At this moment, the sky is a pale shade of blue and the sun is hiding its yellow face behind the most beautiful clouds.
There is a breeze caressing my body. The same breeze that presses against each branch and dances with each tree. A chorus of leaves.
I’m thinking of the day we spent at the park sharing a hammock. The way our bodies came together in a quiet embrace. We watched the sun set.
Suspended together like that, we exchanged gentle kisses, locked fingers, held hands, whispered secrets, shared our dreams.
On near perfect days like today, I close my eyes and go back there. I think of you in my arms, in that hammock. I think of the sun set, and your lips.
I feel the breeze caressi...
Thank you for making the decision to stay away and for keeping it.
The only magic I could foresee in your return would've been a vanishing act sometime in the future.
I'm glad we avoided all that pain.
I have a sickness for you, and the only cure for it is you.
Right now, I miss you like only a crazy person could, and I’m not ashamed to admit it.
You’ve starved out the devils and the rest of me is left with a hunger for you.
If you come back, I will love you
sweeter, and simpler, and lighter.
If you come back, I will be better.
If you come back...
- a quiet dinner table
- a bed too big for one
- one tooth brush in the medicine cabinet
- one half of the closet full
- one window in an almost empty room
- a faint echo of good morning and good night
- an empty inbox and no text messages
- one leg and one foot on the ground
- an outstretched hand reaching for nothing
- one side of an argument
- the remaining warmth from dying embers that burned all night
- your face in my dreams on rewind
- one minute, one hour, one day at a time
learning to speak Spanish
my tongue in your mouth
you introduce me to vallenato
and teach me to dance
cumbia, salsa, a little merengue
you brush your cheek against mine and whisper in my ear: te quiero
we share empanadas, ajiaco, arepas
you talk about your family, your country, your culture
I see it all through your eyes
you kiss me gently
and ask me if I’m happy
I just smile
I want so much to tell you
I love you
but right now I’m only learning
learning to speak your language
and I still don’t know how
