anything but you.

says you are blinding him
that he could never leave you
forget you
want anything but you
you dizzy him, you are unbearable

warsan shire

you are terrifying and strange and beautiful.

you can’t make homes out of human beings
someone should have already told you that
and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love.

who made me laugh again.

i will remember the kisses
our lips raw with love
and how you gave me
everything you had
and how i
offered you what was left of
me,
and i will remember your small room
the feel of you
the light in the window
your records
your books
our morning coffee
our noons our nights
our bodies spilled together
sleeping
the tiny flowing currents
immediate and forever
your leg my leg
your arm my arm
your smile and the warmth
of you
who made me laugh
again
