It’s Just Dancing

It's just dancing new adult kyle milligan realkylemilligan.com

Have you ever been in a relationship where one person says, “It’s just dancing?” Get out. I should be working on my niche site right now. Lord knows it could use more traffic. But there is a stupid bimbo at the end of this table who has been bitching for 30 minutes to her mother, […]

Stability

Stability New Adult Romance Author Kyle Milligan realkylemilligan

“Time is like a river, they say. I say everything is a river. Life is a river. There is no stability. Life abides the physics of time, always moving. Life doesn’t stop or have checkpoints to fall back to. An object in motion stays in motion. An object at rest is sinking. Diminishing. You’re either […]

Patience

“Sorry, nothing to report.” Nobody who owns a website ever wants to see that on their activity log. Luckily it isn’t realkylemilligan.com, but an anonymous niche website I have been building. I should be promoting Redheads and Bedspreads, but I’m not. I’m a creator at heart. I don’t want to talk about shit that’s done […]

Relax

I’ve been a bit anxious lately. Chest is tight. Throat is tight. I’ve struggled to catch my breath far too often. I wondered if maybe I was putting on weight but that’s ridiculous; I look fantastic. I sat down to work on some writing and as I opened my laptop screen I tried to take […]

Genesis

I remember the first blog post I ever wrote. It actually wasn’t a blog post, but a diary entry. An entry that never made it to the Internet. It was my 24th birthday. I broke up with my girlfriend a couple months earlier and was trying to learn how to date. I was bad. So […]

Hypergamy – This Is What You Came For Today I was at the gym and I overheard a song I’ve ignored as it played 10,000 times this week. The song was This Is What You Came For by Calvin Harris featuring Rihanna. This time I tuned in to the lyrics. Baby, this is what you […]

The Perfect Woman

Kyle Milligan, realkylemilligan

Her mouth tastes like tar and nicotine. My lip is already starting to swell from her bites. Every kiss is a risk, she threatens to break the skin when she pinches my lower lip in between her teeth. I am too stubborn to make a noise when it hurts and her mandible is capable of piercing […]

I’m Sorry

Kyle Milligan, I'm Sorry, realkylemilligan

“I’m sorry.” “I’ll make it up to you.” I hate these phrases. “I’m sorry:” The expression used when someone thought they would want to do something and then decided they didn’t when the time came. “I’m sorry” is for absence. A baseball game. An awards ceremony. A birthday. A graduation. An entire childhood. An adolescence. […]

Comfort

Kyle Milligan, realkylemilligan

I take comfort in the strangest of things. Things that terrify people, send men running for the hills, choke and sicken regular folks. I take comfort in second hand smoke In the 90’s my family would have holidays at my grandma’s house. The kitchen was for the grown ups, the living room for the kids, and […]

The Friend Zone

She was walking out of my apartment. I had just helped her put together a brand new resume for a job application. On my front step I suggested we hang out again sometime. Maybe something less boring than resume building. “Thank you so much for this,” she said. “Seriously, you’re like the best friend I have.” […]
