Marked

“MOVING ON” IS JUST ABOUT ACTING THE PART.

 

I would never say as much to the people I love, but it’s the truth.

They want to see me doing better.

They want to see me living for more than just my son.

So I let them.

Every day is about putting on a face,

pretending to get over the loss of my husband.

And every day is a lie.

 

UNTIL MOVING ON IS A TEMPTATION THAT CAN’T BE DENIED.

 

I’m not about to claim I’m a genius,

unless we’re talking with a tattoo gun or woman in my hands,

but I’m smart enough to know the beauty serving up my cupcake fix is off limits.

Really, I know.

Too bad the lure of putting a real smile on Kate’s face is so strong.

When she visits Sailor’s Grave Tattoo Parlor,

I can’t help but want to leave my mark.
