Damn

Sometimes, you’re just sitting there.

Life is moving on around you.

Dishes are clinking in the kitchen.

The television is going on about Geico.

But in this moment, your mind isn’t on the gecko.

The man you love has said something.

It’s completely irrelevant.

The words themselves, meaningless.

All you can think.

All you can feel..

All you can breathe…

Is the scent of the moment.

The split-second

When you looked at him

When you realized he was yours

and said,

quietly…

“Damn.”
