Twenty-Four years young & insane.
Much love from the coast of Cali.
I’ve tried Jack
I’ve tried Jim
I’ve tried all of their friends
I can’t drink you away
[but that’s just it, it was just a dream]
… get out of my head.
It was the 60’s. Whiskey or Scotch on the rocks. Slicked hair, cigarettes, marketing ads, and 2 Chainz.
Alright, it was a Mad Men costume party at a mutual friend’s house.
…or maybe it was at State.
But wherever it was, I walked into the 3 Stalled bathroom. Eggshell white tiles, and charcoal grey stall doors, I was tugged in by the smell of cigarette smoke inside; the first door had a black suit jacket thrown over it, I knew it was him.
I pushed the door open, then closed it shut just as he zipped up his pants. I took the cigarette that was hanging out of his mouth and placed it in mine.
"What are you doing?"He sounded more amused than angry.
"Looking for a cigarette. I knew you had some on you."
He shrugged, turning to fully face me. “That’s true.” I passed him the cigarette back and as he grabbed it from my hand, a shock wave flowed through my arm, all the way under my dress.
I wish to blame it on the alcohol, or the emptiness, to fill the void on a fling; but i jumped at the chance for a passionate moment in the middle of a crowded social gathering.
Because when he asked me “Is that all you were looking for?”
I was looking down at my shoes. Trying my best not to—
Not to look up at his caramel eyes, slicked hair, His stupid raised eyebrow expression, smirk included.
I closed the small gap between us, our bodies pressed together, holding the end of his tie with my right hand, my left hand pressed against his strong chest.
"I’m also looking for something a bit more… exciting."
I pulled on his tie, and leaning forward, our lips united in smokey haze. He dropped the cigarette into the toilet, running his hands to my lower back, and neck.
Two lonely hearts in a bathroom stall, ignited by electricity falling away from the static of a dull evening until the early morning.
[but this was all just an elaborate wet dream]
