|It was fun while it lasted, Doll Face!|
"Sweetie. Are you okay?"
I was all dressed up, supposed to be at another amazing restaurant interview at 2:30 that day, when all of a sudden...
I'd been crying.
The months of pressure became too much. I was about to check into the hospital for help with the anxiety and panic that has become my world.
Life's been difficult.
His sweet voice danced over my shoulders, like a lullaby.
"Are you OKAY?"
I AM NOW.
My heavy lids lifted from the ground long enough to acknowledge the compassionate stranger.
I was taken back by stunning beauty.
Roger is the most gorgeous human being I've ever laid eyes on.
His smile would light up the world.
He lit MINE.
While I drown in his intense green eyes.
The windows to a beautiful soul.
He is home to an enormous heart.
One large and patient enough to include someone like me.
And, my Tolstoy.
I've found my genius.
more will be revealed...
P.S. In spite of my best efforts, the job interview turned out to be way farther than I thought it would be. I shall continue to pound the pavement. xoxo
