another way to put this? You... Continue reading

Previously... I'm good with sitting out delays. I've basically been in a three-year holding pattern. I hope these days have not been a waste of energy. If I came to this place to deliver a message *("You've only got ten good years left. Turn your daydreams into something I can... Continue reading

As Gary woke up this morning, and realized it was Friday instead of Saturday, he proclaimed to the limoncello-colored walls of his boudoir: "Faack. No clean clothes. No chance of calling in sick, either." So Gary creakily got out of his four-poster and walked into his closet to have a... Continue reading

Time is fluid, and what I said yesterday is a betrayal sneaking up on you in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ... The downfall has happened. It goes back to my desire for seeing you leave before the month is out. I have enough strength for the both of us,... Continue reading

Sometimes when I talk to you, your eyes are distorted by a liquid shimmer. "I'm not crying. You're crying!" A dead guy once called that rheumy-eyed stare "the puddly look of nostalgia." Are you reliving the past when you look at me? I have to admit there was something oddly... Continue reading

We're like feral children coming up in here. Raised by wolves. Literally.

A constellation is emblazoned across your chest. Your heart; the center of the universe. You've traveled far to hear the words: You are mine Across space And time.

Previously... Sometimes life is like waking up in the middle of a story. What happened yesterday probably never happened. And tomorrow? Tomorrow is written in-between remembered moments. Like you buying the yellow cardigan from Sarita's Secondhand Sweaters. She's one of the newer vendors down at the Prairie View. Speckled here... Continue reading

Previously... Reveries are states in which Darla creates. Make a suggestion and Darla will be covered in pinpricks and scraps of velvet for the next month.
