Another one of my popular pieces written for the Elephant Journal. It would seem most people want “something just like this”.
I want to be kissed softly on the forehead, just because.
I want to be washing the dishes mindlessly or brushing my teeth. Your arms wrap around me from behind. Warmly. Your face buried. Your lips grazing my neck.
I want to be busy doing something, focused on the task at hand. I look up. See you with that look in your eye, you know the one..the one that says I’ll devour you.
I want to be in the car singing really badly because I do actually sing really badly, when you take my hand in yours.
I want to be talking animatedly, rambling even and maybe you aren’t really listening but you pretend that you are.
I want you to hold my precious heart. Delicately. Affectionately. With all the care and love you have.
I want you to know that I will hold your precious heart. Delicately. Affectionately. With all the care and love that I have.
I want to be challenged! Challenge me on my thoughts. We’ll challenge each other and animatedly debate our ideas.
I want to argue. Good relationships aren’t passive, they are emotive. I want there to be fire because that shows we fight for what is important to us.
I want to make up after arguing. I want great communication and super hot make-up sex.
I want us to support each others dreams, whatever they may be. Individual dreams and shared dreams.
I want you to be vulnerable. Tell me your darkest secrets. Your happiest moments. Tell me what scares you. What excites you. Tell me what you want. What you desire. I want to know everything. Laugh. Cry. Let me hold you. Let me be there for you.
I want to cook for you. I want you to appreciate my efforts, even though I’m a mediocre cook at best.
I want to grow with you. I want us to grow individually. Grow together and we will transform.
I want you to have interests of your own. I want to have interests of my own. I want to have shared interests. Two people with interesting and full lives independently and together.
I want you to be passionate. Passionate about life. Passionate about your dreams and goals. Passionate about what’s important to you. Passionate about me. Passionate about us.
I want to sneak into the shower and wrap my arms around you when you have shampoo all through your hair and in your eyes.
I want you to be adventurous. Adventurous to try new things. Go to new places.
I want to lay in the bath with you talking about life. Reading. Staring into each others eyes in silence. Simply being.
I want you to understand I am both a mother and a woman. My children no matter their age are my gifts and I will always be there for them. As I will understand you may have your own gifts.
I want you to respect me. Respect my independence. Respect my boundaries. Respect that I will love you hard.
I want a chemistry and energy that defies logic. A connection so strong it just is.
I want you to love all my flaws and imperfections because there are plenty. I want you to look at my wobbly bits and say “f*ck you’re sexy”.
I want to work together. Financially. Physically. Spiritually. I want to be equal. Always supportive.
I want you to be whole. Happy with yourself. Loving yourself. Then we compliment each others life. We want and desire. We do not need.
I want you to touch me. Play with my hair. Tickle my back. Rub my legs. Slap my ass. I want to touch you. Massage you. Touch you in that way that drives you wild.
I want to play. Have fun. Laugh. Be sarcastic. Tease each other as only those who share intimacy can.
I want you to love nature as much as I do. To feel the ocean in your soul. To be enchanted by sunrises and sunsets. To be grateful of the beauty that surrounds us each and every day.
I want you to be proud of me. Proud of who I am and what I have achieved because I will be so f*cking proud of you.
I want you to me motivated. Motivated to fulfil your goals. Motivated to grow with me. Motivated to fight for what you believe in.
I want you to own your sh*t and call me on mine. We all make mistakes. Admitting to them openly and genuinely apologising is how we move forward. Forever speaking our truth.
I want to lay with my head on your chest, in silence. Both of us caught up in our own thoughts. Communicating without the need for words. I want to hear your heartbeat. Feel the inhale and exhale of your breath.
I want to learn from you. I want you to learn from me. I want us to forever be on a journey of learning. Evolving.
I want you to be kind and caring by nature, as I am. Generous with your time and always willing to give to others.
I want you to think I’m a Goddess. See me as your Queen because you will be my King.
I want to share life. I want to share love. I want to share experiences and magic moments. Moments we will carry with us forever.
I want us to live every f*cking day with purpose. As if it’s our last. Inspire each other. Drive each other a little crazy. Laugh at each other and ourselves. Rock each others world. Rock each others minds. Rock each others spirit. Rock each others bodies.
I want something just like this.
