So He Said

He said he wanted an Addict:

A woman addicted to knowledge.

He said he wanted a Pusher:

Someone to push him past his limits.

He said he wanted an Accomplice:

Someone who wouldn’t turn on him when times get tough.

He said he needed Security:

A woman who could secure his heart and protect it.

He said he wanted to a Drug:

The kind of love that gets him high.

To elevate higher than all boundaries, so they could ascend together.

It sounded so simple.

But when I said,

“You Ready?”

He hesitated.
