To call what I am
feeling a ‘crush’ feels inexact. It is not puppy love. It is not new
relationship energy. It is not lust. It is an uncontrollable romantic desire.
It is not grounded in
our friendship or my attraction to her. It is more of an obsession. A desperate
need for her to feel the same way about me. A craving. A pang. A wildness of
the heart that is as frightening as it is pleasant.
It is an unmoored,
unmooring thing, drawing me ever upwards in lazy, undirected arcs almost — almost
— against my will, ever closer to the sun.
Six tales of love.
Six tales of need, of desire, of how to live with the ones you cannot live
without. Sawtooth may be a nothing town in a flyover state, but those that live
there are no less real for it. They bear all the same emotions as anyone else,
have all the same needs.
- Jump - Some folks
were just built to jump. What do you do when that gets to be too much?
- Limerent Object - Dee Kimana, an
ex-seminarian coyote, is in love. Maybe. Perhaps? His constant doubts
plague him, and as he strives to journal his way towards greater
understanding of himself and his emotions, he delves deeper and deeper
into the past.
- Gigs - The gig economy,
while useful for providing some income to those in need, comes with its
own downfalls and dangers, as Winter soon finds.
- Sorting Laundry
weird what you remember from childhood, isn’t it? Almost as weird as what
brings those memories to the surface.
- Morning Of -Surgery and
airports — two places where you give yourself into your trust in
professionals. But where, exactly, does that point lie?
- Of Foxes and
foxes, one vanilla-flavored kiss.
