One day, you will
let go of his hand
for the both of
you.

He will beg for
you to come back
to bed, his words
will tear right
through your skin
and into your
chest, where you
are keeping
yourself safe.

Sometimes
leaving is the
most important
part of loving
someone.

The weather varies between heavy fog and pale sunshine; My thoughts follow the exact same process."

Except I think it feels more like an empty stomach than a broken heart. An aching hollowness that food can’t cure. You know. You’ve felt it yourself, I bet. You hurt all the time, you’re restless, you can’t think straight, you sort of wish you were dead but what you really want is for everything to be the same as it was when you were still with her… or him."

I do not use the word home lightly. So when I sigh it into the crook of your neck, believe that your spine is a timber frame, your kiss a welcome mat, and your enveloping arms my front door."

Don’t you dare
Shrink yourself
For someone else’s comfort -
Do not become small
For people who refuse to grow."

To feel anything
deranges you. To be seen
feeling anything strips you
naked. In the grip of it
pleasure or pain doesn’t
matter. You think what
will they do what new
power will they acquire if
they see me naked like
this
. If they see you
feeling. You have no idea
what. It’s not about them.
To be seen is the penalty."
- Anne Carson, from Red Doc (via emmalynsullivan)
