TONIGHT - Shiza Khan (@her_pseudonym ) With all the city lights gone, I spend the rest of this eternity masked as night, mouthing the syllables of his name. In the corner of my vision, a record player that doesn't play my favourite melody anymore, and love smiling between traffic jams and hurried up shoelaces. Laughing, with a Marlboro Red pressed between his lips. His grey T-shirt and my dress, a crumpled mess near his ankle, inches away from where that speck of a mole is. The cologne on the bedside table, isn't his favourite but I still find it on him every day, when he plays Bob Marley songs for me and lets me fall asleep with my head on his shoulder; when he traces purple hickeys all over my neck. Tomorrow, we'll watch my favourite show, and maybe sip some beer or apple juice. We'll board the last train with all our baggage, and won't forget to take Murakami with us. But tonight, I reek of cigarettes and him. #terriblytinytales #ttt #microfiction #wordporn #words #wordgasm #writer #author #poet #poem #writing #writersofinstagram #writersofig #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #authorsofinstagram #writerscommunity #writingcommunity #poetrycommunity #instawriter #instapoet #storytelling #stories #shortstories #tales #app
