Thirsty

I need a drink of water...

but not just any kind. Any 'ol beverage won't do; it may look clear, but I want some that's so real, it'll leave a brotha thinkin' its WAY too-good-to-be-true. Not the type outta the fountain, either. Hell nah...I need that purified H2O, some FIJI-type ish. The kind that, even lined up with the others, is IMPOSSIBLE to miss.

Maybe it has to do with the time; ya know, it is the middle of the night. Damn near everything is off, even the bulb from my bedside light. It's dark as can be, but the feeling is still there, and even though there's some water in the fridge, for that type, I have no care. That aint gonna quench this thirst. If anything, drinkin' that stuff in there may make it MUCH MORE worse.

...I'm thirsty in the worst way, like Tom Hanks makin' friends with that ball in Cast Away, or the hopeless feeling of seeing a boat pull further and further from the bay...and believe, last thing I wanna do is go crazy. I'm really tryna stay sane, so maybe quenchin' my thirst will give me the same feeling he had when he finally got back on that plane, and alas felt...at peace.

What's left to do? I aint tryna die from dehydration, or something else that can be prevented. Then again, the last thing I wanna do is take a swig from just anywhere, regardless of how cold it is, or how it's being presented. Best thing to do now is just...go to sleep, and hope this thirst subsides, but if it doesn't...it's off to 7/11 I go, and that trip is VERY close by.

I feel you, bruh. I too have those nights where I want to pick up the phone and make that call but I keep telling myself that eventually that well is going to run dry anyways so I better try and do one of two things - accept that the water is only temporary or find with a woman who works, cooks, treats me like a king, and buys natural spring water when she makes groceries.

hmmm ive got a feeling ur not talking about H20 lol.

Im with u on this one. My old roommate and I were going on about how many "drinks" I passed up during college for one reason or another. Looks like I made some sound decisions by not quenching my thirsts.

I completely feel you on this post. I was just having this convo with myself last week. Unfortunately, I did quench my thirst...

On another note... I stumbled across your blog and I really like it. Keep it up. TEXAS REPRESENT!

On a different note, when I saw the post "Thirsty" I thought about this gospel song by Marvin Sapp. I am thirsty myself. Thirsty for God and what He has in store for me.

There's nothing like good water.
