I want

this is what i want to do:

i want to run you a bath and surround it with candles and and pour sweet smelling oils into it.
i want to wash your hair and back and whisper sweet stories in the dark to you.
i want to show you the stars and constellations and tell you their names.
i want to name one after you.
i want to name them all after you.
i want to paint you, and sculpt you, and i want to scribble filthy words all over your naked body with a thick, red, magic marker.
i want to tickle you and hear you giggle – sometimes i think simply the sound of your laughter would be enough to make me come.
i want to cook for you and i want to sing and dance for you, and with you.
i want to grow things for you.
i want to fight for you.
i want to hurt for you and would happily die for you.
i want to climb mountains, swim entire oceans, and i want to slay dragons for you.
i want to make you stuff, and i want to weep at your beauty.
i want to make you happy, and safe, and warm.

and… i want to do all these things every single day.

        If it has the wonderful effect of putting me to sleep and giving me amazing dreams, then yes very intoxicating. With the way this sounded to me, there’s a very good chance it might do those things. I’m easily seduced by words.

        • maybe its just us writers, but i find words sexier than almost anything else – i have fallen in love with your foot by the way πŸ™‚

            Words are incredibly sexy! Being able convey so much with so few words gets me every time.

            My foot? Perhaps it’s the green flip flops? They are adorable.

            • that must be it – although, i have to say that the only way i can write well is when i deny myself that kind of physical pleasure (if you know what i mean) and after a week or two even a flip flop will do it for me.

              sorry. TMI?

    • Thanks Pete, if only, but I fear she does not exist.

      12.02.19 at 10.46

      • No she absolutely does and one day you’ll be nothing but enamored (is how I see it).
