Interracial couple being intimate in front of window

Interracial couple being intimate in front of a window.


I lunge at Kurt and we fall in a tumble of arms and legs. I haven’t been this angry in a very long time. Hurting him is on the forefront of my mind.


Getting the upper hand, I’m above him. He’s splayed on the ground below me and I let my fist fly, smashing against his nose. Immediately, it bleeds, sending red liquid down into his mouth and all over his neck seeping into his shirt.


“Shit!” he screams. “You broke my fuckin’ nose!”


Movement out of the corner of my eye grabs my attention. Standing above the both of us is Alessandra. Her cup is tipping up to her lips for a drink while her eyes glare down at the two of us. Her expression isn’t surprised or horrified; it’s bored, like she’s seen this kind of thing a million times.


The entire party has encircled us at a very safe distance. My focus returns and I calm down. I peer around because I sense a slew of eyes gawking at me. It’s quiet; even the music is turned off. I’m one of those guys!


I have crossed the line. I have turned into an asshole like Kurt. I am the one stirring the shit, making a scene, making the whole party uncomfortable for everyone. I have done the exact thing that I criticize others for.


“Are you done?” Alessandra is annoyed.


“Troy! What the hell!?”


Jake takes hold of my forearm and hauls me up. Kurt’s hands are plastered to his nose where the blood is gushing out. A blond girl I don’t know hands him a tissue.


The ride back to the dorm is silent. Jake is pissed at me and Alessandra… she doesn’t seem mad or anything but she has a faraway look in her tipsy eyes. We get off the elevator and Jake goes straight to his room. Alessandra and I go to mine. I can’t take the quiet anymore.

“I’m sorry,” I confess.

I toss my keys in the bowl by the door and check my watch. It has barely been two hours since we left. Alessandra is in my mini-fridge taking out a beer.

“Whoa.” I walk to her. “I think you’ve…” Alessandra’s lips crush mine and the can in her fingers hits the floor. She is all over me. I gently pull her arms away. “Hold on a sec.” She easily slips her arms out of my grasp and wraps them back around my neck. She leans in again kissing me. It’s amazing… but wrong. I unwrap her body from mine. “I think we should call it a night.”

Alessandra’s eyes drift open at my words. A mix of emotion is there— hurt, exhaustion, fear. Her arms fall to her sides, seemingly too heavy for her to hold up anymore. Her eyes close and beneath her lashes little tiny tears drop.

Doors Into The Past


What does a door represent?   Do you view it as nothing more than a barrier between yourself and the outside world? After reading this post, perhaps you will begin to see doors in a new light!

The photo of the white door above, was taken while visiting Wasington DC recently.  This symmetrically designed door was attached to a stone house dating back to the 1800’s!  Imagine how much history is ingrained within the wooden fibers of this very door!  If only it had the capability to speak, the stories it could recount, of how the world has evolved around it, over the centuries!   Alas, that last thought, is but a dream, that will never come to fruition!  One can only use their imagination, to picture the experiences this door has been privy to, over the years!


The vibrant, red hue, and unique, architectural design, of these double, church doors, mimicking the shape of a church, are hard to miss, while strolling the streets of Washington DC.  They bear an inscription, carved at the edge of the stairs, dedicating the stairwell, to a woman. Who was this woman, given the privilege, of having her name engraved outside these church doors? Was she a prominent church member? Only those that inscribed her name here for eternity, would know that answer!

These are only two examples, of the dozens of doors I have photographed, on my travels. Doors have always intrigued me. The different, architectural moldings, the plethora of colors, the manner in which, homeowners stage an inviting scene, with the door as the focal point, to welcome visitors to their homes, shows they care about how others view the appeal, of their home.  Your choice of front door color, and design, sends a message to the world. What does your front door say about you?

Early to Rise, Views Early Day’s Sunrise!.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Golden Hour.”


The Golden Hour of sunrise is truly a magnificent sight to witness! Breathtaking, with its kaleidoscope of colors, spreading seductively, across the darkened skyscape, illuminating the entire horizon, bathing it, with luminous light, eradicating traces, from the earlier darkness.  All the while, the circular, glowing orb of sunlight, continues to rise among the mural of multicolored natural beauty.  The star, of nature’s daily, dance of grace.

Unfortunately, I am not much of an early riser myself. I abhor mornings! I would much rather be up late, to the early hours of the morning and sleep late. Although, once in a blue moon, my body just won’t let me sleep in the morning, or in some cases, it’s my cat, crying at my bedroom door, demanding that it be opened, in order for him to procure additional treats, or to obtain water from the sink, despite having his own full bowl downstairs.  Either way, he demands in! I can’t ignore a crying kitty at my bedroom door after all! :) Needless to say, whether it’s my body refusing to stay asleep, or my cat at my door, I have been privileged to view quite a few sunrises.  Each one stunning, each one unique! Should you ever be awake at 5:30 AM,  be certain to grab a camera, or your Smartphone, and capture it’s exquisite beauty yourself!
