Love & Lust • Just Another Guy


“They’ll never know the places we’ve travelled or the stories we’ve told – all while never letting go.”

Girls will meet you.

They’ll shake your hand, learn your name, and catch a glimpse of your mischievous smile.

But, they’ll never know the comfort I get when my hand is interlocked in yours. They’ll never know the places we’ve traveled or the stories we’ve told – all while never letting go.

They’ll never know the times I called your name. Laughing and kicking as I surrendered to your tickle match. They’ll never know the pain behind those late-night-calls, the times I was drunk and vulnerable at 2 a.m.

They’ll never love your smile like I do. Embracing every chance to see it shine. They’ll never know the way your voice cracks mid-laugh, nor will they understand the jokes you mutter from your half amused smirk.

To her, you are jut another handshake.

Another name. Another mischievous smile.

To her, you are just another guy.

    Pretty sure this works with the genders reversed too, or any combination of genders for that matter…

      Absolutely! Sorry, Dennis. It can be hard to write for both genders sometimes, but I know you can take the same message from it 🙂

        I know, I get it. You’re writing what you know, and that’s ok 🙂
