She Keeps Me Warm

This Is Your Song

Take a line from a song that you love or connect with. Turn that line into the title of your post.

She Keeps Me Warm by Mary Lambert is a great song.  It’s my kind of lesbian anthem, sweet and cheery.  The song is all about comfort and love.  I fell in love with the first time I heard it.

If I had written (wrote?) this post back when I first heard this song, the title of this post would have been “I can’t change, even if I tried, even if I wanted to.”

Last winter, Mercy was keeping the apartment so hot that I had to where shorts and a tank top whenever I was home.  One day this song came on and all I could think of was Mercy…She keeps me warm!

The Train that Wouldn’t Pass

It’s the end of Spring Break and I haven’t been out of the house much.  I’m bad about being active during breaks from school.

“Let’s get out of the apartment.  We need ice and I need to stop at he convenience store” Mercy prods me.

Ok, I’ll be ready in a minute.  What’s it like outside?   Is it raining?

“Not raining right now, the sun’s even out.”

I look in the mirror. Wow!  I showered last night, but my hair is spiked on one side.  A quick rub with a damp washcloth and some leave in conditioner and I look normal again.

Ready!  Let’s go.

I grab my jacket before heading to the door.  We walk out the door.  As I get two steps from the sidewalk, I see big rain drops slowly coming down.

“Shut up!  It wasn’t raining a minute ago!”

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha

I didn’t say a word, just put on my jacket and stepped into the rain.

Born to Be With You

Daily Prompt: Born to Be With You

Got a soul-mate and/or a best friend? What is it about that person that you love best? Describe them in great detail — leave no important quality out.

Mercy, Mercy, Mercy!

Mercy is my partner of 16 years.  She’s 5’10” , has short brown hair with blonde highlights, beautiful brown eyes, a cute little crooked nose, long elegant hands and feet, big-boned, flawless skin with a slight natural tan, and long legs.  She doesnt find herself beautiful, but I get lost in her face.  I have a thing for vampires and after her long stay in the hospital last year she now has semi-permanent vampire bite marks on her neck where her central line was. (I know I’m weird.)

Mercy: My Number One

Mercy is my number one, not just because she’s my partner.

Most people don’t get her and write her off before ever getting to know her.

She’s had a very hard life.  She survived her childhood with an undiagnosed sociopath for a mother.  Yes, I know what it means and do not use the word lightly.  Due to heredity and ‘nurture’, Mercy suffers from PTSD, severe anxiety, and bi-polar disorder.

This year she almost died due to a bowel impaction that poisoned her body and caused multi-organ failure complicated by pneumonia, appendicitis, and a bad gall bladder.  She was in the ICU for almost 2 months and was intubated and on a ventilator for a month.  Mercy had to relearn how to eat, talk, walk, etc.  She has had to have a temporary colostomy this year, but will be getting reattached at the beginning of the year.  Like I’ve said in earlier posts, it’s been a rough year.

Enough about the sad history.  This post is about why Mercy is my number one. Continue reading
