Getting You

I’ve got nothing tonight.  The writing well is completely dry and I am watching the moments tick-tock closer to my midnight deadline.  Desperately searching for an idea, I look around and remember that I’ve got you…

after 13 years,

your phone voice still flips my heart switch

and my car being started every day makes up for the forgetting of my birthday

you are beyond my eye rolls

and within my silence

tonight, you are my idea



  1. What a heartfelt tribute to your partner of 13 years. Once your idea hit you, you found your mojo. Loved this simple, yet poignant piece.


  2. Perfect! These little slices are just what they need to be: just enough to capture a small slicer of life. Or in this case, so so much more.
