Nothing 8: My Diamond

You give me a warm feeling inside whenever I think about you. And it’s all the time now. You always make me feel young and pretty and immature and mature and hopeful. You melt my heart. I have never felt like that with anyone. You are a happy change. You are an amazing person. With…

Nothing 7

Returning home. After you yourself have changed but nothing and no one else has. The longer spent home, the more the recent experiences slip into a dream-like state, and they are no longer clear, but symbols. The old pains come back.

Today is your birthday. I hope you are happy. I hope you have found your peace. I was never able to tell you how much you meant to me: You are the only person I’ve ever met that made me feel like I wasn’t all alone in this world. I thank you for that. So…

Nothing 4

I know you like my body. My waist is small enough for your hands to wrap around and touch your fingers. My thighs, hips, and ass are big enough to shake the world with your poundings. My chest just enough to be cupped by your strong, firm hands. I don’t mind showing my body to…
