I asked my boyfriend to give me a writing prompt. If you could be someone else for a week who would you be? And how would you be different when you came back?
I really want to say I’d like to be God. You know figure out how this whole existence stuff really works. Of course if he didn’t exist I’d have wasted a chance to be different but hey… then I’d know.
I could pick me 30 years from now but what if I don’t exist then? And if I don’t exist what does that look like? Heaven? Hell? Or would I wake up reincarnated as a person or an animal? Too many possibilities.
I think I’ll keep it here and now and simple.
If I could love you better I would
If I could be you, walk in your shoes
Would I learn more than I know now?
Would I find a network of cables
And an old phone operator in my head
Changing emotions out like callers
Instead of the bare wired mess I have
Oh here we go your girlfriend is calling
Please connect her to patience and calm
Oh how I would love organized emotion
Would I feel complete and happy
With the love I receive, content and secure
Or would I find secret worries
Tucked inside muscles, behind blue eyes
If I could know how you absorb me
Maybe when I was me again
I’d love you better than I now could
