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.

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.
