And then she asked me what I want
And I realized I didn’t know.
Instinctively, I thought sex
Because, well, I did.
But as I looked at her I realized that wasn’t it.
It was more than that.
I want love, I thought.
I want to lose myself in her completely.
And then before I knew what was happening,
I was speaking
Love, I said.
And she looked at me.
Is that confusion in her eyes? Pity?
I was sure I had said too much
Played my hand too soon.
It was just a fraction of a second
But in that moment
I wished for death.
Anything to end my humiliation.
But before my prayer could be answered
Her lips found mine.
I suddenly felt like I could have everything I ever wanted
I knew exactly the answer to her question.
You, I said.
I want you.
recently came across RegularJOE's RECord "Who are you?" and I was really moved by one of his answers. So I decided to do a lil remix and flesh it out a bit.....
here's the original question:
11. What are you craving right now?
sex, I mean, love, I mean, death, I mean, you
You left me in the stillness of a frozen afternoon
Drowning in the silence that remained
Alone with my thoughts
And your lingering scent
Each intake of breath
Of a happier time
Before mistakes had been made
Before cruel words had been spoken
Before this white blanket covered the ground
And mocked me with its coldness
A reflection of my heart
And the warmth of a love
I could barely remember
This was inspired by a photo of a snow-covered yard I saw on Instagram with the caption "struck by the stillness of a frozen afternoon"
I look into the mirror
And I see a stranger's eyes
I came for my reflection
But instead I just find lies
My dear friend Sleep
Comes knocking at my door
Begging to come in.
I love him dearly, and my heart breaks as daylight forces me to turn him away.
"Wait for me," I plead.
But when the sun has finally set
And I am ready for our rendezvous
I look for him everywhere
And he is nowhere to be found.
just came across this tiny illustration from Urbanation and absolutely fell in love with it. so I wrote a lil tiny story for it. hope you enjoy.
My heart, it sings of broken dreams, and of our love's demise
Its words don't come out through my lips, but flow straight from my eyes.
