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

A reminder

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

Ever existed

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

Relentless.

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.
