and make passionate sense to you."

I’m scared that it’s always going to be you and we fucked it up and everything else we do is going to be some kind of haunted. I’m scared that I’ll find your ghost living everywhere. That 30 years from now I’ll be standing in the kitchen of my own home and the windows will be wide open. My husband will be sitting on the counter behind me talking about the financial report on the newspaper. The kids are somewhere upstairs. And my hands will tighten around the cup of tea that I’m holding and I’ll remember that your ears were always slightly too big for your head, that I nibbled on them, that you listened to music with your eyes closed, that you held me like I was something important, that it felt like forever even though both of us knew it wasn't. And who can feel that kind of regret and not be crippled with it? Who can say, without a tremble, that we loved and that it was beautiful and full, and somehow that it still wasn't enough?

except upon occasions
when my heart was touched."

"I had thoughts about him I hardly knew what to do with, and he read every one. Whatever I felt, whatever I wanted, he gave himself up to. And in that moment everything I knew to be true about myself up until then was gone. I was acting like another woman, yet I was more myself than ever before."

It Will Not Change by Sara Teasdale

It Will Not Change

It will not change now
After so many years;
Life has not broken it
With parting or tears;
Death will not alter it,
It will live on
In all my songs for you
When I am gone.

-Sara Teasdale

My Body Obeys You

My body obeys you
without thought or choice;
under the pendulum-swing of your eyes
I obey you
with or without love
that pains your lips
either way
to say or not
while my body obeys you
