    And though it’s easier now, I will always remember
    the night that I almost drowned all alone in the house.

    you know i love you
    but i just can’t take this,
    you know i love you but
    i’m playing for keeps.
    although i need you,
    i’m not gonna make this.
    you know i want to
    but i’m in too deep.

    “when it came to listening
    my mother taught me silence
    if you are drowning their voice with yours
    how will you hear them she asked
    when it came to speaking
    she said do it with commitment
    every word you say
    is your own responsibility
    when it came to being
    she said be tender and tough at once
    you need to be vulnerable to live fully
    but rough enough to survive it all
    when it came to choosing
    she asked me to be thankful
    for the choices i had that
    she never had the privilege of making”

    ‘as you are.’ says the universe.

    you are happening now.
    right now.
    right at this moment
    your happening
    is beautiful.
    the thing that both keeps me alive
    brings me to my knees.
    you don’t even know how breathtaking you
    as you are.’ says the universe through tears.

    happens to my son
    living within my skin.
    drinking my cells.
    my water.
    my organs.
    his soft psyche turning cruel.
    does he not remember

    Perhaps the actual problem is the inexcusable way
    I have taught myself to love people.
    If my heart was a flower it would be
    an anomaly born without sepal or petals.
    Whole pieces of my soul-gold invested
    inside the bank of someone else’s heart.
    I mean, Aphrodite never shows up at school,
    book in hand, teaching love as the only real art.
    There are no classes in the coping with the loss
    of whole people, no warnings left on memory’s tombs.
    They say love is what makes the world go round,
    but no one ever leaves a note for us in the womb.
    No instruction manual when we are born,
    nor a how-to guide on the correct way to fall.
    Nor one on how to barter pieces of yourself
    without losing an eternity inside someone else’s soul.
    I’m afraid this is why I have always been so lost.
    I have been loved, and I have loved
    but I never learned how to gracefully bear the cost.

    I thought I had found a swan
    but it was a migrating snow goose.
    I thought I was linked invisibly to another’s life
    but I found myself more alone with him than without him.
    I thought I had found a fire
    but it was the play of light on bright stones.
    I thought I was wounded to the core
    but I was only bruised.

    Sometimes in late summer I won’t touch anything, not the flowers, not the blackberries brimming in the thickets; I won’t drink from the pond; I won’t name the birds or the trees; I won’t whisper my own name. One morning the fox came down the hill, glittering and confident, and didn’t see me—and I thought: so this is the world. I’m not in it. It is beautiful.

    no one can ever figure out what you want, and you won’t tell them, and you realize the one person in the world who loves you isn’t the one you thought it would be, and you don’t trust him to love you in a way you would enjoy.

    Children are knives, my mother once said. They don’t mean to, but they cut. And yet we cling to them, don’t we, we clasp them until the blood flows.

    “Yes, of course I’ve hardened, of course I have had to change to survive in this unforgiving world. But somewhere inside me, there still lives a little girl who once tried to invent a time machine, just to go back in time to save Vincent Van Gogh from his sadness when she heard he ate yellow paint to get the happiness inside him.”

    To be human
    and love someone
    is savage beauty,
    and there are no gods
    to answer for it.
    Perhaps this is why
    we choose betrayal:
    because no one
    can help us decipher
    what love really is.
    — Nikita Gill
