Love me like comfort food Gravy on your mashed potatoes Shrimp with your grits Chicken in your soup Leftover spaghetti and warm garlic bread   Love me like a crack addiction

Like potato chips after…

There are words there

From the moment our lips touched
I knew there were words there
I was prepared for my unexpected decision
to break rules set by the
stick-in-the-mud other half of my personality
Love keeping people on their toes
But I wasn’t prepared for the
split second…

The Reason

Let me be the reason behind your smile.

The random text message after a crazy commute.

The note in your coat pocket describing/encouraging your world domination.

The mental picture that causes the edges of your lips to stand at attention.

The surprise…

Tell them…

Tell them… That the sun rises in their smile and sets in their eyes… That they run through your mind like a child at recess… That their touch lights a fire and you can’t find any water… That the jade case holding your heart is open… Tell them… That they…

Letter to a poet (from 2012)

http://wp.me/s2INPI-117

Dear Madame Poet,

Please stop fucking me with your words.

Your un-lubed clarity of the inside of my soul leaves me shivering.

Quivering in anticipation of the next few syllables

That you throw inside of me

Causing me to explode

Unlike any man ever could

Mission Aborted…

I thought that having people to encourage me and push me beyond my comfort zone would help.  I just wanted to get up the nerve to tell someone that I really like them, even if friends was all it would ever be… because I am not sure I know how to be more than that.

However, 

I experienced a mild panic attack. Just thinking about clothes.

So the entire mission needs to be aborted.

I don’t know if I can survive those attacks again. I just got myself to the point where I could control them before they happened and this one, mild as it was, punched me in my fucking throat.

My feelings are on high. 

Too high.

Mission aborted.

Is it crazy…

Is it crazy that life being too short is EXACTLY the reason I have no intentions on telling my crush that they are the object of my affection?

I mean seriously, the argument could be made saying that I have nothing to lose. However, I see that there is so much to lose. Making things awkward could just kill any hope at a potential friendship which is really all I am equipped to deal with in the first place. You can never be too sure who can appreciate the idea of a crush and not make it out to be the end of the world or the beginning of forever. 

I am leaning heavily towards letting nature take its course. If it is meant to be there isn’t a damn thing I can do to stop it from happening. I am not planning on fighting it. I simply don’t want to make the mistake of skipping steps.

Does that make any sense?
