So I used to be a goth in high school in case any of you didn’t know. Revisiting that part of my life tonight—only with alcohol. Adult goths and adult goth clubs/bars, ftw.

The shutter clicked, but the film did not go round
The shutter clicked, but the film did not go round
I touch these strings but cannot touch the sound

Take a train to a bus and then into the air
Take a train to a bus and then into the air
If I had wings, I’d follow you up there

Girl, you know I hate to see you go
I hate to see you go
But the sunlight follows you right down the road

Just the thought of you makes me want to cry
Just the thought of you makes me want to cry
This deep well of tears has just run dry 

You showed me just how easy love could be
You showed me just how silly love could be
But everything you showed me gracefully

Everyone’s gotta leave their love sometime
Everyone’s gotta leave their love sometime
If not now, then at the end of your lifetime

You’ll be waiting by my bed, I know
You’ll be waiting by my bed, I know 
And your last little words will be “I love you so”

One of the best feelings in the world is having sex with someone who loves you—or at least really cares about you. And I don’t mean someone YOU love. I’m talking about someone who loves YOU. A past journalism professor of mine used to always emphasize that point, saying someone had to love you back in order to find happiness. I guess that was also her way of telling us not to settle for less.

Anyway, it truly is a wonderful feeling to connect with someone emotionally and know they do, too. There is not a single thing more special than someone taking the time to make you feel amazing, beautiful and happy in bed and, when the rush is over, still want to cuddle up beside you and make you believe, if only for a moment, that they may never let go.

It’s just something in the way they touch you where you can feel connected on so many levels with just a gentle brush on the arm or by the way the heat of your bodies transfers between you two. It’s being able to lie contentedly next to each other, doing nothing but basking in each other’s presence and everything that comes with it—their hair, their hands, their smell, their feet, their soft palms. And it’s knowing that even though this is something all lovers can do, this actually means something. There is clear, recognizable, almost audible, love with the two of you at that very moment. It’s being so in love with this love that even when time is telling you both that they have to leave, they keep saying “another 10 minutes. I don’t want to go.” And every time they get up to leave you, their hand accidentally graces your hair, your face or your back and they just can’t help but hold you and kiss you more and more until they are definitely late for whatever errand they have. But it doesn’t matter because you’re more important to them than the entire world outside your window. It’s knowing that there’s so much more just outside and there is nowhere your partner would rather be. They need nothing else but you, even if it affects everything else they have in their lives.

Perhaps one of the most beautiful things of it all is being so openly vulnerable in their presence and knowing—feeling—that they would never betray this trust you gave them. After all, you are naked and sleeping, two of the weakest states you could find yourself in, but you know they love you enough so that you can let them in—that they will share in your position and lie next to you in just the same fashion. Sometimes you wonder if you’re lying there disrobed in peaceful silence that maybe you should be more engaging. Maybe your partner wants more sex or more of a thrill. So you lift yourself up ever so slightly, graze their cheeks and lips with kisses, to which they respond by holding you tighter, burying their face in you. They don’t want more pleasure. They want more of you. You being you is enough. You are enough. It’s not a one-way street anymore like it’s been so many times. You can give and they will always give back in ways that make you a happier, better person.
