“they say we’re losing centimetres
every year; as if we were
a beach that’s losing
ground with every salt advance

the night is overcast
but why not try, at least,
to touch the things our orbits
cannot hold, while there’s time
while we can.”

“You were a summer gift, one I’ll always treasure. You were a dream I never wanted to wake up from. You opened my eyes to things I’ll never really see. You’re the best thing that will ever happen to me.”

and I will whisper it
and shout it
and write it
and carve it into my skin
if only blood
would tell you
the truth you need to see.
I am yours
and I have never
been anyone’s elses.”

I don’t know how my book
will end.

All I know is that love
is not the modern invention
of rebellious young girls.

Love is ancient.
A legend.
The truth.”

But the best, as well.”
