In Her Shoes

In Her Shoes

I wonder how it’s like to be loved by you.

To receive “Good Morning Beautiful” texts from you.

To receive “Goodnight Love” texts from you.

To have you hold my hand.

To have you grab me at my waist before I fall.

To have you hug me in theatres.

To have you cuddle me up when nights get cold.

To have you listen to my stories when I have a bad day.

To listen to yours.

To squeeze into your arms when nights get cold.

To lean on your chest in the theatres.

To pull you closer when I’m about to fall.

To hold your hand.

To tell you I miss you before heading to bed.

To tell you you’re the first person I think of when I wake up in the morning.

I wonder how it’s like to love you with all I have.

I wonder what it’s like to be in her shoes.

I Ain’t No Hollaback Girl

I Ain’t No Hollaback Girl

“I don’t know how I’m supposed to pretend

you don’t turn my stomach into
a butterfly mortuary

that they flew around so fast and frantic,
all of them died.

I’m a graveyard of everything I’ve ever said to you.

You grabbed my hand in the Uber
like you had never touched another human being,

Like we’re all electricity
without a panic button.”

Open Letter To The Next Guy I Meet

Open Letter To The Next Guy I Meet

Dear You,

I don’t know when I’ll meet you, or if I have already met you, but there’s so much I need to let you know, before you start what I think is called The Chase.

I am a simple person. I enjoy doing things alone; I enjoy listening to music, reading and writing. I enjoy spending time with people; my family, friends and my dog. I hope you don’t find me boring, and I cannot wait for you to come onboard.

I might start to like you after a few days of talking, just because you’re funny. That might not seem right, but sometimes, or maybe even all the time, my heart works faster than my brain.

And when I meet you for the first time after all that texting, I will be nervous. I might shy away a little, but I promise I will be back to my usual self as long as you say something funny as you usually do.

It will be a huge plus point if you send me back to my doorstep on our first date, but if you don’t, I think a “have you gotten home safe?” will be incredibly amazing. I had a great time, I hope you did too. – And that, will be perfect.

Please do not play games with me. Ask me out when you want to, instead of thinking ‘maybe I should wait a week before I ask her out again’. Do what your heart says, and I will too. Tell me that you’re happy when you are, upset when you are, excited when you are, and I will too. Don’t make us a guessing game.

To You,

If you’re ready, I am too.
