Chapter 32 - After The Movies==========
This is a gay story. No ifs, ands or buts about it. Don't like, don't read.
I felt a little reluctant to take my hand out of his, but as the lights came back on, it was a reflex that I didn't interrupt. I reached into my coat pocket and checked my phone. No missed calls or texts, but it did tell me that it was almost eleven pm. We had been sitting in the dark for almost three hours.
“That was a long movie,” I said out loud.
“Really?” Luke asked. “It didn't seem that long,” he added on as he started to stand. I looked up at him as he stretched.
“It's was almost three hours long,” I explained as I watched him extend his arms up over head.
“That would explain why I'm feeling a little tired,” he confessed. He then turned to look down at me. “So where are you staying tonight?” he asked. I looked down at my phone again and stared at it for a few seconds before looking back up into his face.
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
