i think of lovers as trees, growing to and from one another searching for the same light, my mothers laughter in a dark room, a photograph greying under my touch, this is all i know how to do, carry loss around until i begin to resemble every bad memory, every terrible fear, every nightmare anyone has ever had. you say of course, of course so quickly that you sound like someone else i ask are you made of steel? you cry on the phone, my stomach hurts i let you leave, i need someone who knows how to stay.” 5.

If you don't photo well and don't look like captain America, getting a match is hard enough.... I started with something creative, and she appreciated it.
