I know how to light things up
You know…to blow things out of proportion.
How about that time when those women talked of an ungrateful son, and I thought of a prince and a kingdom?
How about when Grumpy said “okay,” and I thought we were done.
Or when he called twenty times and I did not answer, or apologize?
See, I know how to set emotions ablaze.
Take a pinch of doubt, sprinkle some unmet expectations, let it simmer in your mind for ten minutes then serve while hot.
Take an ounce of joy, you know the feeling of sheer bliss that emanates from a hug, kiss, or assurance, it often inspires you to sing or continuously update your Facebook status. Take this ounce of joy, let it boil for five minutes by scrolling through your IG feed for #baegoals and then have it cool…it is a dish best served with either a warm blanket or a box of tissues, you decide.
I know how to light things up, to set the world on fire with these little sets of dynamite called emotions, for once they are summoned, they rarely leave a party.
Darling, before I sat to type all this, I was ablaze, and nothing beats being in a new town- loving the people, the places, the night life but totally missing the weather you used to own as yours.
