Falling in love doesn’t have to be intense to be real. Life isn’t a movie. It’s all so confusing sometimes.

In The Moment

In the moment

It all feels blank

Not extremes

The fantasy

Or the fury

The word that comes to mind


When I look at you

I’m unsure

My emotions flow

Like a river

Between feeling drawn to

And drawn away

I feel a spark

Like a phantom flair

When I catch the little things

Like the hairs on your knuckles

Or the slope of your profile

And it’s almost something

Like excitement

But it dies quickly

Like fire without oxygen

It’s my brain that smothers it


You say I do it often

I say not enough

It’s that river of uncertainty

That keeps the flames at bay

I can’t feel you

I can’t feel the moment

I think it’s pleasant

It doesn’t hurt

But shouldn’t it?

Even the slightest bit?

And then you reach for me

And our noses touch

That first kiss

Nervous and unfamiliar

That blooms into more

It feels good

Sort of

I get carried away

And I don’t want it to end

Because it’s comfortable

And uncomfortable

Somewhere between

And it’s new

For the both of us

I guess that’s called excitement

You taste like nothing

You feel like nothing

You smell like nothing

But I’m ok with it

And when it ends

Is when it starts

When we drive our separate ways

The clock begins to tick

And the longer it ticks

The more I feel

And I suddenly crave

I want you

To touch me

I want to be ravaged

I am desperate

That distance between us

Is like flint

It tinges my memories with flame

The flame I didn’t feel

In the moment
