"Falling in love is not the only adventure worthy of a young woman."

"your back, that perfect curve,
that delicate hill that holds an entire city
in its gentle slope,
this is what I remember when you are gone.
however far you said you were,
I stopped listening after the first hundred miles.
you turned into an echo that
made it hard to sleep at night.
your hands, those flower stems gently
sleeping underneath a thin blanket of skin,
the petals at the tip of your fingers that opened
like little suns and burned my cheeks with softness,
this is what I remember when you are not here.
when the connection speed is low and I can’t
pretend to be close to you.
we can make it work.
we can make it work.

I fall asleep with this phrase
punching the roof of my mouth.
we can make it work.
we are stronger than this.

I wake up choking.
some days I can’t feel your ghost
and I go to every place we’ve ever been
just to conjure you.
then, when I find you, transparent
and beautiful, and there,
I am at peace. I walk home blooming.
your mouth.
your soft lips.
the way they moved me like
a hurricane.
this is what I remember when the night closes
and you are still not here.
we can make it work.
we can make it work.
it will be hard but we can make it work.
I love you.
I love you.
I love you.
is that enough?

"When I am with you, there is nowhere else I’d rather be. And I am a person who always wants to be somewhere else."

David Levithan, How They Met, and Other Stories 

Still haven’t found someone who instills this feeling in me.

"We are torn between nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange. As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have never known."
