I'm watching you sleep.

Not thinking, just watching you.

My mind is still and I am at peace, as are you.

You give me peace.

I'm watching you sleep.

You've left me, you've drifted far away.

You don't even know I'm so close, but I can't get any closer without waking you.

I want so badly to wake you, to bring you back to me, but I don't.

I'm watching you sleep.

And I run my finger lightly along the knuckles of your tightly-balled fist.

How can something this tiny wield so much power?

How does your vulnerability make you so strong?

I'm watching you sleep.

Untouched by the world, momentarily separated from the madness,

By translucent eyelids of gossamer silk.

I'm afraid to even breathe on them.

I'm watching you sleep.

And you are safe, I promise.

I love you with everything I have.

More even, than those to whom you belong.

Warm and fuzzy

Yes, I'm a total sucker for this stuff.

Here goes my tag virginity.

It's true.

It's my first time.

Dyke in Saudi, be gentle with me, please.


I had to think long and hard to come up with my 6 most unspectacularest quirks.

But it turns out I don't know the difference between a quirk that's 'spectacular' and one that's not. So here are mine, one way or the other:

  1. I don't wear jewelry. I hate it with a passion. There're very few things in the world that can make my skin crawl more than the feel of a gold chain. Just writing about it makes me nauseous.
  2. Butterflies are the other thing. They should be eradicated. And then banned from history books. And museums. And ever being mentioned again.
  3. I crack my elbows. They make this reassuring *pop* sound that relaxes me.
  4. I call all dogs 'puppies'. Including police sniffer-dogs that'd make a snack out of me in seconds. (Yes, that nearly happened)
  5. When I'm tired or drunk (or both), a nerve in the middle of my forehead starts to show. Everyone knows about it. It's very annoying.
  6. The second toes on both my feet are eerily long. They look like little penises.

Unlike my other first time, this wasn't so bad :D

I know I'm supposed to tag 6 people, but this is my first tag and I'm not sharing.

SO HA! Bite me.
