When I was little
I told my dad I stubbed my toe
So he told me to bite my finger
Until I forget about the toe
And was only thinking of the finger
To take one pain away by focusing on another
It actually sounds quite similar
To something I do now

It’s 100% a love story. The best love stories are the ones where they don’t end up together. We very deliberately tried to make it like a love story. She has girl, she loses girl, she tries to win girl back. Just trying to make it feel like it was existing within the tropes of a romantic love story, then letting the reins go. It’s sad. That’s my favorite feeling in movies, that ache.

I didn’t say “I love you” to hear it back. I said it to make sure you knew."

before you love, understand that
the expanses of their anatomy
are not a map. don’t expect to find
yourself in their calloused hands,
or the spaces between their teeth or
in words they utter that latch onto
your thirsty skin—
landmines drizzled in honey can
still tear you apart.
before your teeth graze their lips,
understand that your heart might
fall out of your chest, and that theirs
would not dare to. Some people only
want to be luminaries, setting your
darkness ablaze because everything
under their own skin is in ruins—
They forget your universe is water
and fish don’t drown.
before every atom in you separates
when their tongue is lost in yours,
understand that a kiss holds no
promise. it is a magical and empty
commitment from a warm body you
ache to hold, but sometimes your arms
are not a good fit for their torso—
that’s when you know their heat
will never quite compliment yours.
before you run, understand that
you are not afraid of love. No, you are
frightened by the fact one morning
you will wake with emptiness and
all that you felt before will be a foreign
memory. Or is it because you know that
it just might not happen, and your skin
will still tingle when they breathe your
name on your neck years down the line?
before you set yourself on fire, before
you label yourself the ‘bringer of doom’,
before you think those lovely flowers
lodged in the back of your throat, will
wilt the moment they kiss your lips.
before a lot of befores, know that any
soul that tries to touch yours is stained
with such wondrous colors, and some
do not have the eye for stirring beauty.
