    we f.uck like we’re the only ones who do it right. You say my name and it comes out like a dark confession. Our mouths swing open like doors. Our mouths open and we spill into each other, like wine.

    At the same time, you have to find the right distance between people. Too close, and they overwhelm you, too far and they abandon you.

    That night was nothing but getting to know how smooth your body is. The memory of it goes through me like brandy.

    I will only let you touch me, if your hands are so full of intention, that every brush of your palms feels like you’re writing a novel on my skin.

    Nothing compares to your hands, nothing like the green-gold of your eyes. My body is filled with you for days and days. you are the mirror of the night. the violent flash of lightning. the dampness of the earth. The hollow of your armpits is my shelter. my fingers touch your blood. All my joy is to feel life spring from your flower-fountain that mine keeps to fill all the paths of my nerves which are yours.
    — Frida Kahlo, The Diary of Frida Kahlo: An Intimate Self-Portrait

    People who like to be in control of things can have a hard time with intimacy. Intimacy is anarchic and mutual and definitionally incompatible with control. You seek to control things because you are afraid.

    I don’t think relationships are just physicality. There are ways to show you care about someone, not just using your lips… Or any other body part.

    You think that time heals
    and walls hide things
    but it isn’t true. When
    things get that deep
    inside you there isn’t ANY-
    body can change them.

    We do not need to reveal ourselves to others, but only to those we love. For then we are no longer revealing ourselves in order to seem but in order to give. There is much more strength in a man who reveals himself only when it is necessary. I have suffered from being alone, but because I have been able to keep my secret I have overcome the suffering of loneliness.

    My need for you is formidable and vast. I crave you in such dark and indecent ways to speak them aloud would blacken my tongue. I intend to hear you breathless, to feel the urgency in your bones, to nourish a thirst that will not subside until your body is blushed red and blazing hot in my hands.

    So come, come curl up into the nook of my neck. Feel my chest rise and ebb, my pulse slow and speed and stop. Lean into these bones, all of them yours. I want to rest with you here and preserve this moment. We will watch time swim on by without us. We will howl to the stars and sleep as the sun rises. I’d forgotten the good the right person can do, that I needn’t bear this weight on my own. Around you, I’m beginning to actually like who I am. And I don’t know how to express just how grateful I am for that. So, gather your breath, fall back into the bed, and let these hands show you instead.

    Opening up to the wrong person is
    like putting ammo in their hands.

    Show me the sum of your parts, the layers and layers beneath the lie, the mayhem and madness behind the mask — every dark, ugly truth you conceal underneath that pretty, picture perfect front. Let down your guard and be ruthlessly yourself, I want you for your raw, whole honest heart.

    For if a man chooses to be
    prom.iscuous, he may still aesthetically turn up his nose at prom.iscuity. He may still demand a woman be faithful to him, to save him from his own l.ust. But women have l.ust, too. Why should they be relegated to the position of custodian of emotions, watcher of the infants, feeder of soul, body and pride of man? Being born a woman is my awful tragedy. From the moment I was conceived I was doomed to sprout breasts and ovaries rather than p.enis and sc.rotum; to have my whole circle of action, thought and feeling rigidly circumscribed by my inescapable femininity. Yes, my consuming desire to mingle with road crews, sailors and soldiers, bar room regulars - to be a part of a scene, anonymous, listening, recording - all is spoiled by the fact that I am a girl, a female always in danger of assault and battery. My consuming interest in men and their lives is often misconstrued as a desire to seduce them, or as an invitation to intimacy. Yet, God, I want to talk to everybody I can as deeply as I can. I want to be able to sleep in an open field, to travel west, to walk freely at night…

    I used to arch my back for boys who couldn’t even remember the color of my bedsheets, but you, however, made me turnover the arch on my mouth. You’ve sucked the bitterness from my neck and taught my lips how to sing songs of laughter – going easy, going slow. Fast, hard, who cares now? You can’t break me. You shook off the nervousness from my bones when you made a home between my thighs.

    I don’t suppose you have many friends. Neither do I. I don’t trust people who say they have a lot of friends. It’s a sure sign that they don’t really know anyone.

    Introverts don’t get lonely if they don’t socialize with a lot of people, but we do get lonely if we don’t have intimate interactions on a regular basis.

    intimacy is not who you let touch you.
    Intimacy is who you text at 3 am about your dreams and fears.
    Intimacy is giving someone your attention, when ten other people are asking for it.
    Intimacy is the person always in the back of your mind, no matter how distracted you are.

    It is terrifying to think that one day you will trust somebody enough to let them see you naked. You will undress and remind them that you’ve stretch marks and birth marks and scars from having chicken pox when you were little and scars from all of the other things now. You will blush thousands of shades of red, painting yourself as a rose losing its petals. And that person - that person will take it all in. And I wonder if they will reassure you. But mostly, I wonder if they will even see anything worth reassuring you about. I hope they see each freckle on your back as if it’s a star and you are the whole universe to them.

    Because you are not mad, or wild, or grieving! You are not roaring out to choke her with your own bare hands! Which means your soul is not too mixed up with hers. And that is good. Here is my experience. Stay away from the ones you love too much. Those are the ones who will kill you.
