My motivation is a secret, but maybe not-so-secret to you. Perhaps you can tell that my body breathes a sigh of relief when you walk into view. I wanna be ready, I wanna look good. I want your quiet, sly attention. I want people to think, “wow, they’d be cute,” in case we ever met… Continue reading Motivation
What’s it mean that I immediately wished for more of you?
I’ve been up all night already and only now are you settling into my mind. Unusual. Where have you been, love? I’m sure you’re asleep. You’re resting up for another day, another end to another week. You’ll stand up tomorrow and I will eventually cross your mind. Something will remind you that I belong there.… Continue reading Awake together, alone together

I was right about the writing. Penning words for you has proven complicated. The more I pour out, the more they build up. Soon we’ll have a situation on our hands, though I wonder if there’s already one in your mind. Have you noticed my battle of wills playing out in your shadow lately? Have… Continue reading Situation
When the quiet turns to electricity after everyone’s peeled away, what’ll I do? When it’s just me and you and we’re desperate for the sparks to short out on their own, what do we do? I can feel it building. Think hurricane, think earthquake. Big and chaotic and… life-changing. We hide it well. So well… Continue reading Think hurricane, think earthquake
The slowest getting-to-know-you phase in the world. I suppose it’s because we’re so quiet. Not a lot to say, and no pressure to fill the space with noise. No nervous chatter, no small talk or bullshit. So it’s slow, yes, but it’s been exactly what I’ve always hoped for.
