My solace

The best thing in the world is finding someone you can vibe with.

You don’t have to agree about everything but you understand there will be differences – and it doesn’t become a problem. That’s the best feeling. Knowing you can trust someone that much to talk about anything that runs in your mind, talk about the most random thing like even the way you stir your tea, or things that are bothering you. Even as little as what you had for lunch. There’s no need for mediators or conversation-starters. It’s just you, me and our minds. You don’t have to hold back, you don’t have to put me on a pedestal. I am on the same ground as you. Only we come from different places. Feelings don’t have to come between our way, even. As much as it is tempting to add amour to the equation, I’m loving what we have now. Getting to know you without any distractions and other external factors. It’s you. it’s authentic, it’s rough around the edges, but it’s the best kind of you.

Come talk to me, I’ll be here, ready to listen, ready to engage. I promise I won’t include the mushy stuff and I will remain neutral but keep the conversation going. Keep it real and keep it honest. Don’t leave out any details. Smile or cry when you have to. Put the time aside and the rest of the world. For on,y a moment. It’s just between you and me.

All I Want

I’m not asking a grand declaration of love. I’ve stopped entertaining those thoughts long ago. You see, I have resigned myself to where I am now, hanging by a thin, tenuous thread. I can feel it twisting above me, gently fraying, slowly giving way. I’m not asking for promises or tenure – I just want a hand to reach for at the breaking point.
