if you could just dare

to fuck the art in me.

the kind of sex

that would put

us both on fire.

the part where you

never leave in

the morning. i

disappoint you

all the time,

with my past,

my present,

my unstable future.

if you could just dare

to love me,

none of it would even matter.

that was inspire by a prompt on Instagram – sometimes all I need is a word that gets the thoughts boiling. thanks so much 🙂 you can interpret them any way you want Hamlet! lol


Can’t get over those provactive first lines….so powerful on a couple of levels…..I don’t usually speak this way, but sticking with your language, your image calls to mind one time when I fucked a woman because she had said something so intelligent and insightful, I just had to have her….

Good thing I wasn’t reading this yesterday when I was in the Bath and Body Works store packed with women yesterday trying to find a friend’s body lotion she had written about. She was texting and I was showing the saleswomen what I wanted to savor, needless to say, the two salesladies had no experience with Mutes or much with Men shopping for a much younger woman. It was soooooooooooooooooo uncomfortable for them. Oh well, old not Dead ᕙ(💓▿💓)ᕗ (♥👅♥)

I don’t know who was more uncomfortable, the saleswomen or the women customers. I was having fun trying out different aromas and washing my hands so I could try more. Maybe I was having too much fun being the center of attention. ᕙ(💓▿💓)ᕗ Hopefully none of them are in my parish, Sunday Mass might be “interesting.” hahaha

Sometimes I like watching peoples’ faces and changes when they think I’m not looking, I love mirrors and dark glasses)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
I stored pre recorded messages for my phone for emergencies, but every now and then I just play them to see the reactions of others who aren’t sure if I’m really mute or not
maybe the little rebel streak in me? (¬‿¬)(¬‿¬)(¬‿¬)
