high in the air


In the middle of aisle 7,
trying to choose candy bars
and my mother asking me how can someone
take all this time to choose
something that should take seconds.


Ten years between then and now
the high school corridor now.
My fists in the air between me and his face,
the crowd aghast.

Three seconds, four.

I’m deciding
Just give me a minute.


She’s sitting next to me
and we’re driving home.

She’s about to leave me,
and I know it. She’s about to say it
and I know it. I have my hands
in my throat trying to find my voice,
but I can’t choose between the steering wheel,
and the situation.

Say something, goddamnit!
But I’d rather stay quiet.

Anything. Anything.
Say anything.


At the gate between the brick lanes,
my heart in a bag over my shoulder.

I’m trying to choose between finding myself
and taking myself home,
too spaced out to actually decide.

My eyes confined to the frame of my eyeglasses;
I look up, out the box
and suddenly everything is blurry.

(The aisles of choice
have a broad range.
Sometimes you’re just short
on the money.)

I love your blog so much, omg thank you so much for all your time and effort, I was wondering if you could do hc's for Naruto, Kiba, Kankuro, Deidara, and Hidan about their s/o (pref fem but not necessary) being short and chubby??? Thank you so much and I hope you're doing well!!!!

Hello! Thank you very much, that really meant a lot! Positive feedback always makes my day a whole lot better so I really appreciate your words  <3 5 characters is a little bit too much so I’m going to do Hidan, Deidara and Naruto for now if that’s okay? Thank you x


  • Out of the three, Hidan would be most prone to teasing his s/o for their height. Not in a malicious way, but more cheeky. He is the type of boyfriend to hold objects that his s/o wants really high in the air so they can’t reach them, much to his s/o’s annoyance. When he is feeling affectionate he would find their height cute and feel very protective over them even if they can defend themselves because they are just so tiny.  
  • However, if Hidan and his s/o were having an argument he would probably resort to saying stupid things like “well at least I’m not short!”. If it upsets his s/o to the point of tears or ignoring him he will attempt to apologise.  
  • I think Hidan would like an s/o with a bit of meat on them, especially in the bedroom. He just cannot resist the curves and a bit of jiggle. If anyone ever dared to say mean things about their weight in front of Hidan, all hell would break loose. The culprit’s body would be unrecognisable and just a complete bloody mess after Hidan is finished with them. He would probably invite his s/o to inflict the finishing blow. 


  • Deidara is a hopeless romantic at heart. Once he falls in love, he just can’t find a single fault in his s/o. They are just perfect to him. So if his s/o ever voiced insecurities about their height or weight he wouldn’t understand what they mean. Like I can just imagining his reply to be something like “What do you mean y/n? You’re a work of art to me.” 
  • Like Deidara he would also be extra protective over a smaller s/o, always insisting that they hold onto him when flying on his clay dragon. Why does that sound like an innuendo? But yeah he can act like their dad when it comes to keeping them safe. He also has an annoying habit of lifting them up onto things even if they are perfectly capable of doing it themselves.  
  • He finds their chubby cheeks so cute and is constantly pinching them and poking them when they pout. Likewise to get revenge, his s/o will braid and play with his hair, much to his irritation. 


  • Naruto would be ideal for an insecure partner because he always urges them to love themselves like how he loves them. Naruto falls in love with personality so the appearance of his s/o really doesn’t matter to him in the slightest. If his s/o ever complained about their weight he would be so confused and wished they would appreciate what counts.
  • However he does find it hilarious to watch his s/o struggle to reach things off high shelves in supermarkets or book stores. He will just stand there for a moment trying not to laugh before offering them some assistance.
  • He will use his s/o as a pillow, so having a more ‘squishy’ s/o will be much appreciated at night. With his s/o being small too, he literally sleeps like a kid with a teddy bear.

I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

  • MC: What's in it?
  • Seven: It’s heavy. Must be his disappointment in me.
