“Goodbye Kyle”

Online dating seemed rather worthwhile

Swiped right on a uniquely sublime profile

He had pretty teeth and a really nice smile

Exchanged DMs with this man named Kyle

Found out he lived close, just about one mile

Swayed by his charm, she gave him a trial

Charismatic, polite, seductive beguile

They met at the park and talked for awhile

He was impressed by her natural style

Virtuous, smart, incredibly versatile

Things went pretty well and she said “I’ll

Call you again” but in the meanwhile

She confirmed he had no criminal file

After only one year she walked down the aisle

Got married, honeymooned at Emerald Isle

Just six months later he became hostile

Hungover – destructive, unkind, juvenile

Family advised her it’s best to compile

Compact list of abuses, soon she had a pile

Contacted police, one touch speed dial

He tried to protest, wished she’d reconcile

She said she needs time, it may take a while

But couldn’t forgive behavior so vile

Came to her senses and said “Goodbye, Kyle”

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
