"You tried to change, didn’t you?
Closed your mouth more,
tried to be softer,
less volatile, less awake.
But even when sleeping you could feel
him travelling away from you in his dreams.
So what did you want to do, love?
Split his head open?
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."
"Be with someone that requires you to grow, makes you forget your problems, holds your hand, likes to kiss, appreciates art, and adores you."
Imagine your girlfriend taking photographs of you, not selfies, not “outfit of the day”, no Instagram bullshit. Actual photos. When you wake up, when you look at her, when you’re making love, when you’re cooking, when you’re taking a shower. Imagine if your girlfriend did that. This is a person who loves creating a visual documentation of the person she loves. You would cry at every picture she took because you know it’ll be purer than any other visual representation of yourself.
"He loved her, of course, but better than that, he chose her, day after day. Choice: that was the thing."
