Something I'm not sure I am proud of. Maybe I am, I've yet to figure it out. No one else can decide for me, I wsh but it is my inevitable responsibility.

Captains and Kale

Just one night couldn't be so wrong. I'm gonna lose control, I'm gonna go wild. You can never have it back can you? Do I even want it back? Of this I am not so sure. I remember the scent, it's so strong. I remember how the eyes traveled across my body in adoration. Those piercing gray eyes. I never wanted to be adored. I wanted more, I wanted what is told to me everyday. I wake up today and put on my facade like an item of clothing. It's so natural, so right, it is who I am now. Who I have always been. I dream about it when darkness falls, I wake up to it when light streams through my window each morning. It's a memory now. Sometimes a moment becomes a memory the instance its happening. Because its so true and so signifigant. Is my memory my secret? The sky has fallen down on me, but yet I move, I live on. Does my secret comfort me or devour me? I woke up this morning, I have my bagel and hot chocolate. My own thoughts betray me even at this hour. By lunch time I meet that scent once again for the daily lunch as always. When I am finished, those hands travel to mine. The gray eyes look at me with love. I stare back at them out of habit, is it with love I stare back? Or do I stare back to those adoring gray eyes with anguish? Do I have the power to know the difference?
