wish you would



These morning cigarettes lend so much clarity, it hurts. When only quiet fills the void, every little thing you hide comes out to play.

I know what we have is different, that his love for me is in a language that escapes words. He looks at me and sees me. He kisses me and I’m home. He holds me until the early morning. And though I often wake up without him, that doesn’t mean he loves me any less.

I know he doesn’t need to say it. But every now and then, I can’t help but wish that he would.

This and other 100-word stories in Project 0.1.

  1. Can it be said too much? Someone once told me that I said it too much. Never quite understood that.

  5. Gives me chills! Love this days are a mere promise of yes for today and an I don't know about tomorrow. We all take a chance and sometimes fallen in-love is just a fashion of fairy tales. Who knows anyway?
