this photo makes me feel like someone traveled to an alternate dimension and brought back something that shouldnt exist
black people at work
The sunlight wakes you.
Your face is covered with questions.
Slowly, your eyes begin to sort through the morning grog.
They begin to realize.
I am the man you want to spend the rest of your life with.
I am the man who brought you to bed and kept you warm.
I am not a stranger to you.
You see me as a sign of safety.
Your eyes begin to relax, followed by your cheeks, then your lips.
The rest of you begins to take over, moving and squirming about under the blanket.
First legs, kicking to be free from the blanket
Than arms, reaching out to pull me impossibly closer.
You whine as if to call me to you
To beckon me and tell me that you need me without words.
I too feel the need.
I too reach out for you.
I too begin to realize.
You are the woman I want to spend the rest of my life with.
You are the woman who takes my shoes off before bed when I simply cannot.
You are not a stranger to me.
We keep each other safe.
There’s an abundance of bad things happening right now, and it’s hard not to be sucked into that black hole of sadness, so let’s have a puppy party shall we.
Because, let’s face it, dogs never grow up.
ADDED BONUS, PUPS IN MOTION!!!
