although cuddling with someone is nice
there is nothing quite like
hugging that stuffed animal really tight
to carry away all your childhood fears
to wipe away all your tears
to never leave when you need the most comfort
there is nothing like hugging a stuffed animal
to feel the softness engulf you
to enjoy the nostalgia all around you
that stuffed animal may seem so lifeless
but if you give it a life it will come alive
and seems to hug you back all the time
to those days you're all alone
and you just simply need a hug
remember who is always there
cuddling with someone is nice
but still there is nothing like
hugging that stuffed animal tight
I put myself back in that place,
Beyond the veil of that fall-turning-to-winter night
Clentched together in the backseat of my Honda,
The air was foggy with anticipation
As the delicate murmurs of gentle songs
Hummed, and I breathed in the scent of your hair
As my nose rest against the top of your head,
And your eyes reflected off mine,
A halo of fractured light from
The street lamp outside
Graced the silhouette of your lullaby face,
A stern wind shook the car
But were forever still
In each other's arms,
Warmed by the years
We dreamed of
I love you, my sweet, little bug
We lazed this morning, cuddly snug
Hiding from a drizzly day
Warm and giggling as we lay
Hearting art, space and cats
Asking questions, having chats
Watching mag lev trains on screen
Learning magnetism for the keen
A picture couldn’t hold this bliss
Nor any words fully reminisce
The two of us, affectionately enspooned
Love, peace, curiousity, cocooned
NCL April 2019
The weight of your lover as you're cuddling,
Their usually tense body so relaxed and
comforting, the slight pressure of them on
You makes you feel so safe.
The almost subconscious movement of your
Fingers as you run them through your lover's hair,
The pleasant texture of soft hair
And the occasional appreciative groan
Keeps you from stopping.
The sound of their quiet breathing is
Slow and steady, and you,
Being half awake, mimic their
Breathing pattern as best you can to try and
Sync with them as their chest
Rises and falls against your body.
The full feeling of being completely warm
Makes you never want to move from
This exact position for a long time,
I have found that I am almost always craving cuddles now that I know how amazing it feels to cuddle with someone you love a lot.
I take a deep breath in,
and let it out.
I'm safe here.
The blankets are warm,
I'm cocooned in the crook of your arm.
I worry I'm happy enough to disappear.
That I might somehow transform,
and lose this thing that I absolutely adore.
I let a slow breath out,
and took a deep one in.
All is well once more.
i keep looking at pictures
imagining what it would be like
to hold you in my arms
me? finally having enough emotional security to develop a crush? it’s more likely than you think
honestly tho how long until she hates me
in your toughest
may the universe
kiss you with
warm coffee and
while the chaos
outside your window.
I think you take my breath away.
People always say that as an endearing thing.
But I think you actually physically take my breath away.
I don't know how.
Maybe it was when you layed your head on my chest.
Or tangled your fingers with mine.
Or felt safe enough to drift off to sleep in my arms.
All I know is that I think you take my breath away.
I just wish I was surer of you.
Because I want that feeling for eternity.
But I don't think you are my eternity.
For those who know what it feels like
You make me feel like the man I've always aspired to be,
And the little, scared kid I used to always be.
At first, I wasn't sure,
Too much running through my head.
But once we were there on your couch,
Sharing warmth and asylum.
My heart raced like it hadn't in years,
My mind going a thousand miles an hour.
Once you fit your hands in mine,
And curled up beside me.
It felt safe and natural,
Like we had been here before.
Your genuine smile and cute laugh,
At every terrible joke I made.
Your smell remained on my left shoulder sleeve,
And your phantom fingers softly brushing.
It all felt natural.
It all felt right.
At least for tonight.
For those falling somewhere for someone
