with a quickness.

I can’t help but obsess over so much in life. I get stuck on the things that take the reality away. I will start a series of books in it’s early stages and I will follow that series while book after book come out. I will find a show that I like and just watch it and watch it an watch it until I can’t watch anymore. When I find a food I like, I will eat every day because I just can’t get enough. I will obsess and be stuck on everything that I find an ounce of joy in, until it runs out. And then I am left sad and broken. Maybe I put too much faith in my obsessions, hoping that they’ll just last this time.

But you were my favorite thing to get stuck on, my absolute favorite obsession. The world doesn’t stop with you, it disappears. None of it ever matters with you. I don’t need my books or my shows or my food or anything while near you because what I extract from those books for survival are buried within your bones for me to suck out. You are the obsession to end all obsessions, but please don’t run out. Don’t let it come to an end like all others, I couldn’t take the fallout.

“Occasionally we let someone in, we open the folds of our insecurity and give access to the darkest parts of us. We hand over the key, and it’s terrifying. And sometimes they bump into a raw nerve, they say a callous insensitive remark, they ridicule a strange notion we have, they poke at our dreams just a bit. It hurts pretty bad and we push them out and fold up fast. We remind ourselves, “This is why I don’t let anyone in.” And we run.

It’s right here that most people apologize like crazy. They feel terrible. They were trying to figure out how to navigate the labyrinth of your wonderful story. It’s like holding a tiny flash light in a cave of a new world. They didn’t mean to provoke those old wounds. They didn’t mean to poke fun at your dreams. They considered it an honor that they held the key, even for a few frenzied moments.

Intimacy takes work, trust, wounds, hurts, sculpting in the dark: and that takes time. It takes more than a single chance. Of course we can close the doors, at any second, when we know it just won’t work. But there are many opportunities if we had trusted a little longer, reset the tempo, and spoke up louder: it would’ve been okay. Bridges would be built. New stories are made. You find your hand closing around theirs. They begin to traverse the folds of your heart with ease, and they learn to say those things which give life, which give freedom, which grow dreams. Intimacy is formed out of stumbling, but further down the path: there is so much light, so much laughter, so many steps to the horizon together.”

to live in this world

you must be able
to do three things
to love what is mortal;
to hold it

against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go.
