you're good for me, you're destroying me

I want to walk into the heart of you and never walk back out.

 Cara Thayer and Louie Van Patten - “Confrontational Paintings of Intimacy”

We are not embarrassed to hold hands
even when our fingers sweat.
We are not ashamed to stabilise
each other when we shake.
We are not afraid to kiss until the
suction becomes too intense
to break away from.
Always biting down harder.
Testing refrain. Testing pain thresholds.
Testing temperatures.
We are busy learning sign language
to minimise noise just so we can hear
the quiet yearning of the sweat,
the shaking, the suction.
Loving gently like harps, like the
fingers that pluck the harp
so nimble, so entirely exquisite
like freshly fallen frost.
Love has made us nocturnal -
the night ripe and us peeling it,
dawn unfurling in our arms.
We kiss like whiplash.
Kiss like this.
Kiss like yes.
Just kiss.

I am that clumsy human, always loving, loving, loving. And loving. And never leaving.

Right now I feel very alive and very in love and I am very grateful.


I didn’t fall in love with you. I walked into love with you, with my eyes wide open, choosing to take every step along the way. I do believe in fate and destiny, but I also believe we are only fated to do the things that we’d choose anyway. 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 (via 5000letters)

I like poems about survival and love, I like the feeling I get just before a kiss I don’t know is coming, I like sitting in a dark room with slow heartbeat-like music playing in the background, I like talking on the phone late at night because it feels like everything is more vulnerable then, and speaking of that, I like vulnerable things, I like soft and tender, I like the moments in which I am gentle and kind and not harsh and ravaged, and I like it when life doesn’t make itself too invisible, when it is curled up right inside my palm.


Nan Goldin

I feel like a very different person and I sometimes wonder if I’m just the same girl in a different place or if everything else is the same and my heart is just constantly changing because it doesn’t know what it wants.
