Hola my ink dwellers, old and new,
This is an extension of the Love chapter in MJTP, the rancid sugar left out of my upcoming series of chapbooks, “T.O. Love Azúcar”, and the aftertaste of Refined, Purified Sugar... I am now 28 and I have experienced many things, specifically for this, I’ve kissed a lot of toads (no offense to the animal, but frogs would have been too nice). I’m still kissing frogs. Shhh... Don’t tell him, but over the past year, I think I finally I found “the puzzle piece to my soul.” I’ll patiently wait for him to realize it.
It is an autobiography of a “sidepiece” or “the other woman” and the things she wish she had time to say. It is about the feelings the man involved conveniently wants to ignore. It shows her a process to move on and how to develop a new appreciation for her worth as a woman.
To my young readers, “Idilios De Dulce De Leche” is still in the works. My comic book, “4A: The Audacious Adventures of Azúcar y Adobo” has taken over. I am pretty sure you’ll be happy with that work of art. I am still writing “Jerk Chicken y Jamón” so life tips are on their way.
To my Soldiers and Servants of God, “He Spoke” is currently being written. If you would like to contribute with your favorite Bible Verses do so via email, twitter or Facebook.
Remember, love is a never-ending circle that grows with each passing year. You have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince/princess, or as I like to say, “the puzzle piece to your soul”. There is a soulmate for everyone.

Why “Sanctifications” ?
The Definition of Sanctification
Sanctification is the process of becoming closer and committed to God after ridding yourself of your old self and claiming yourself as a new person in Christ. To be clear, I am not calling him a god. I am just identifying with the commitment and the dedication one makes within the process to become a new and better person.
Why “Sidepiece Sanctifications”?
I chose Sidepiece Sanctifications as the title because it was a process for me to become a dignified sidepiece in his life. I also had a process of falling in love with him in the process that made all the things we did together to me “holy”. I also went through a therapeutic cleansing process in order to “rid myself” of his hold on me. Finally the last process was me realizing and reclaiming both my worth as a woman and my sexuality as a Christian woman.
I felt like I was different than any other woman he associated with. He also told me I was different than any friend he ever had. He treated me differently than other women he was with in my presence. He tended to ignore the women he brought with him and focus all attention and flirtation toward me. This happened so much I would get dirty looks from his “plus 1” ’s.

I’ve kissed a lot of toads
Frogs would have been too nice
I’m still kissing frogs
I haven’t found the puzzle piece to my soul yet
This is the no holds barred truth
Unbeforeseen and publicized autobiography of a sidepiece
These are feelings toads care nothing about
These are experiences that scar hearts
These are times you wished you weren’t a “ride or die” chick
These are times wasted and charred you can’t get back
Because the heart wants what the heart wants
These are moments you try to break free and can’t
Because you are shackled or
Have given in to a serious case of learned helplessness
These are days Freud, Jung, Gestalt and Dr. Sue dread;
When your emotions take control
And there is not even a shred or slither
Of superego to save yourself
These are moments described in “Eat, Pray, Love”
As your heart fusing with your brain
This is an autobiography of a “sidepiece”
“The other woman”
These are feelings the man involved
Conveniently wants to ignore
This shows her a process to move on
This journey leads to an appreciation for her worth
As a woman
Dean R Boic: Awesome read! really like the use of profanity and well slang words that are used, because as we all know, and all should know, that is exactly how people speak in the real world, and if they don't speak it, it's how they think it. Huge fan of the 'no-holds-barred' writing style, and if I'm to po...
Akusekai: There is barely anything to pick about this piece of work. It delve into a very deep emotional turmoil that a lot of people are facing nowadays with relationship and how truly fragile it is. At first I thought that the story might end with a bad ending with the constant reflections. But when I wa...
crissy: Awesome work. The characters are so beautifully flawed and easy to relate to. The protagonist Bethany Hill is a woman that I would definitely want to meet in real life. The author has managed to make me visualize the story like a movie. The two time frames of past and present are also so beautifu...
