‘you are in love
what does love look like’
to which i replied
‘like everything i’ve ever lost
come back to me.’

Date someone who is interested in you. I don’t mean someone who thinks you’re cute or funny. I mean someone who wants to know every insignificant detail about you. Someone who wants to read every word you write. Someone who wants to hear every note of your favourite song, and watch every scene of your favourite movie. Someone who wants to find every scar upon your body, and learn where each one came from. Someone who wants to know your favourite brand of toothpaste, and which quotes resonate deep inside your bones when you hear them. There is a difference between attraction and interest. Find the person who wants to learn every aspect of who you are, and hold onto them.

ON LONG DISTANCES.
went over to a friend’s apartment to hang out after school today. his boyfriend was away the entire week on the east coast for work, he was flying back in the evening.
he got home. my friend rushed from where we were sitting to the foyer. no words were exchanged; i suppose no words were needed. they embraced standing there for a good 5 minutes in silence.
i stood by the window, silently witnessing this small magical moment. living vicariously through their embrace, trying to understand what it feels like to be yearned for after such an absence.
