Pillow Talk



"I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep.  Not fuck, like in those movies.  Not even have sex.  Just sleep together, in the most innocent sense of the phrase.  But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating.  So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk,  thinking that if people were rain,  I was drizzle and she was hurricane."

  8. The last line ... "i was drizzle and she was hurricane" ... it's such an insanely beautiful phrase. I don't know what, but just something about it is so poetic and...perfect.

    Thank you for your wonderful comment on my blog. Right now, I've been having too many emotions. And yes, the heart does deceive. In fact, one of my my favorite quotations ever is "The heart is deceitful, above all things." I believe that 100 million%. Especially now.

    Anyway, just wanted to thank you for stopping by. I can't wait to read more from you. =)
