It’s days like this that I want to be near you. It’s days like this that I want to be close to you, in your arms, holding you close. It’s days like this that I can hardly bear our current situation and wish we lived near each other. Days like this…
Days like today—cold, rainy, dreary, quiet—are days that you want to cuddle up to the one you love; cuddled up, under a blank, the only sounds being the pitter patters of your heartbeats and of the rain hitting the ground.
Days like this make you start thinking, wondering about the world. Something about the outside world being grayed out makes you become very introspective. Our world has so many distractions, so many stimuli that the senses are attracted to; but when those outside distractions are masked by rainfall and gray skies, it allows the mind to turn inward.
So today—I’m deep in thought. I'm thinking about my life and what makes me the happiest. I’m thinking about love and what makes it work. I’m thinking about loss and what makes people recover.
I’m thinking about my boyfriend and how he and I can love fully and completely with no boundaries or limitations. Days like today make me want to live my “happily ever after” with him right now.
I look outside and it looks as if the earth is mourning. The sky is gray, the trees are drooping, the ground is soggy, the birds are hiding. The way the raindrops hit the window and run down the glass show me that the world is also longing for something. Days like today make me feel sorrowful.
I look outside; no children are playing, no people are walking, barely any cars on the road. There are no birds dancing in the sky, no insects scooting along the ground, no butterflies fluttering in the air. Days like today make me feel lonely.
It’s days like today that I want to be near the man I love, so he can calm my pensive mind, dry my weeping eyes, and console my lonely heart.
Days like today…make me want you!
