I’m as Shallow as you are Deep

Imagine for a moment

I am not me.
You are not you.
We are not us.
This is not what this is.

I just want you to imagine it.
I’d love to know your thoughts on it.
I’d never ask.
I don’t really want to know.
That’s just something I said.

But just imagine.

Maybe only one of those things is true. Maybe more.
What do you envision?
What do you see?
Is anything different?
Or is it all just the same?

Even in parallel universes, faraway worlds, lands that time forgot

Are we destined to be this?
Are we destined to be us?
Are you always you?
Am I forever me?

Imagine we’re not.
What could it be?
What could it have been?
What was it almost?

What ripple did the most damage?
What stone changed everything?

If I had done this.
If you had said that.
If we had been… more. than. us.

Just imagine.

I Am Oblivion Made Real

My skin is alive. I need the feel of you moving against me to sustain it. My eyes are closed and I imagine your lips everywhere. My thighs part. Sense memory. I need no invitation. My back bows, curves. My body rocks, undulates, vibrates. My hair falls forward to hide my face. I am too naked there. Don’t look… don’t look.

I want your voice in my ear. Your lips at my neck. I want you to hear me moan. I want you to hear me struggle. I want you to know how much this body needs you. How well it responds to the need of you. Appreciate me. Coo. Coax. Praise. Tell me. I want to know you want me. I want to make you want me. My skin tingles. Alive with 1000 promises yet to be fulfilled and 1 million memories to recall… to replay.

There will always be you, here, beating in my breast, being wanted, making me wanton, even when you are not here.

Lessons in Love from 1962

Sir shared this with me, and I found that I quite enjoyed it, and listened to all 12 tracks in a row. And may or may not be listening all over again. It’s delightfully vintage and delightfully charming and cultured and interesting. There are words that hit me emotionally, which may be strange to some. There are some, perhaps, outdated ideas that some may rail against, but I find that overall, it’s more than worth giving a listen to.

The speaker is Helen Gurley Brown, most famous for Sex and the Single Girl, a book that was revolutionary in its time. She was also the Editor in Chief of Cosmopolitan magazine for over 30 years. The line that sticks with me the most is: “Never, Never cheat on her with anyone but your wife.” From How to Have an Affair and Live Happily.
