Once I found a butterfly’s wing on the sidewalk
I wanted to keep it, but I didn’t
I knew there were things I should never find beautiful
like death and girls.

Each time we met, I could hardly wait to see her. I couldn’t sleep; I was happy but anxious because I felt so great when I was with her, and I was afraid of losing her. And that was when something started to grow: my desire for her. My desire to be in her arms, to caress her, to kiss her, my desire for her to want it too, to want me. Now…we’re really close. I sometimes sense some ambiguity…and I wait…holding my breath in suspended animation.

The more you love me, the more I will ruin you. I will take my darkness and I will push it inside you.

I wanted to choose words that even you
would have to be changed by

Adrienne Rich

there still might be a place
for us
somewhere.

Charles Bukowski

Love, I know it is not sexy to make-out
with someone who so constantly
has their foot in their mouth.
But remember
I am also the one who told you
I want to feel you like the lifelines on the palms of Jesus
felt the nails go through.
