Why She Cannot SleepWhen sleeping next to others she would alwaysWhy She Cannot Sleep by KnittedBunny
curl her soul up into a ball,
try to minimize the space that her presence took up;
It did not matter how she felt about the body next to her -
the thought of entangling herself in another person as she slept was
With you, however,
She needed you next to her to sleep,
Needed your arms wrapped around her,
Needed your warmth behind her,
Needed you all around her.
Frankly I think she just
For the first time.
She could face you as she slept,
where she never could before,
where she would refuse to do more than share half the space;
She began to fall asleep buried in your chest,
And instead she slept in one space, inhabited by more than one
but also only by one
for you and she were no longer just she and you.
that has begun to change.
When you lie next to her
She does not reach out for you.
You share the bed,
but not the space.
You are separate,
And she cannot sleep
GuiltIt came down to us like rain, falling over us, trying to wash us clean, but the blood had dried on our bodies and could never come off. Forgiveness won't clean us: no matter how much we are forgiven our guilt is not assuaged, for it can never be assuaged.Guilt by KnittedBunny
I Had ThoughtI had thought I was over this. That I could have a glass or two and not spiral out of control.I Had Thought by KnittedBunny
You were right.
Feel better now?
Are you smug as you hold my shivering body for, what, the third time since I “quit” all those years ago?
If We EverIf we ever had the courage to face one another, I would kiss you. Pull you to me, like I did when we were drunk. Almost faint from the taste. I'd run my hands through your hair.If We Ever by KnittedBunny
Too bad we won't muster up the nerve before I leave here again.
We Took TurnsWe took turns back and forth, puffing our cheeks to inhale that skunky perfection. Heads thrown back on our shoulders, palms in the sand, ash scattering on the wind. We watched the sun go down, vermillion over the ocean, and we were lost in the haze, happy to just be.We Took Turns by KnittedBunny

This is me! I'm a writer, a photographer, a knitter, and a fan of tree-climbing. Hope you enjoy what you see here, and if you have any questions about anything, suggestions on how to improve my work, or would just like to chat, please feel free to let me know!
P.S. This is also me, but on a rather... R rated RPG that is an absolute BLAST to play.
P.P.S. I really like quotes. Have some more.
"Are you the now-or-never kind? / Want to stay / Not to go / I wanna ditch the logical"
"Be my thrill / My little white pill / My unpaid bill / The one who will / Be my love / My little grey dove / My push and my shove / My heaven above"
"Lovers hold hand to numb the pain / Gripping tightly to something that they'll never own / And those by themselves, by choice or by some reward / No mistakes; Only now you're bored / This is the time of your life but you just can't tell"
"Sometimes I wonder why we don't all move on / 'Cause we all end up in a tiny pine box, a mighty small drop, and a mighty dark plot / And the mighty fine print hastens the trip to our epilogue!"
"Help! I need a Halloween costume!" "You should dress as a tree!!!" ...... "That was terrible in a very unique way."
"What can I compare you to? / A window that sun shines through / Maybe the silver moon / A smile rising / The magic of the fading day / Satellites on parade / A toast to the plans we've made to live like kings"
"Dreaming of the better times when we're becalmed / When you don't know your name, and you smell like a farm / Time to pop another cork and do yourself some harm!"
"Hey, where'd all the stuff go?" *silence* "OHMIGOD WE FORGOT THE PINEAPPLE!"
