    it was as if the whole world could be reduced to the sound of a single string being played, and the only thing this sound could make me think of was you. Sometimes desire is air; sometimes desire is liquid. And every now and then, when everything else is air and liquid, desire solidifies, and the body is the magnet that draws its weight.

    I was still scared by every gap in our conversation, fearing that this was it, the point where we had nothing left to say. I was still trying to impress you, and I still wanted to be impressed by you, so I could pass along pieces of your impressiveness in stories to my friends, convincing myself this was possible.

    There are times when I’m alone that I think, This is it. This is actually the natural state. All I need are my thoughts and my small acts of creation and my ability to go or do whatever I want to go or do. I am myself, and that is the point. Pairing is a social construction. It is by no means necessary for everyone to do it. Maybe I’m better like this. Maybe I could live my life in my own world, and then simply leave it when it’s time to go.

    Nights when I need to sleep and you can’t. Days when I want to talk and you won’t. Hours when every noise you make interferes with my silence. Weeks when there is a buzzing in the air, and we both pretend we don’t hear it

    When I say, Be my lover, I don’t mean, Let’s have an affair.I don’t mean, Sleep with me.I don’t mean, Be my secret.
    I want us to go back down to that root.
    I want you to be the one who loves me.
    I want to be the one who loves you.

    I guess I don’t believe in a small break. I feel a break is a break, and if it starts small, it only gets wider.

    basis, n.

    There has to be a moment at the beginning when you wonder whether you’re in love with the person or in love with the feeling of love itself.

    I imagine you saved my life. And then I wonder if I’m just imagining it.

    “Just be warned,” you said. “Someday you’ll ask me to give up something I really love, and then it’s going to get ugly.”
