i can relate

“Date someone who is interested in you. I don’t mean someone who thinks you’re cute or funny. I mean someone who wants to know every insignificant detail about you. Someone who wants to read every word you write. Someone who wants hear every note of your favourite song, and watch every scene of your favourite movie. Someone wants to find every scar upon your body, and learn where each one came from. Someone who wants to know your favourite brand of toothpaste, and which quotes resonate deep inside your bones when you hear them. There is a difference between attraction and interest. Find the person who wants to learn every aspect of who you are.”

Soul Mate

There is not a purpose to this life. And no reason to fear what lies beyond. I live so that in my final hour a steady flow of white silk might slip from my soul. Calmly I watch as the world around gets whisked away into bedlam. And I pray that one day it might all fall still. I long to find another who only wishes to rest. To fuse their limp and weary flesh with mine.

The cloud of haze and confusion I imagine must part only when my eyes stop seeking and my breath stops heaving will leave in its’ wake a peaceful place, that will force me to look back and realize that every moment was precious, so though none and I can win the unwinnable race, I still desire to find another to fritter away the time with until peace might fill us both.
