I am perhaps
to those who
are outside my
own flesh.

I can not help
it, I am an
each pretty
face should
come with a straw
so that I may
slurp up the
perfect moments
without them getting
stuck between
my teeth.

We’re all lonely and all we want is for someone to, you know, pay attention. And tell us we’re beautiful. And cute… And by the time we were on our way home, we were telling secrets and I wanted to move my hand. I wanted to move it so much. And then she moved hers. I wish I’d told Naomi how easy it is for me to love someone.

"when we got together it scared the shit out of me, because...you were the one person who could ruin my life. i pushed you away&made you think things were your fault, but really i was just terrified of pain. i screwed that girl sophia to kind of spite you for having that hold on me. &i'm a terrible fucking coward because i got these...these tickets to goa for us three months ago. but i, i couldn't stand...i didn't want to be a slave to the way i feel about you. can you understand? you were trying to punish me back, &it's horrible. it's so horrible, because...really...i'd die for you. i love you. i love you so much, it's killing me."

But what if there isn't just romantic and platonic love? What if it exists on a spectrum like sexuality? (Supposing you believe in the Kinsey scale even). I mean aren't there things in between romantic and platonic love? Not that platonic love isn't a deep and spiritual connection. I mean often it's more of a deep and spiritual connection than romantic love for me. Furthermore, once (with romantic), lust gets mixed in I often see things that aren't there, because the desire makes me see connection where it isn't etc.
"“Kiss me and you will see how important I am.” - Sylvia Plath


Sums up a lifetime of flawed thinking, need for recognition and affection inexplicably tangled, narcissism ever married to low self-esteem, and just general desperation for fairy tales where the physical does in fact lead to some great revelation of your amazingness and worthiness of love. It never does. All that, said so simply.
