My birthday was on the seventh of this month, which was a Monday. It sucked that my twenty-first was on a Monday, but because it was on a less than ideal day, my birthday wasn’t just a day, but a birthday week!
I woke up Monday ready to slay the world. I’ve been watching Arrow lately (it’s excellent if you haven’t checked it out) and I was particularly entranced by Helena. She was the mob leader’s daughter and was bad to the bone as well as wealthy. So my birthday look was inspired by her.
she grabs me by my waist and kisses me
i want her so bad i feel dizzy
but i’m sorry, my phone keeps going off
i must answer it, i am scared to get caught
her kisses down my neck are distracting
as i dig in my purse, my phone i’m extracting
i must answer it
i must break away from this kiss
before the phone call i miss….
i push her away and answer my phone
my mom is on the other end, wondering when i’m coming home
“the mall has closed two hours ago
“why are you still out, are you alone?”
with a heavy sigh
“no, i am with a friend
“my coworker, jess
“remember i mentioned her…”
she replies, “sure i guess”
she tells me to come home soon
“it’s getting late, you have school tomorrow, you should be asleep in your room”
i hang up, and adjust my clothes
i tell jess that i have to go home
and then she turns up the music and goes
i sit in the passenger seat
thinking about all the lies i’ve hissed through my teeth
i feel lost again, i want to be found

I don’t know why I never published this…I hope you enjoyed it 🙂
the way you kiss me-
i feel alive
your lips passionately mash against mine
and your fingernails drag lines
down my shoulders
the way you kiss me-
i just might die
your tongue probes my mouth
begging you to be completely mine

My girlfriend and I had our first date as girlfriends last Friday, March 14th. We were supposed to have that date on March 7th, but instead I spent that day with her and a bunch of our friends. March 6th was the day that I had been yelled at for dating her…I didn’t sleep much that night. My girlfriend stayed up with me and texted me, trying to console me. She’s been amazing and patient.
Anyway, last Friday we went on our date. I told my parents I was hanging out with my best friend. In reality, Janice* took me to an Italian restaurant but the restaurant side was closed so we just got pizza and we ran into all of her old teachers and my current accounting teacher there. Then she took me to her house, I briefly met her dad then was led to her room. She shares a room with her twin sister.
There was nowhere to sit except for the bed, so I opted for the floor, suddenly feeling very nervous. I hadn’t been alone with my girlfriend for more than two hours for the past month…and the last time we hung out alone for more than two hours, we weren’t officially girlfriends. As of that Friday, we have been girlfriends for two weeks and a day.
Janice teased me for looking so uncomfortable, especially when she deemed it a good idea to change her shirt randomly. I looked at the wall, my throat constricting. Then we decided to put on Perks of Being A Wallflower. I had lent her the book awhile ago and she had just finished it, so we were going to watch the movie. She suggested I sit on her bed so I nervously took off my shoes and flopped myself down on her tiny twin-size bed.
