Need You Now
This night is fucking epic. Or at least it was until I started drinking, started thinking, of you. You. So beautiful, so tender, so strong, so everything that I'm not.
My aunt and little brother are playing another round of Rockband. I'm out on the balcony playing another round of missing you. I miss you. You know that, right? I need you. You know that, right? I love you. I've always loved you. You know that, right?
I take a drink of my martini, the cool liquid burning my throat. Do you think of me? I think of you all the time. In the morning, when the sun shines and seagulls call. During work, when I'm in the middle of an important meeting. When I'm with a woman, with her, kissing and touching. It's never the same as you. In the middle of the night, so alone like now.
It's late; it's half past two.
I need you now. God, how I fucking need you. To hold me, to feel me, to love me.
I look down at my phone in my hand. I look out into the darkness, the wild abyss of the ocean, of my heart churning and burning so much. Waves of love crash and thrash against the soft sand, against my soul.
You told me not to call. I want to give you time and space. But, I am a little drunk. I lose all control. And, I need you now. I don't know how I can do without you. You.
I dial your number and put the phone up to my ear, hoping to hear your sweet voice.
I hope it's not too late.
