Everything we want is a click away. While that is good, do you realize how often we tend to start expecting similar instant gratification in other aspects of our lives?
I will never forget how you made me feel alive.
I’ve never felt anything so real before, so raw. I’ve never met a person whose simple existence could make me feel alive.
We convince the outside world that we are fine, even if we are aching for help, and that is why we don’t get it. That is why the distance between us and everyone around us widens. We are all running away from each other, when we should be running towards one another.
Just being there produces love.
That afternoon I was trying to press my soft body up against something hard and rough, industrial but wearing human skin.
No matter how inwardly connected we are, we are not islands unto ourselves. We need others with whom to share our love and our joy. We need others to play with and learn with.
When was the last time you wished you could slow down time?
You get goose bumps on your thighs when they use big words.
Give me your pain
In the threads of your favorite shirt
That smell like sweat and musk and regret…
And a little like vanilla.
