High

Every Tuesday is like the come down. I can’t find anything good there as I lose the feeling of the weekend, of the boy, of the love. I find myself wishing to be napping and sleeping with him. His arms wrapped around me, covered in sheets, heavy sleep induced breathing. Each week I count the days, count the hours to when I can find myself there again in the sweltering that my weekends have become. Things should be easier, I shouldn’t put myself in these long distance situations but each year, each semester, there I am running into open arms so far away where I don’t have to think, where everything is done for me, where my hand is held and all I have to do is smile. Too easy but perfect. Lost and coming down I find my Tuesdays, lost and coming down off the drug that is love or the build up to love and as Thursday approaches my high once again ignites.

There is this old Kris Kristofferson song called Sunday Morning Coming Down.....not really the same thing but the end feeling seems to be the same.

I no longer live for things that are going to happen I live for things that happen as they happen ....no longer livng for the weekend. ;)

Life is daily, but your poetic writing almost makes it worth it....

Cooper, I agree again. Sometimes I want to give advice but I just end up reading out loud.
