Inside

You attempt to crawl inside my head Inside my head Inside my head You attempt But you don’t know me You think you do But I know better That you see what you want You see what I let you So you attempt to creep and slither To break and enter To place inside of […]

The Awakening

First, the wind gently tugs then whips her hair, wisps slashing across her nose and cheeks. She stubbornly tucks the loose strands behind her ear in vain; she refuses to tie it up. It’s been far too long that she’s been tied up, knotted, wound tight for someone else’s expectations. Tonight, at least, she stands, […]

Loyalty

What happened to loyalty? We seem to have forgotten it. Ever in the pursuit of finding something better, something bigger, more likes, more follows, and wistful notoriety, we have left behind this basic principle. Even in your mistakes, missteps, hiccups or poor choices, triumphs or failures: I choose loyalty to you. tara caribou | ©2020

Winter Peace

I’ve been spending as much time as I can on my beach, letting the quiet soak into my bones and its peace cover my soul. I have a narrow road to recovery but it is these moments that I find myself able to heal, little pieces at a time. Parts of me feeling betrayed. Parts […]

Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

Earthquake

So I’m dogsitting/housesitting right now while my friends are on vacation. About midnight and the dogs start acting weird. I’m annoyed because I want them to be sleeping. I’m laying in bed, relaxing but not asleep yet. Ugh. Leave me alone, fucking dogs. This is why I don’t have any pets. They’re whining. Wanting on […]

Little Lies

I would rather have you for just a little while and then suffer a heartbreak than to have never experienced your love at all. ….At least, that’s what I keep telling myself. tara caribou | ©2018

Revisiting Contentment and Happiness

Working through my current issues of depression, I’ve been soul-searching, attempting to put a finger on what the underlying issue is. I was reading a fellow blogger’s website earlier and he mentioned getting attuned to the underlying issues and remembering that there is no “fix” but to accept what is and to embrace those failings. […]

PS: I Miss You

Remember those days and nights when we used to text each other every minute that we had? I do. When we shared every little stupid insignificant thing and it was mildly embarrassing but still I did it anyway. Telling you all the worst parts of me. I figured if you knew all the dumb stuff […]

Like Always, You

I woke up in the middle of my night and like always my first waking thoughts are of you. Always you. I lay here for long drawn out moments and like always debate sending a message to you. Always you. I know that you’re off in some far away land and like always life makes […]
