"Do you love with your mouth closed or open?
Do you taste chocolate or licorice when you kiss them?
When you see them, which hand reaches for them first?
Do you love with the blinds open?
In the daytime?
When no one is watching?
How many times a day do your feet tap the rhythm of their name?
Where do you like to fuck?
Where do you like to make love?
Is there a difference?
If so, what shade is it?
Do you still take your coffee black?
How long has it been since you smoked?
Do they make it easier to breathe
or do you still use your inhaler?
When was the last time you unlocked the liquor cabinet?
When you slow dance, are your eyes open or closed?
Do they smell like your sheets when you leave for work?
What does their sadness sound like?
Trumpets? A wolf howl?
Do they make you happier than I did?

"One day, whether you
you will stumble upon
someone who will start
a fire in you that cannot die.
However, the saddest,
most awful truth
you will ever come to find––
is they are not always
with whom we spend our lives."

Some people just make me feel instantly at home when I talk to them. I like people like that.
I used to be sad and deep, now I am happy and superficial.
It’s difficult trying to find a medium.
