Confessions of a Jess.


Why yes, I do have a Cinderella toaster. And it makes an imprint of the glass slipper! #nevergrowingup #cinderella #disney #toaster  (at The Belefonte)

Confession

I like the way you sneer;
The way your eyes light
Up because adventure’s near.
I like how you laugh so loud
It’s like an explosion in my
Brain, but I’m still on Cloud
Nine. Your moves have sway;
Precise, clock-like, infinite.
When I see you, I go away
To a foreign place where I
Have strength and my
Muse has your face; we lie
Side by side so I can trace
Every tattoo, every hair, every
Inch of you that falls in place…
I like how your kindness is unending.
Your hard-working soul with
Hands so callused, bending
Back stings on old guitars;
The melody they sing is about
Love, spirit and hiding old scars.
I want to hold these hands and
Show how they have changed
My perception; gave me land
To stand on for the first time
Since I can remember when,
So much so I started to rhyme
Again like I was young and free…
All this and more I want to
Confess to you. Stay with me.

So my grandpa has cancer

My pop is a 85 year old Navy Veteran. He spent his youth in the shipyards building battleships for WWII and Korea. After that he spent over 20 years working in a tollbooth on the Verrazzano Bridge to put my mom and her three siblings through college.

Yesterday I found out he has lung cancer, and they’re giving him months.

For his age, it’s rather impressive he’s gone this long. I’m grateful that he is still as sharp as ever, with the same wise-cracking sense of humor I grew up knowing. I’m grateful I’ll get to spend more time with him. I’m grateful he won’t go through harsh treatments and, hopefully, spend his final days in peace.

I just don’t wanna lose him yet.
