Hold You.
Start writing a post

I wanted to know more without being to obvious about it.

I wanted to calmly walk into the winds and let my mind go.

I wanted to stand in the fields and dance under the moon.

But mostly I wanted to hold you.


Those times when you'd look up and see me.

Our eyes would always meet.

We knew to keep our distance because of the history.

The fallen sheets, the bittersweet.


I loved seeing you laugh with your friends.

I quietly celebrated your success, even in all the messiness.

It was a whirlwind, you and I.

Every now and then it still makes me cry.


If you told me, "this is it, I want you."

I'd drop everyone and find my home within you.

You watch me go but you knew I was never too far.

I knew you watched me like my ancestors watched the North Star.


Wondering often if our time had passed.

We're holding two ends of the hourglass.

I speak to you briefly and but never fully openly.

I was too honest once and you chose someone else.


My heart is timid now.

It only wakes to crashing waves and certain sounds.

You held the key to my heart but some say you lost it.

Truth is, I actually watched you toss it.


Now i'm just sitting here wet from the rain.

My subconscious slowly leaking out of my brain.

All i'm thinking of is the song you used to play.

The Beatles one, that's what I crave.


I know now unlike I did before.

I've experienced more, traveled more, grown more.

I've whispered my secrets out loud.

I've danced strongly under the moon.

Yet I still can't hold you.

As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
