"Sometimes we hold hands when we fuck
because we can be as rough as we want
with each other’s bodies
but me holding your hand is my way of reminding you
that I’m nothing but gentle with your heart."
"Give me the chance to fight for you, surely you know I’d break my back for the smallest chance to hold your hand."
"I want to break apart your ribs and crawl inside, I want to bruise you from the inside out
I will show you that the greatest loves leave you broken,
leave you gasping."
"Sometimes, when it’s raining, I think about you. I think about you all the way over there, with all that ocean and all those years between us. I think about if you’re doing well, what your bedroom looks like, if you enjoy your job. I think about the times when there wasn’t any ocean between us and my time was your time. I think about when I knew the answers about you, because they were my answers as much as they were yours. Sometimes, when it’s raining, I wonder if it’s raining where you are too."
