I Hunger

I Hunger

I hunger for our fingers intertwined

I hunger, but not for food

I hunger for your lips on mine

Both pair chapped and slightly wet

Chaste kisses, but kisses nonetheless

I hunger for your hands running ever so gently through my hair

Occasionally getting caught in a tangle

Which sends a small rush of pain up the back of my neck

I hunger for those chocolate colored eyes gazing into mine

I hunger for your touch, no matter how small

The brush of our knees

Your fingertips making circles on my shoulders

Or the back of my neck

I hunger for our fingers intertwined

Holding hands is easier to do than kissing

Because we are not like others

It doesn't matter because we still do it

And we will continue to do it

An Open Letter To My Boyfriend's Mom

A simple thank you is not enough.

Your son and I have been dating a while now and I just wanted to thank you for everything.

Wow, where do I start? Ever since the day your son brought me into your home you have shown me nothing but kindness. I have not one negative thought about you and I am truly thankful for that. I first and foremost want to thank you for welcoming me with open arms. There are horror stories of mothers resenting their son's girlfriends and I am blessed there is no resentment or harsh feelings.

Thank you for treating me like one of your children, with so much love but knowing exactly when to tease me.

Thank you for sticking up for me when your son teases me, even though I know it’s all in good fun it's always comforting knowing you have someone by your side.

Thank you for raising a man who respects women and knows how to take responsibility of mistakes and not a boy who is immature and doesn’t take responsibility.

Thank you for always including me in family affairs, I may not be blood family but you do everything you can to make sure I feel like I am.

Thank you for letting me make memories with your family.

There is nothing I value more in this world then memories with friends and family and I am thankful you want and are willing to include me in yours. I have so much to thank you for my thoughts keep running together.

The most important thing I have to thank you for is for trusting me with your son. I know how precious and valuable he is and I won't break his heart. I will do everything I can to make him happy. This means more than you could ever imagine and I promise I will never break your trust.

The second most important thing I must thank you for is for accepting me for who I am. Never have you ever wished I looked like another girl or acted like another girl. You simply love and care for me and that’s all I could ever ask. Every person in this world is a unique different person and understanding that means a lot.

The third most important thing I must thank you is teaching me how to one day in the future treat a potential girlfriend that I may interact with as a mother. I am not a mother, but I one day plan to be. If I ever have a son it is because of how you treated me that I am able to be a humble loving mother to this new face that could one day walk into my door. How you have treated me has taught me how I should one day be in the future and I thank you for that.

This may seem all over the place but that’s how my brain gets when I try and thank you for everything you have done for me. It’s all so much and even the little things are so important so I promise my scattered thoughts are all with good intentions and not meant to bombard you. I just want to get the idea across to you that you are important and special to me and everything you do does not go unnoticed.

a boyfriend's perspective on why You Should Listen To Your Girlfriend More Often

Because she's always right!


It may sound cliché, but it's the truth: the girl in a relationship is ALWAYS right. Girls have a kind of uncanny intuition. I don't know how or why, but they always seem to know what's right and what's wrong, and they're hardly ever mistaken in their judgment.

"That can't be true. Girls are just unwilling to admit when they've done wrong."

I concede to the idea that girls are stubborn, but who isn't? I know plenty of guys who are stubborn, most of which are close friends of mine. Stubbornness is an innate aspect of our being. Everyone is stubborn, and those who say they aren't most likely defend their claim in a stubborn manner.

Oh, the irony.

Girls and boys are both stubborn. Now that we've clarified that, let's examine why it's more justified for females to be uncompromising than males.

The short answer? GIRLS ARE ALWAYS RIGHT!

Like I said before, girls don't just say things to hear themselves talk. They say things because they want YOU to listen. They want YOU to fully absorb the message being conveyed. They want YOU to use this newfound knowledge positively in future situations.

As someone who's been in a relationship for over 15 months now, I have learned to accept these ideas as facts and not to challenge a woman's authority. Like any couple, my girlfriend and I occasionally argue over stupid stuff. She says something, so I say something back, and she proceeds to retaliate. It's a recurring sequence.

Eventually, however, I almost always come to the realization that what I'm saying is irrelevant, and that continuing to argue will only make things worse.

It's almost like a lightbulb goes off in my head at a certain point. Something I've failed to acknowledge throughout the entirety of our argument suddenly becomes crystal clear. I'm wrong, she's right. Another argument in the books.

Men, I'm not just telling you this to make your significant others happy. This isn't about "letting" the woman be right. It's about knowing she's right and learning to live with it.

I'm keeping this short and sweet. The reason why I decided to discuss this topic is that I've witnessed too many women fall captive to unwavering masculinity. The voices of women all across the world are viewed as obsolete, even in modern times.

We aren't living in the 1800s anymore. This is 2018. Women have just as much, if not more, to offer the world than men do. I bet that if we listened to women more, the world would be a much better place.

I'm forever grateful for my girlfriend. She's taught me things about myself I never knew before and I can't thank her enough. Marirose: my first love and the one who never fails to let me know when I'm wrong. I doubt I'll ever win an argument with Marirose. She's just too damn smart.

Don't make your girl upset or try to bring her down. Watch that butterfly flap her wings. Her potential is limitless.

And remember that she's ALWAYS RIGHT!
