I would love to say
weak in the knees
to be quite upfront
make my body
it has knees
Derrick Brown, “Love Language”
She imagines him imagining her.
This is her salvation.
Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin
And I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you.
Kiersten White, The Chaos of Stars
When you start to know someone, all their physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in their energy, recognize the scent of their skin. You see only the essence of the person, not the shell. That’s why you can’t fall in love with beauty. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and your body but not your heart. And that’s why, when you really connect with a person’s inner self, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant.
Lisa Unger, Beautiful Lies
Between what is said and not meant
And what is meant and not said
Most of love is lost
Does my name pass through your mind when it’s 3 am and you’re wide awake?
BOY HANDS !!!!!!!!! BOYS WITH HANDS!!!!!!!!!! BOYS WITH VEINY HANDS!!!!!!!!!!!! THE HANDS OF BOYS
