100 little wordsAffecting a lilting accent, she tilted her head and asked "why?"
Such a simple question, but one steeped with such gravitas and longing. Her huge brown eyes longed to know the answer to her simple question, yet there was hesitation there. Did she really want to know? Or was she happy to be kept in the dark just that little bit longer? It wasn't long, but why was the intolerant wait being forced upon her?
And with a sweet smile, the long awaited response came:
"No sweetie. You'll just have to wait until tomorrow morning to open your Christmas presents."
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
