Everyone's favorite, right? Here are some overly romantic stories of the men that were a part of my life, some were good, but most were not. We love and we learn, eh?

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind II

Freckles of sepia sand

seaglass eyes

a curious tongue that sparks

after kissing him

when I open my eyes,

a haze of amethyst

is all I see


I've let what you've written sink into my skin. Your words brought me to my knees. I was so scared of you. So scared of us. Something so feral and ethereal about our connection. Like I took a bite of an electric tangerine and it infused my whole being with beams of desire. Someone once wrote that as soon as you question something you shoot the mysteriousness right out of it. That you do it by second guessing. I believe that Oscar Wilde wrote when Basil saw Dorian Gray 'think' for the first time, that beauty escaped as soon as his face became contorted with any emotion like worry or deep thought.

I miss your southern infused voice that flows with the cadence of water being drawn from a well. I miss that heavy look that drapes across your cloudy eyes when you are mad. I miss how you put your cigarettes in your shoes outside your door, and how you would crawl into my bed after we fought about nothing either one of us could remember. I miss that melted look in your eyes when we are passionately kissing, like some painted your irises with watercolor and stars. And I miss the most when you would whisper into my ear, how it went straight to my soul, like something I've never felt before. Like we knew each other in a different life, and my heart recognized you.
