I’d love to be a highly intelligent, composed woman who chooses her words perfectly, who speaks in riddles and mysteries, who is respected and admired by everyone she meets but the truth is I’m a bisexual chaos of a dumbass whose brain is controlled by a gay frog on crack and who goes bonkers every time a pretty lady appears

Heavy eyes looking back at me

My soft lips against her warm cheek

Hair blown around like a tumbleweed

A soft hand caresses down the side of her body

Her heavy lids start to droop

She rolls away from me expectedly

A soft i love you whispered out

A slowed elongated one in exchange

One last kiss to the tip of her button nose

And I tuck her into my chest

As sleep overcomes me all I can think are good things

And the new day to come.

“As well rose-armed Aurora one day for love it is said took Tithonus to the ends of the earth in her chariot, because he was young and beautiful, but nonetheless in time hoary old age took hold of him, though immoral wife he had attained.”
