With the smartphone and the ability to instantly zap words and feelings to anyone half way around the world, inflection and inference are often left by the wayside. As such, words tend to be taken at face value, unless otherwise affected by factors like waiting time or sentence length.
What I’m worried about is whether or not I’m properly understood, because in between all those 1’s and 0’s the meaning gets lost.
When you say you’re getting into the shower and I reply “I’d love to join you,” I don’t necessarily mean I want you pressed to the wall with your legs wrapped around me and your teeth tugging at my lip. I mean that I want to be the song you’re singing as you scrub down, something light and comforting, something always on your mind.
When I say “I want you in my bed,” I’m not always implying that I want you tangled in my sheets, with your fingers in my hair and my fingers in… I just mean that I’ve had a hard day, that my muscles ache, and I want nothing more than to lay beside you. Sometimes I just want to fade away to the sound of the ceiling fan with your hair softly tickling my face.
When I say “I’m hot for you,” I’m not just trying to say that you make me throb and ache, that I feel like an animal. I’m talking about fire, a fire we both lit that I can’t stand to ignore. It’s cold outside, and the only place that feels safe is inside of your flames.
When I send you a half-naked picture message, well, that one’s obvious, right?
Yours if you’ll have me,
