You know that feeling when you take a cold shower after being out in the sun all day? That’s what this hydrating gel feels like.
He becomes shapeless in my mind
the way all past lovers do after they’ve had enough of me.
As badly as you believe in what could be, it’s the longing that keeps you apart.
I think I love you, I say, and he turns on the gaslight.
Right now, love isn’t in the cards for you, and that’s okay. Something greater and more beautiful than you could ever imagine is on its way to greet you.
Those big, beautiful things you want most in your life are going to come to you unexpectedly, and until then, appreciate the little moments that make you believe in the power of hope.
Please remember that just because it’s not in the palm of your hands doesn’t mean it’s not at your fingertips.
Maybe that’s all we were–two people, trying to make sense of things, conflating with silent, tender desires.
I mean, don’t get me wrong, I really like Harry Styles and Timothee Chalamat (as we all do), but when it comes to men that I actually have a chance of dating, I have a hard time.
The love that is meant to be yours will find you when you stop looking for it.
