"My boyfriend says he wants to be together forever, but I’m worried that my breakdowns will drive him away." (r.i.d)
I keep remembering last night; the laughter in your eyes at dinner with your family because, goddamn, was I nervous and it was going better than either of us had hoped.
I keep remembering last night; the way your arm snaked so easily around my neck and how your fingers traced the veins in my arm and I could hear and feel you breathe.
I keep remembering last night; the way we were at each other’s lips the second the door closed and I had stepped onto the front porch, nearly spinning into you and dizzying myself with the sound of your voice."
how seeing the shape of your mouth
that first time, I kept staring
until my blood turned to rain.
Some things take root
in the brain and just don’t
are August dawn
and for just one
we were everything."
love, like the night sky needs stars
one day, perhaps not in this life, i will meet you. we will discuss literature, films, culture, languages, art, we will create our world from that which lays beneath out very veins and i will play chosen songs in melody to you, and we will hang every piece of our souls onto our walls…
