The silent moments between us used to be unbearable
Now, I savor the opportunity to cherish you
To completely devote myself to the ease of your laughter
The careful way you choose your words

I close my eyes and I feel myself reach toward you
My hands eager to recapture every curve of your face
To brush my fingers through your hair
Recapturing the intimacy we tried to restrain

You meet my eyes and everything inside of you
whispers my name like a prayer, it is clear and unwavering
The distance between us is closed and I hear your declaration
“Mine”

And we both sigh in relief

It took fifteen years for me to recognize you and another fifteen to try to forget you. I buried you in my work, duty and vices but I was never sated. You were my dream and I couldn’t conjure anything better.

We tried throughout the years to grab snatches of each other but we were always unsuccessful. The timing was never right. Our feelings never in the same place. We’d taken turns feeling abandoned and betrayed.

But we did love.

Lives built apart from each other started to seem like prisons and we found each other again. Waded through the pain and rose above it. Determined to know happiness.
You, hesitant. Me, unsure.

Anime Monday Review: Seven Deadly Sins S1

Seven Deadly Sins
Season 1

The Fine Print:
Written By: Nakaba Suzuki
First Published: October 2012
Anime Written By: Shotaro Suga
Adapted for Anime: Fall 2014
Directed by: Tensai Okamura
Composers: Hiroyuki Sawano + Takafumi Wama
Source: Netflix

A great opening theme is always the indicator of an amazing Anime and it’s fair to say that Hiroyuki Sawano and Takafumi Wama took some time to stunt on us a little bit. We got multiple opening and ending themes and I haven’t been this impressed with an overall anime soundtrack since Gangsta.

Netflix Recommendation: Snow Day Horror Day Duos

The best way to spend a Snow Day is boo’d up with a warm beverage, a good watch and maybe some company. This Snow Day, I’d like to recommend some light horror watching that will thrill but not completely terrify. The perfect recipe for cuddles and great conversation. 

All of my recommendations will be duos, best watched together.

Nightwatch is first, Daywatch the follow up.

The best way to categorize these two would be Urban Supernatural Fantasy. The war between the light and the dark plays out again, this time with gusto. In Russia, apocalypse does you!

Gluten Free: Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers 

I recently discovered this at my local Target. Lance Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers.  As a huge fan of peanut butter, I jumped at the prospect of having this snack again.  I used to love both the Ritz Cheese and Peanut Butter Sandwich crackers.

Surprisingly crisp, it was refreshing to experience that texture again.  Keep in mind, these are mini sandwich crackers so they are small.  I found them to be slightly salty but that’s mostly because I ate the entire box.  (It’s supposed to have three servings)

I’m sold! It’s hard to come by delicious gf treats that aren’t overly sweet and still manage to be on the healthier side – if portioned correctly.

Perfect for breakfast or a quick snack.  I’m definitely going to explore more of the Lance brand.  There’s a cheddar cheese version of this product. *squee*

Watch Worthy – Hannibal Takes Edinburgh

HannibalBurress

Hannibal Takes Edinburgh is a refreshing approach to a comedic documentary that is surprising and funny.  Hannibal has always been fascinating to me; from his deadpan delivery to his seemingly perfect mix of friendly and aloof.

Shot in 2012 at the world-famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival that features hundreds of shows in 25 days – Burress would perform multiple days, every day for a month. This trip predates his quick rise to fame and is a perfect complement to Comedy Camisado (Netflix Original) which was released in February of this year.

What makes this Watch Worthy isn’t only the comedy – which, is great but also the emotional and psychological change that you watch Hannibal go through. After getting frustrated with the monotony, you get to see him fall in love with comedy all over again and it was great to watch.  This movie was filmed way before his break-out role in Broad City and even before the Bill Cosby all outs and now, I feel a kinship with him – he really loves comedy and works hard to hone his craft. What more can I ask of him?

If you’re a fan of Hannibal Burress or of good documentary that centers comedy  you should definitely check this out – even if you’re not a fan of his, it’s a great piece on immersing yourself in culture and the flip side of everyone expecting a “laugh” from a comedian.
