i either like this one, or it sucks a lot. perhaps both.

i’ll probably never remember
what colour your eyes are
i just
won’t
but i’ll remember
with jarring accuracy
any time i make them
sad
even
a little
and i will
make them sad
i know
no matter how hard
i work
not to
because
i’m never more of a dick
then when I try
too hard
to be a good guy
rather than just
being
me
i’ll say the right things
and hope
you hear the real things
in between
the words
i’ll caress your breasts
and want
you to feel
more than…
the want
i’ll need you
to see
affection in desire
can you
i wonder
sweetie
i’ll never notice
if you’re wearing lipstick
but your frown will break my heart

    I don’t know why, but I’m curious. How long does it take you to come up with a word doodle?

      It varies.

      Last week, this part popped into my head:

      “i’m never more of a dick
      then when I try
      too hard
      to be a good guy
      rather than just
      being
      me”

      I wrote the rest this morning… in, like, 10 or 15 minutes?

      Doodles seem to just come out when they are ready.

    You have no idea how refreshing it is to get a glimpse into a guy’s head and realize that they’re really not all jerks. Thank you.

  11. Does not suck.

    Exact opposite of ‘not suck’.

    …wait that’s ‘blow’. Ouuff. Nevermind.

    It’s good.
