living alone, here in this place. i think of you, and i’m not afraid.

Now I can't quite say that "Cleveland" and I have … Continue reading living alone, here in this place. i think of you, and i’m not afraid.

late at night i toss and turn and dream of what i need. i need a hero. i’m holding out for a hero ’til the morning light.

I'm just going to say it.  I'm going to tell to tell you how it is.  How it's always been.  Like rapid spitfire, here are the facts of my life.  My love life- or lack thereof.  Like a game of 21 questions, I'll give my answers- without any questions being asked.  Okay, here it goes: I had my first "boyfriend" within … Continue reading late at night i toss and turn and dream of what i need. i need a hero. i’m holding out for a hero ’til the morning light.

and now and then I get to wonderin’…what would have happen if we never met…
