i have this habit of
hating people
for making me love them.

it's always the small things,
the hazy images that stick with you
for days and
months and years and
lifetimes. the kind of thing
you never imagined yourself
remembering.

like the low, hungry grumble of
that boy's car. i despised him for
draping his wrist 
over the wheel, his fingers
above my knee, always. 

the summer was hot and
so was he, and i 
was so desperate to escape. i hated 
the home i found in
him (which was just as empty as
mine).

but it doesn't 
matter, because
that was then and
this is now--

i think
i'm learning to love the way i'm
kinda-sorta-maybe-yes-i don't-know falling in
love with the shadow of
his eyelash on his
cheek, and i i think i might be okay
with loving him, too. 
full title: a really late kinda shitty Valentine for a boy who deserves a thousand paper hearts.

Instead of a thousand paper hearts I think any man would rather have your heart.

A pleasure to read, as always.
