  2. "

    My friend once told me
    she liked this guy because of his hands
    And I found it absurd that anyone
    would develop feelings over one feature,
    and not care about the rest

    It wasn’t until you used your hands
    to cup the back of my neck the first time we kissed
    and I could feel your firm grasp pull me closer,
    and my insides exploded
    and my head buzzed with bliss.

    And the first night you slept over,
    you fell asleep with your hand
    laid over my stomach
    and your fingers felt like a fire
    that I didn’t mind burning my skin.

    The first time we got drunk,
    was the first time you played with my hair,
    and my god I was hooked,
    I’d drink forever if it meant you’d never stop.

    And in public you’d hold my hand,
    and rub your thumb in little circles
    that left me wanting you more,
    no matter what you would never let me go,
    I was glued to you,
    and I honestly didn’t mind

    When we talked about breaking up,
    you saw my lips quiver with fear,
    and you brushed over my lips with your fingers
    before pulling me into your lap
    and you kissed me like never before.
    With your hands on my hips
    pulling me so close to you,
    leaving no space in between us.
    It was then I realized I never wanted you to go

    Its now that,
    I finally understand why hands
    were the only feature that mattered

  5. "She moved on, and i feel sorry for you, because she thought you were the most amazing boy ever. If she could have had any guy in the world, she still would have picked you. Now, you’re just another part of her past, a memory faded every day. And someday, she’ll find the one she deserves, and he will make her the happiest girl in the world."

  8. "The thing about on/off relationships is… They’re great until they’re not, they’re the things of dreams, until, suddenly, you’re living a nightmare. They’re the perfect song, on a broken record. They’re a great book, possibly the greatest, but with key chapters missing. They’re breakfast in bed on a powder blue morning, and then days in bed, without eating. They’re breakups that you don’t know how to mourn, because you can’t fathom that this one, this is the last.

    They’re drunk break-up sex and drunk make-up texts at 3am. They’re feeling cheated and feeling guilty. They’re feeling loved, they’re feeling special.

    They’re intoxicating. Because you keep making the same mistakes, over and over again, because you keep falling into the same pattern. They’re familiar and safe, and like a home you come back to - no matter where, or how broken - it’s a home no less; they know you and you know them.

    But see, the thing is, after a while, you no longer hear the music on the broken record - you just hear silence; and you no longer care about the characters, you just want the book to end. Every off, every break chips away.

    At some point you realize that love should be more than drunk-3am-s that make you afraid that life will never be that perfect again. At some point you no longer want love to be a roller coaster.

    Or so I’ve heard. I hope it’s true. But right now, if you called and asked me to - I’d go back, I’d do it all over again."

  9. "One of my philosophy professors lectured wildly about love once, yelling: “When you’re in love with someone, that person is the lighthouse of your universe.” (I scrawled it inside Science and Poetry in pencil—lighthouse of your universe—as if I would ever forget that phrase.) He was a delightful caricature of his position. I could swear he literally tore his hair out while howling at us. He went on, “Nothing means as much without that person.” One of the men in the class repeated, incredulous, half-laughing, “So you’re saying you can’t enjoy, like, a vacation, without someone if you’re really in love with them?” “Of course not.” the professor replied. “Not completely. You recognize beauty, but beauty means less if they don’t witness it with you. Beauty is less. You see something sublime and your first thought is that they should be there with you. It’s not as good without them. They illuminate. They make everything more."
