It happened in slow motion, my worst fear was literally unfolding right before my eyes. With a huge crash, I watched her head bounce off the floor as the room turned to stop and stare. My first thought was “shit that’s not good”, second thought was “thank god it wasn’t me”, third thought was “well […]Read more "Early Finish | (The Bare Essentials Series)"
“Where have you been?” Caroline said with a flare of dramatics as if I stepped off the face of the earth. “Around.” “What’s that suppose to mean?” “I had a life crisis jeez get off my back it’s not like you are my mother.” “I may not be, but your mother has been calling me for […]Read more "Possibly Illegal | (The Bare Essential Series)"
“Sometimes we need to escape, from life, emotions, an ex. But the big question is how to do this without being told I’m “dissociating” ( I actually used air quotes explaining this to my therapist).” I said with frustration wrapping my voice in a blanket. “Like honestly why can’t I just have a good wrestle […]Read more "Forbidden Affair | (The Bare Essentials Series)"
I feel empty, not in the sense of not having a person to satisfy me but in the sense that nothing seems to be making much sense in life. Goals & milestones are all part of life.

“Abstances makes the heart grow founder and balls bluer. Here’s the thing blue balls are not just a thing with men. How do I know? Because I’ve had them.

“Vivian, why are you sleeping around?” my therapist asked. “Why don’t you?” “That’s not the question.” “Well, does it really matter why?” “To understand your behavior it will.” Behavior, like what have I done so damn wrong? It’s not like I’m not being cautious, there’s a reason I order bulk in condoms. “Are you calling […]Read more "Solo Prostitution | (The Bare Essentials Series)"

Not even a week into my one on one therapy and here I sit devouring chocolate. It’s smooth and sweet, just like the adventure I meet in London. A New Year a new me, or so the saying goes, but around 12:30 am on New Year’s day, I was back to my old self. Guess […]Read more "London Boy | (The Bare Essentials Series)"
Her lips were soft, her touch firm, she smelled of roses and her juices tasted like liquid velvet. She was a distraction, someone I knew in my heart I didn’t want to see again but fulfilled me for the night. I laid in bed curled up in my sheets into the early morning hours staring […]Read more "Slithering Control | (The Bare Essentials Series)"
Tomorrow is my first one on one session since the stone age and here I am sitting in my apartment staring at the walls wishing I had someone else to talk too. Someone who wouldn’t judge me for the emotional baggage I’ve deposited in the Delaware river. Dredging it up will be like sinking into mud, […]Read more "Plaster Prison | (The Bare Essential Series)"
