I'm fighting for us.

Tuesday, 11 March 2014

I want us.

I want you and me and I want forever. I want to be able to kiss you whenever I want. I want to walk down the street holding your hand because you’re mine. I want to sweep the stray strands of hair out of your face when you’re concentrating.

I want you. I want all of you.

I want you when you’re angry and you’d rather push me off a cliff than push me into bed. I want you when you’re sad and you need a hug and a hot chocolate. I want you at your worst when you let me hold you all night long because you can’t stop crying.

I don’t care how much baggage or how much shit you throw my way. I want you and me and I want forever.

You won’t drive me away. You can't. I’m fighting for you. I’m fighting for us.

Can you hear me?

Writing Prompt: Lost
Lost. Broken. Help. Someone.

I can’t think. Breathe. The pressure halts me, roots me to the spot as I watch the world trail by. I reach out but there’s no one in a sea of bodies. I’m floundering. There’s nothing to ground me but my feet are like bricks to the ground. I jitter and shake. A mess. I’m a mess. Can you hear me?

Excuse me.

Excuse me!

Can you hear me? Please. He just keeps walking. No one stops. No one spares a glance. I try to move but I’m stuck. Frozen in place. Trapped within my own sick mind. I want to get out. Will no one listen to my pleas? Help me.

Top Ten Popular Authors I've Never Read
A weekly meme from 
The Broke and the Bookish

These authors are going to be from a range of different genres because I absolutely loathe the idea of constantly reading one genre. It's reductive, repetitive and mundane.

1. Michael Connelly
I have every single one of his books on my iPad I just need to find time to read them.

2. Maggie Stiefvater
I literally have zero interest to read any of her novels

3. John Grisham
King of the courtroom! Must, must, MUST get round to reading his books. The Racketeer is sitting on my shelf impatient with the desire to be opened.

4. Neil Gaiman
My signed copy of American Gods is taunting me.

5. Fyoder Dostoyevsky
Everyone should read Russian literature at least once in their lifetime. The Brothers Karamozov has been on my to-read list for far too long (along with a few other of his titles).

6. J. R. Ward
Need to get round to reading The Black Dagger Brotherhood series at some point.

7. Ian Fleming
I really, really, really need to read the Bond books. I feel disgusted with myself that I haven't already.

8. Hugh Laurie
Hugh Laurie... the actor? The very same. I've had a copy of The Gun Seller for 3/4 years and it needs to be read.

9. Michael Grant
Do I even want to read the Gone series? I don't know. Probably not. We'll see.

10. Stephen King
The fact that I've only read one measley short story of his and none of his novels is quite disgraceful in my opinion. 11.23.63 is one novel in particular that I need to read as well as Mr. Mercedes when that comes out later this year.

aspiring author attempting world domination with a bit o' magic and some kickass moves.
