Love is love is love…


non fiction

Are you to see me here?

I wonder. I hope so to see you. To really see you. And I hope for you to really see me. Maybe you already have. All this time. Or maybe not. I do not have any idea. I hope sometimes, well I suppose I know, that others have minds similar, but I wonder if you do. Maybe it is an ideal I am holding on to, I want so much. I want freedom so badly. It sounds selfish of me when I am afforded so much “freedom” already. But the poor are not free. The rich are not free. Money slaves us all. Society, politics. There is a film over every single person’s’ eyes. I guess money is not the only thing keeping us behind bars. I don’t know how to find my freedom. I hope to learn before it is too late.

Again. I hope for you to really see me. I wonder if you already do.

I want to find freedom, not just for myself, but for everyone.

Monday Morning.

I  was sitting on my bed, waiting for the message that would signal what my tasks were for the day. My wife lay behind me, still sleeping. She was snoring softly, something she is embarrassed by, but I find it cute.

The sun had not risen yet, but the morning was already warm and sticky. People think living here is a vacation, but most days it is like you are walking through soup. Hot and wet.

I was still waiting when I heard her stir behind me. I felt arms wrap around my waist, and her cheek pressed against my back.

“Has he told you where you are going today?” She asked in a groggy voice.

“Not yet, I am still waiting.”

“Oh, he is such a dick.” She said, kissing the middle of my back. Such a way with words.

My phone buzzed in my hands. It was him.

“Finally.” She said. “Where are you off to today?”

I read the message.

“Fuck.” I started. “I’m not sure.”

The messages were always so vague.
