I like the stubble on your jaw
and your broken one-too-many-times nose.
I like how good you are at telling stories.
I like how your arms feel wrapped around me
and when you pull me into your chest.
I like that you’re ticklish.
I like having you on my mind
I like that I get to call you mine.
You’ve come to know, every year I do a theme series!
2017 Love Fest
2019 Poet Interviews
and now here we are with
2020 – All the Feels Playlists!
Each month will cover a different aspect of love or love lost such as: break up, steamy desire, jealousy, and forever love. I’ll put together a playlist of about 7 songs that fit the theme.
Who hasn’t made a playlist as they’ve gone through a break up?!
I’d love to hear what type of playlists you are all looking forward to! Any suggestions are welcome!
It’s not that I don’t have anything to write
It’s just that I want to write about you
and you keep me from my muse.
You are much more than a muse
and much more than being anything of mine.
That doesn’t stop me from wanting to run my hands through your soft hair
I go to bed dreaming about that hair.
how soft it is, how long you let it grow,
you stroking it mindlessly while you talk,
me playing with the ends in the car while you drive,
wet and sticky against the nape of your neck with the sheets falling to the floor.
I lose my mind thinking of nothing else but that hair.
