“Not all love is gentle. Sometimes it’s gritty and dirty and possessive, sometimes it’s not supposed to be careful or soft at all. Sometimes it feels like teeth.”
“I will only let you touch me, if your hands are so full of intention, that every brush of your palms feels like you’re writing a novel on my skin.”
“I don’t want to be a piece of art. Nobody touches artwork. They just look from afar and move on.”
“I’ve stopped being sorry for all my soft. I won’t apologize because I miss you, or because I said it, or because I text you first, or again. I think everyone spends too much time trying to close themselves off. I don’t want to be cool or indifferent, I want to be honest.”
“Remember you are not an apology, you belong solely to yourself.”
“We are five year olds in the playground again, you are chiming, 'Who do you love who do you love who do you love?' My cheeks are stained so red they feel like berries on a summer day. I cannot look at you. I stare at the hole in my socks and fiddle with my hands, I wonder how the sky looks like in other countries, I wonder how I can say your name without stuttering. 'Is it me, is it me?' You whisper into my trembling mouth, every smile you've ever smiled is suddenly pressed against my teeth 'because it's you, even if it's not me, it'll still be you.”
“I hope you know that no one will love you like I did. That's not bitter, or resentful, it's just the truth.”
“Wait for someone who bumps mouths clumsily with yours cos they're too busy smiling to kiss you properly. Yeah. Wait for that.”
“You could come knocking on my door five years from now and I would open my arms wider and say ‘come here, it’s been too long, it felt like home with you.’”
“Loving someone who cannot love you the same way in return is not weakness. It’s one of the most courageous things you’ll ever do. You are putting your armour at their feet and you are saying ‘I will not fight you in this. I have loved you and that means that I have already won.”
