I stretch, "me too." I keep stretching til my shoulder pops and when it does I let out a small moan then form a pillow with my arm and look at Colton.
His eyes are closed and he has his arm behind his head and the other one on his chest. He has a little stubble growing on his chin which I love. Guys with some hair on their face is my weakness.
I lean over and kiss him on the cheek. That wakes him up and I soon regret what I did, "sorry. Go back to sleep."
He rubs his eyes, "no, it 's okay."
I nod and turn over on my back. I start biting on my nails and study the ceiling, "why do you like me?" I shut my mouth quick and my eyes widen as I realized what I said. Shit.
"There 's a lot of reasons," he says quietly. "You 're different."

I could use a haircut, but I don 't have the money and I don 't know where one is.
Colton gets up and lights one of the incense cones and places it in a tray. He moves the curtain away from the incense and looks outside. He moves the curtain back and blows the incense to let the smoke out; it 's heavy at first then it slows down into a little strand and puffs. He looks at me and smiles, "the sun is coming out."
"And?" I say while picking at my split ends.
"The snow is going to melt."
I roll my eyes, "no, it 's gonna turn into slush which I hate more than actual snow. And the slush is basically melting snow and ice, but mud underneath cause the ground is wet and disgusting. Besides, it 's December; it 's probably gonna snow again."
"Wow. You always have a negative thought on things, don 't you?" He asks with a pissed-off tone.
I gave him a fake smile, "no, it 's just how I feel about it."
"Well, speaking of December, what do you want for Christmas?"
I shrug, "dunno. Cigarettes, a job, car, haircut. You?"
"Nice list. And nothing really," he holds it there then drops it with more words. "Maybe a date with you." He smiles.
I smile, "maybe."

    For example, “I’m sure they’re looking down from heaven and smiling at you.” While that is comforting and beautiful it can also be funny and mildly disturbing. The idea that someone is watching at all times every little mundane thing I do for one is extremely boring and also voyeuristic. Reading it alone gives me a little bit of a chuckle, but watching the animation by Juan Delcan of Spontaneous makes it so much more entertaining. The shapelessness of the dead whose enlarged eyes stare unblinkingly at everything beneath them, especially a young man who wanders about the world in underwear while smoking a cigarette gives a glimpse of both the author’s imagination and the animator’s humor. I feel that the animation made the poem so much more fantastic and impactful as well as imaginative and cheeky.…

    He continues by stating that these animals are “smothered in their lairs” tucked away from the world, yet he is “too absent-spirited to count.” In the former line, the word “smothered” is a strong, conscious choice made by Frost. While it it is being used to describe the way the animals’ homes are packed with snow, it can also mean they are being smothered by a sense of isolation and seclusion. Another meaning of note is that to smother something or someone is to suffocate them, thereby killing them. This bleakness carries over into the next line, with the speaker saying that he is “too absent-spirited to count.” This insinuates that the speaker’s mind has gone away from the scene before him and has traveled elsewhere.

    “Close your eyes, Sir and let me do my magic.” Her smile was mischievous as her body inclined nearer though her arms remained propped on the chair. “Yes, that’s it, let me ask you a few questions.” “Ok.” Reluctantly, Braydon closed his eyes though he had to admit, he did feel a little sleepy. “Tell me the first time you felt ridiculed for being your true self.” Braydon searched his memory, taught by his mother to conceal his tricks of the mind, he knew he would have to regress. Although slightly dubious, after a few deep breaths, he finally decided to open up. “I was a child…I could see things others couldn’t.” His eyes were still closed, but he could still hear Scarlett’s soft voice clearly.…
